Bernie Sanders: 'Banks are too big to fail, their CEOs are too big to jail'

•, Jonathan Fisher

He says he's fed up with the fact that the wealthiest 14 people in America saw their wealth increase by $157 billion in two years, while 45 million Americans continue to languish in poverty.

In another example, as of 2013, the heirs of Wal-Mart own more wealth than the bottom 40% of the American population.

Sanders says he believes that as the wealthiest nation in the history of the world, the US shouldn't be experiencing such drastic levels of wealth inequality.

He wants to make tuition free in every public university in America, saying "if we can afford to spend $38 billion more on the military we can afford to spend more on education." 

He is not happy with the status quo, and he has made it his mission to "engage and defeat the billionaire class of America."
