Except Bernie isn't admitting that he has taken money from big oil also. Bernie is desperate and I'm afraid his team has made him cocky too. It's a bad combination. The sooner he drops out the better.
Do you have any links with info on how much each of them took from oil and gas companies? Do you have a link of her admitting that, yes, she took money and so did Sanders?She's pissed because Bernie's campaign keeps saying that she took campaign donations from oil and gas companies. What they fail to mention is that Bernie has too.
That's bit is not true at all. Bernie did NOT take any money from oil companies. Hillary on the other hand, constantly does.Do you have any links with info on how much each of them took from oil and gas companies? Do you have a link of her admitting that, yes, she took money and so did Sanders?
Or are you making stuff up?
There's not a dime's worth of difference between Comrade BS and the Queen of Corruption.
Hell yeah, Bernie would be a WAY better president for the United States than a dishonest corporate shill, or a insane xenophobic moron.Actually, there is. Two main things come to mind: first, the corruption aspect you mentioned. The second is honesty. I don't agree with Bernie on much but the guy is certainly not corrupt and might be the most honest guy running. Policy wise you might be right, but I would much rather have Bernie as president than Hillary.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2016/apr/01/sorting-out-clintons-fossil-fuel-contributions/Neither Clinton nor Sanders — or any other presidential candidate, for that matter — can accept money from fossil fuel companies (or any other corporation). That would be illegal under federal campaign finance laws.
So all the money in the coffers comes from individuals. The limit for this election is $2,700 per candidate per election (the primary and general election count separately). Political action committees can donate $5,000 per election to a candidate.
In fact, people in the fossil fuel industry have given to both campaigns, though they’ve donated more to Clinton.
According to the latest tallies from Center for Responsive Politics, Clinton's campaign has received $307,561 from people who work for oil and gas interests so far in the presidential race. Sanders has received nearly six times fewer dollars — $53,760.
For Clinton, that's 0.2 percent of the more than $159.9 million her campaign committee, Hillary for America, has raised. For Sanders, it's 0.04 percent of $139.8 million.
Now you are sounding like a Trumpeteer. No candidate can take any money directly from oil companies...it's illegal. Sanders is being untruthful and pandering to you just like Trump does to his supporters.. His people are getting desperate and he should just stick to his agenda instead of bad-mouthing Hillary unfairly. Hilary has also said many times that she will not be influenced by oil company executives donations and is a firm believer in AGW and the need to reduce fossil carbon emissions.
