Christine O'Donnell: Government is 'championing Marxism;' didn't steal RNC debate idea

Former Senate Candidate Christine O’Donnell gives reasons why she thinks the U.S. government is ‘championing Marxism,’ talks about her Troublemaker Fest and defends the claim that she stole the idea for the Tea Party versus Occupy Wall Street debate she is co-headlining at the Republican National Convention.

O’Donnell says, “And I would say [the U.S. government is] Marxist because of the things that you hear coming from [President Obama] about share the wealth, economic equality - and these sound bites might sound good and noble on the surface, but the problem is there's quantifiable data that prove that they simply don't work and we're a free market economy that's supposed to empower the individual, let each person use their gifts, use the rewards to create a better life for themselves instead of what Barack Obama is posing, a tax code that punishes hard work, a tax code that reduces everybody to exactly the same.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
