Bernie Sanders seems to be criticizing the influence of Wall Street lobbying and campaign donations on deregulating the financial industry. He argues this “government off their backs” approach allowed major banks and financial firms to engage in crooked, risky behavior that ultimately destroyed the economy. Sanders implies the lack of proper oversight directly contributed to the financial crisis.

His remarks suggest that re-regulating Wall Street with stricter rules and enforcement is needed to curb future misconduct and prevent another economic meltdown caused by the financial industry.

Overall, Sanders portrays Wall Street influence as undermining necessary government protections for consumers and the economy.
