Once again Senator Sanders fumbles when he’s not in his comfort zone attacking Wall Street or the big Banks.
“Senator Sanders argument that the Panama FTA would ‘effectively bar the United States from going after tax evaders in Panama’ is wrong,” said a joint statement by Rep. Sander Levin (D-Mich.), the senior Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee and former senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.). Sanders “asserted that combating tax haven abuse in Panama would be a violation of the Panama FTA.  There are many flaws in this argument, but one is particularly obvious: the Panama FTA clearly states that ‘nothing in this Agreement shall apply to taxation measures.’”
To run for president one needs to do their homework. Senator Sanders making these statements that have no basis in fact is the Republican way of doing things.
