Bernie Sanders: WE MUST BREAK UP THE LARGEST BANKS

BEST-OF from Bernie Sanders' Senate Filibuster

 Part Three: WE MUST BREAK UP THE LARGEST BANKS

THREE: While taxpayers bailed out Wall Street banks because they were too big to fail, 3 out of 4 financial institutions that were bailed out are now larger than before. Wells Fargo is 43% bigger, JP Morgan Chase 51% bigger, and Bank of America is 138% bigger. If we are serious about preventing a future collapse worse than the current one we have to break these banks up, says Sanders.
