[applause] mr. sanders: corporate america and the billionaire class are not going to hide their many billions in profits by putting them in the cayman islands and other tax havens. they are going to start paying their fair share of taxes. [applause] mr. sanders: whether they like it or not, their greed is going to end because we are going to end it for them.
