Just because Cory Booker is a Democrat, it doesn’t make him a socialist, says the New Jersey senator and presidential candidate.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday night, Booker affirmed, “I am for capitalism,” while feeling the current system isn’t working, adding, “Monopolies are not capitalism.”
Booker says companies are the ones receiving government handouts, telling the host, “I’m tired of companies engaging in socialism where they outsource their costs.”
When asked by Matthews, “Are you a socialist?” Booker strongly denied, admitting, “I am not a socialist. I am a Democrat. I believe in fundamental Democratic principles.”
There are many options when it comes to salt these days, but is there really any difference between them and plain old table salt? While some people claim that sea salt is healthier, that isn’t exactly the case.
According to the Mayo Clinic, salt is pretty much the same when measured by sodium content and basic nutritional value.
However, a study published in the Environmental Science and Technology Journal reveals that sea salt could have a nasty surprise.
Thanks to ocean pollution, many sea salt brands were said to contain plastic microparticles.
