A small business owner asked Bernie Sanders a question, and Bernie had an answer for him. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break down Bernie’s response. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“My question is this. I’m a business owner and we keep getting kicked in the teeth by this administration,” Jacobs asserted. “It’s regulation after regulation and tax after tax.
