1/27 David Dayen: What the Liberal Attacks on Bernie Sanders Are Really About

January 27, 2016

Law Enforcement moves against the squatters in Oregon.

David Dayen explains the problem with liberal establishment attacks on Bernie Sanders and the deeper implications for reform policies.

-Why are establishment Democrats attacking the 21st century Glass-Steagall. Missing the point on stronger financial reform. Why institutions were to “interconnected” to fail. The need for structural reforms. The need for statutory reforms an the difficult of enforcing complex regulation. Restricting banking and protecting the economy. (11:30)

“Shadow Banking” and the distraction from the larger issues. Eliminating fraud and what Elizabeth Warren’s new Glass Steagall bill does. Why the arguments against serious banking reform is undermining vital economic protection, the global consensus on segregating assets in banking. Also why the attacks on Bernie Sanders matter beyond him. (31:00)

On The Fun Half: Donald Trump is not showing up to the next debate and its not going to matter. Fox News is not a news organization. Right Wing Mandela endorses Trump. Debbie Wasserman Schultz hugs Michael Bloomberg. Plutocrat runs ads attacking Bernie in Iowa and your calls and IMs.
