Bernie Sanders Screams in Fox News Reporter's Face: "I Can Yell as Loud as You!"

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders erupted during a heated exchange with a Fox Business correspondent Thursday, telling her, “I can yell as loud as you!”

The heated exchange came after the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions held a hearing on his proposal to cut the standard workweek to 32 hours, with a pay loss.

Sanders argued that it was time for America to follow the lead of European nations, which have also lowered their work week.

While walking through the Senate hallway, Sanders was stopped by Fox Business reporter Hillary Vaughn.

“It seems like Democrats want businesses to be taxed more, pay their workers …” Vaughn began.

“Really? Is that what you think?” Sanders interjected, poking his hand in her face.

“They pay their workers …” Vaughn tried again.

“Excuse me! Excuse me!” Sanders said, growing more aggressive.

“I didn’t get to ask a question,” Vaughn said.

But Sanders ignored Vaughn’s attempt to break in.

“OK thank you. You wanna. Hold it, OK. We held a hearing on a 32-hour work week because what we have seen is that over the last 50 years, despite a huge increase in worker productivity, almost all of the wealth has gone to the top 1 percent while 60 percent of the people living paycheck to paycheck,” Sander said.

“Many of our people are exhausted. We work the longest hours of any people in the industrialized world. I think it is time for a shortened work week.”

“Let me ask you a question about that. Seems like Democrats want businesses to be taxed more, pay their workers more, lower prices, and now pay people not to work,” Vaughn said.

“Really? That’s not my assumption. I don’t think so. You know what Democrats — you know what I would like to see?” Sanders responded.

“I can yell as loud as you,” he said at one point as he again waved his hand in Vaughn’s face.

“How are businesses going to survive that? That’s the question. How can businesses survive that? How can businesses survive all of those proposals?” she asked.

“When Mr. Bezos pays an effective tax rate lower than the average worker, I think we have a real problem in our tax system. I think that billionaires have got to start paying their fair share of taxes. Thank you,” Sanders said.

Sanders said his proposal in a news release on his website, “is not a radical idea.”

“Today, American workers are over 400 percent more productive than they were in the 1940s. And yet, millions of Americans are working longer hours for lower wages than they were decades ago. That has got to change,” he said.

“The financial gains from the major advancements in artificial intelligence, automation, and new technology must benefit the working class, not just corporate CEOs and wealthy stockholders on Wall Street.”

“It is time to reduce the stress level in our country and allow Americans to enjoy a better quality of life. It is time for a 32-hour workweek with no loss in pay,” Sanders said.
