My ideas aren't radical, Sanders tells Democrat skeptics

Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders has fumed at the inequality in the US, where he said the top 0.1% of Americans owns as much wealth as the bottom 90%Fighting tooth and nail against frontrunner Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders said that he is no radical and that voters will embrace his agenda to end US income inequality. Clinton and Sanders are running neck and neck here, with former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley a distant third. “In countries around the world, in Scandinavia and in Germany, the ideas that I am talking about are not radical ideas,” said Sanders, referring to his plans to provide universal health care coverage, rein in Wall Street and involve government in helping students pay for college.
