DNC communications director Xochitl Hinojosa says Bernie Sanders is talking with his heart attack as a messaging moment about the importance of health care.

As the democratic presidential hopefuls prepare to debate Tuesday night, Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders released a plan on “corporate accountability and democracy”, which tries to go further than the proposals of the Massachusetts sen. Elizabeth Warren, a rival progressive.

To govern within the framework of a plan of corporate greed”,” by his campaign on Monday, Sanders would be published you are creating a new Agency within the Department of Commerce called the “Bureau of Corporate Governance.” It would issue charters of large companies, which they base their actions on more than just the interest of the shareholders. The plan applies to corporations with more than $100 million in annual sales or total assets and all publicly-traded companies.

This is a significantly lower threshold than the $1 billion bar for the annual revenue Warren earlier this year pushed a proposal that called for a similar office to be created called “Office of United States companies.”

“The new Federal Charter may require institutions to take into account the interests of all stakeholders in a company,” the post on Sanders’ campaign website says, “including employees, customers, shareholders and the communities in which the company operates.”


Sanders, a self-identified democratic socialist, has long aimed rails against big business and capitalism in General, and his latest proposal on the use of the government to give the order that the companies take into account the impact of their behavior on “society.”

In another 45 percent of their Supervisory boards, trying to one-up by Warren, Sanders’ plan to select public companies and corporations with more than $100 million in annual turnover or balance sheet total employees,. A Warren plan would only be 40 percent of these organs to be elected by employees and for companies with $1 billion or more in annual revenue.

“I’m not,” he told interviewer Jonathan Karl.


Sanders struggled with Warren for the rooms in the progressive lane of the 2020 primaries to seek both to provide a liberal alternative to the former Vice-President Joe Biden. Biden pitched to voters as a moderate in comparison to the rest of the Democratic field, but it could be more vulnerable as the front-runner at any point in the campaign, as he wrapped up the prosecution’s request in the President Trump.

A Fox News survey released last week, Warren suggests Sanders ‘ five points on the Biden-with 32 per cent-has found a significant 10-point lead over Warren.

After a heart attack earlier this month, Sanders will strive for a successful discussion Tuesday, may appease some of the Democrats, “the fears about the 78-year-old’s health.


“This year, the Business Roundtable empty words published to recognize the error in admitting companies to set profit and rate of return for the shareholders above everything. Empty words are not enough,” Sanders ” website says, in what could evening a preview of its rhetoric Tuesday. “This plan will ensure that companies treated their business in a fair way – a way that the workers and the communities in which companies operate with respect.”

Sanders’ Monday post contains a long list of other progressive proposals, including the reversal of the Trump tax cuts for corporations, for a ban on noncompetes, and forced arbitration, a determination to stop the FTC’s unilateral authority to go for mergers without a court and a requirement that large companies are, finally, at least 20 percent owned by employees.
