Bernie Sanders Is a ‘Great Fan of Pope Francis’

Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared on Face the Nation this morning. He was asked if he agreed with Pope Francis’ harsh condemnation of capitalism.

Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders supports Pope Francis in ending what he calls “casino-type capitalism.” The senator believes Pope Francis has been a “voice of conscience” all over the world.
