In part of a plan to rein in "corporate greed" released by his campaign Monday, Sanders would create a new agency within the Department of Commerce called the "Bureau of Corporate Governance." It would also issue charters to large companies requiring them to base their actions on more than just the interest of shareholders. The plan would apply to corporations with more than $100 million in annual revenue or balance sheet total and to all publicly traded companies.

AP FACT CHECK: Claims from the Democratic debate

  AP FACT CHECK: Claims from the Democratic debate WASHINGTON (AP) — Twelve Democrats seeking the presidency tussled Tuesday night in a wide-ranging debate featuring the largest number of qualifying candidates on the same stage. Here's a look at how some of their claims from Westerville, Ohio, stack up with the facts: ELIZABETH WARREN, senator from Massachusetts: "Mueller had shown to a fare-thee-well that this president obstructed justice." THE FACTS: That's not exactly what special counsel Robert Mueller showed.

DETROIT — It was one of the most substantive presidential primary debates in recent memory, and the two Democratic candidates with the most ambitious Instead the debate was a lovefest from the moment they walked onstage, as Ms. Warren wrapped her arm around Mr. Sanders ’s shoulder in a

That is a significantly lower threshold than the $1 billion bar for annual revenue Warren pushed earlier this year in a proposal that called for a similar bureau to be created called the "Office of United States Corporations."

"This new federal charter will require corporate boards to consider the interests of all of the stakeholders in a company," the post on Sanders' campaign website says, "including workers, customers, shareholders, and the communities in which the corporation operates."

Sanders, a self-identified democratic socialist, has long railed against big business and capitalism in general, and his newest proposal seeks to use the government to mandate that companies take into account how their behavior affects "society at large."

O'Rourke accuses Warren of being 'punitive' in proposals

  O'Rourke accuses Warren of being 'punitive' in proposals Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) sparred with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) over her proposed "wealth tax" to pay for her sweeping policy proposals at the Democratic presidential debate in Ohio on Tuesday night. O'Rourke, one of several candidates to question Warren's and Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) more liberal proposals, which include "Medicare for All" and a tax on the wealthiest Americans, said Warren "sometimes ... is more focused on being punitive or pitting one part of the country against the other instead of lifting people up.

Senator Bernie Sanders will return to the debate stage Tuesday , two weeks after suffering a heart “ I think he has only one objective in this debate , and that’s just to show that he’s healthy.” Mr. Sanders has been preparing for the debate at his home in Burlington, where he has largely followed his typical

Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders , the most liberal candidates in the crowded field, came under attack from their more moderate colleagues. The three women and seven men on stage in Michigan debated healthcare, border policy and how to defeat Donald Trump.

In another attempted one-up of Warren, Sanders' plan would require public companies and corporations with more than $100 million in annual revenue or balance sheet total to have employees elect 45 percent of their boards of directors. A Warren plan would require just 40 percent of such boards to be elected by employees and would apply to companies with $1 billion or more in yearly revenue.

During a Sunday interview with ABC's "This Week", Sanders slammed Warren for previously saying she is a "capitalist through her bones."

"I'm not," he told interviewer Jonathan Karl.

Sanders has battled with Warren for room in the progressive lane of the 2020 Democratic primary, with both seeking to provide a liberal alternative to former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden pitched himself to voters as a moderate compared to the rest of the Democratic field but could be a more vulnerable frontrunner than at any point in the campaign as he's been wrapped up in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Biden, Warren get in tense debate exchange over accomplishments

  Biden, Warren get in tense debate exchange over accomplishments Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) clashed with former Vice President Joe Biden after Biden touted his capacity to "get things done" compared with Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic debate Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio."I'm the only one on this stage that has gotten anything really big done," Biden said, citing his history of passing legislation such as the Violence Against Women Act during his time in the Senate.Warren retorted that she had established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which she proposed in 2007.

In a debate essentially defined by Sanders and Warren on one side, and less liberal candidates like Delaney, former Colorado Gov. (And CNN did try to create conflict, even where the candidates were unwilling to oblige them, like when they asked Warren about identifying as a “capitalist.”)

The first Democratic debate will begin right after this. I look forward to the discussion ahead . Thank you. SANDERS : Do I consider myself part of the casino capitalist process by which so few have so much and so many have so little by which Wall Street’s greed and recklessness wrecked this economy?

A Fox News survey released last week found Warren is beating Sanders by five points while Biden -- with 32 percent -- holds a significant 10-point lead over Warren.

After a heart attack earlier this month, Sanders will strive for a successful debate Tuesday, which could mollify some Democrats' fears about the 78-year-old's health.

"This year, the Business Roundtable released empty words recognizing the error in admitting corporations put profits and shareholder returns above everything else. Empty words are not enough," Sanders' website says in what could be a preview of his rhetoric Tuesday night. "This plan will ensure that corporations conduct business in a fair way – a way that treats workers and the communities in which businesses operate with respect."

Sanders' Monday post includes a long list of other progressive proposals, including reversing the Trump tax cut for corporations, a ban on noncompetes and forced arbitration, a provision giving the FTC unilateral authority to stop mergers without going to court and a requirement that large companies eventually become at least 20 percent employee-owned.
