Sanders: Stand Up to Wall Street, Break Up Big Banks

SAN FRANCISCO - Speaking last night at the Commonwealth Club of California, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said it is time to break up “too-big-to-fail” Wall Street banks that have grown larger and more powerful since taxpayers bailed them out after the 2008 financial collapse.

“No single financial institution should have holdings so extensive that its failure could send the world economy into another financial crisis. If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist,” Sanders said.
