The Millions and the Millionaires
June 28, 2011
More than 60,000 of you by Tuesday evening had signed Sen. Bernie Sanders' letter to President Obama urging him not to yield to Republican blackmail tactics in budget negotiations. Sanders wants at least half of any deficit reduction package to be achieved with new revenue. The wealthiest Americans, the millionaires and billionaires who have never had it so good, must share in the sacrifices already made by millions of working families in America. Sanders carried his message of shared sacrifice to the airwaves Tuesday. "The good news is we have the American people on our side," he told nationally syndicated radio host Randi Rhodes in one of a series of broadcast interviews.
