A very dramatic video of an ice sculpture forming the words, Middle Class. As we watch the symbolic melting of the middle class, we hear the voice of iconic Barnie Sanders in the background, speaking about the threats to middle class America. Senator Sanders;
There is a war going on in this country and I’m not referring to the war in Iraq or the war in Afghanistan. I’m talking about a war being waged by some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this country against the working families of the United States of America. Against the disappearing and shrinking middle class of our country.
The reality is that many of the nation’s billionaires are on a warpath. They want more, more, more. Their greed has no end. And apparently there is very little concern for our country or for the people of this country if it gets in the way of the accumulation of more and more wealth and more and more power.
This is part of a speech Mr. Sanders gave on the Senate floor back in December 2012. He is one in a few that is brave enough to stand up and speak up on behalf of the American people. If all in Congress followed Sander’s lead and did what the people sent them there to do, America will truly be a shining beacon on a hill.
