Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said when interviewed on MSNBC that Republicans were solely to blame for the lack of a budget deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.
“The problem that Boenher will have in the House is that his caucus is dominated by right-wing extremists who are very hesitant, who will do everything they can to prevent the wealthiest people in this country and the largest corporations from paying a nickel more in taxes.”
When asked by an MSNBC journalist, “Aren’t both parties to blame there in Washington?” he shot back, “No!” and proceeded to explain why.
