Bernie Sanders Says He Is A 'One-Issue Person'

Guess what that issue is...

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has long attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for being a one-issue candidate. On the stage at Sunday night's Democratic presidential debate in Flint, Michigan, Sanders said she was right -- with the requisite political spin.

Clinton criticized the senator for opposing the 2008 bailout, including funding that helped the auto industry, a major portion of Michigan's economy. Sanders said he was against bailing out Wall Street with taxpayer dollars, but did support the auto bailout and a stimulus package.

"Secretary Clinton says I'm a one-issue person -- well, I guess so," Sanders said. "My one issue is trying the rebuild a disappearing middle class. That's my one issue."
