COLUMBIA, S.C. — Bernie Sanders hit back Saturday at moderate Democrats unhappy that he’s contesting the party’s presidential nomination again.
“I want to say a few words about an interesting event that was held in Charleston earlier this week sponsored by a national organization called Third Way, that represents the corporate wing of the Democratic Party and a group that receives a substantial amount of their support from Wall Street,” Sanders told the South Carolina Democratic Party convention.
The article goes on to state the following:
“At this Third Way meeting I was called, ‘an existential threat’ to the Democratic Party,” he said. “Now why am I an existential threat? Well, maybe it’s because my administration will fight to take on the insurance companies and the drug companies and pass a ‘Medicare for All’ single-payer program.”
The Vermont senator and self-described socialist then pivoted to highlight his 2020 campaign platform of breaking up the power wielded by Wall Street banks, as well as the fossil fuel and defense contracting industries. He also vowed to introduce reforms to make public college more affordable and minimize student debt.
I plead guilty to being an “existential threat” to the greed of corporate interests and rich campaign contributors who want to continue their dominance over the political and economic life of our country. https://t.co/r1wW4m9Ecr

The cat is out of the bag. The corporate wing of the Democratic Party is publicly “anybody but Bernie.” They know our progressive agenda of Medicare for All, breaking up big banks, taking on drug companies and raising wages is the real threat to the billionaire class. https://t.co/zimci7JRO6
