Bernie Sanders is one of the only leading politicians in our country that supports strong government intervention and regulation of most processes. Sanders would argue that the government should pay for citizens’ higher educations, and that government should regulate all business growth and profits. Sanders adamantly rants against the controlling nature of big business in our country’s society. He argues that in order to make the system more equal and level out productivity and growth across the socioeconomic continuum, we ought to tax private enterprise heavily. He is also a huge proponent of bridging the wage gap, both between genders and between socioeconomic classes and ethnicities.
