Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an
adamant advocate for a real
healthcare reform
, has been vocal about holding Wall Street accountable
for the recent market crash since the very beginning. Now, after a
scandal with head of Citigroup’s energy-trading unit Andrew J. Hall, who
had allegedly been promised $100 million in bonuses, Sanders is growing
even more indignant and impatient with bankers and financiers and yet
again calls for more responsibility on their part. “What we need is a
new type of Wall Street, a Wall Street that is not interested in bubble
economics, in quick speculations but a Wall Street that wants to invest
in America, in our rural economy, rebuilding our manufacturing, creating
descent paying jobs, and not just enriching a handful of people who are
already extremely wealthy,” concludes Sanders.
