On Tuesday, Sen. Sanders appeared on MSNBC and told host Thomas Roberts, “In America today you have the most uneven distribution of wealth and income of any major country on earth. You have the top 1% owning 42% of the wealth. the bottom 60% own 2.3% of the wealth. Do you think we should go after ordinary people who are hurting in the recession or ask the wealthiest people and around large corporations to pay their fair share?”
Sen. Sanders then appeared on the Thom Hartmann program and took questions from across the country.
