Bernie Sanders: ‘I’m Not Happy’ I Voted for the 1994 Crime Bill

‘When you have a large bill, as you well know, Jake, that has many features in it, many provisions in it, you have to make a choice’

TAPPER: "I know hindsight is 20/20, but in retrospect, are you still glad that you voted for the 1994 crime bill?"
SANDERS: "No, I’m not happy that I voted for the terrible bill, but I’m happy that I was honest with the people of my state. People lose faith in politicians because they say one thing and do another thing. If you tell the people of my state of Vermont, 'I’ll do everything I can to put a ban on assault weapons,' and then you don’t do that, well, that is the other side of that coin."
