ECONOMIC INEQUALITY

"A nation will not surve morally or economically when so few have so much, while so many have so little."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Are we prepared to take on the enormous political power of the billionaire class or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy?"
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"During the last two years the wealthiest 14 Americans saw their wealth increase by $157 billion. This is truly unbelievable. This $157 billion INCREASE in wealth among 14 individuals is more wealth that is owned, collectively, by 130 million Americans. This country does not survive morally, economically or politically when so few have so much, and so many have so little."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"...for 40 years, the American middle class has been disappearing. Millions of people are working longer hours for lower wages despite a huge increase in technology and productivity. And what we have seen during that period is a massive transfer of trillions of dollars from the middle class to the top one-tenth of 1 percent of America massive wealth and income inequality, where you have 99 percent of all new income today going to the top 1 percent."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"In the 1980s and 1990s, Jack Welch, the CEO of General Electric, laid off over 100,000 employees. His reward? When he retired from GE, he received a golden parachute of over $400 million dollars. This is the kind of corporate greed and irresponsibility that is destroying the middle class and must be ended."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"In the United States today we have the most unequal wealth and income distribution of any major country on earth -- worse than at any time since the 1920s. This is an economy that must be changed in fundamental ways."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Let us wage a moral and political war against the gross wealth and income inequality... ...let us understand that when we stand together, we will always win."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Message to the billionaire class: You can't have it all!"
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Now is the time to alter our government. Now is the time to stop the movement toward oligarchy. Now is the time to create a government which represents all Americans and not just the 1%... No more excuses. We must all become involved in the political process."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"The billionaire class fully understands what is at stake. That's why a handful of them are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into the current elections. Their goal is not to strengthen the middle class, but continue the trend in which the rich are getting richer at the expense of everyone else."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"The Koch brothers and other billionaires are going to throw everything they've got at us. Bring it on. At the end of the day, our ideas are supported by the vast majority of the American people. Their ideas are supported by the billionaire class. Guess what? There are more of us than them."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"They talk about class warfare -- the fact of the matter is there has been class warfare for the last thirty years. It's a handful of billionaires taking on the entire middle-class and working-class of this country. And the result is you now have in America the most unequal distribution of wealth and income of any major country on Earth and the worst inequality in America since 1928. How could anybody defend the top 400 richest people in this country owning more wealth than the bottom half of America, 150 million people?"
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"This is what income inequality means in America, and why the gap between the very rich and everyone else is growing wider. According to a recent study, CEO pay is now 295 times more than the pay of a typical worker. In 1965, the differential was 20 times. We must create an economy that works for all, not just the top 1%."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"This is what class warfare looks like: The Business Roundtable - representing Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and others - has called on Congress to raise the eligibility age of Social Security and Medicare to 70, cut Social Security and veterans' COLAs, raise taxes on working families and cut taxes for the largest corporations in America."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"This is what oligarchy looks like: Today, the top one-tenth of 1 percent owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. The top one-hundredth of 1 percent makes more than 40 percent of all campaign contributions. The billionaire class owns the political system and reaps the benefits from it."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Today, the top one-tenth of 1% owns nearly as much wealth as the bottom 90%. The economic game is rigged, and this level of inequality is unsustainable. We need an economy that works for all, not just the powerful."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"Today, the United States is No. 1 in corporate profits, No. 1 in CEO salaries, No. 1 in childhood poverty and No. 1 in income and wealth inequality in the industrialized world."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"We need a growing middle class, not one that has been disappearing for 40 years. We need a vibrant one person-one vote democracy, not one which is dominated by billionaire campaign contributors. It's time for a political revolution. It's time to make our government work for all of us, and not just the 1%."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders

"We will not accept a society in which the very rich get richer, while almost everyone else becomes poorer."
~ Sen. Bernie Sanders
