Curiously one-sided, this “getting the money out of politics.” Bernie plans to continue taking trillions from all of us and using it to buy the votes of people who want all the “free” tuition and healthcare and social security checks and so on.

It’s staggering corruption. Private citizens, companies, unions, activist groups and so on spending billions of their own money trying to influence voters are a threat. But politicians spending a thousand times that much — of someone else’s money — influencing those same voters are perfectly fine.
