Best Senate Statement on McCain And Economy This Week

It's from Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who went to the Senate floor on Monday and said this about John McCain and his philosophical twin, George W. Bush:
"One does try to get a handle on understanding what world Senator McCain and President Bush are living in when they would suggest that ``the fundamentals of our economy are strong.'  Clearly, they have not been talking to working families around the United States of America.

"My perception of the economy is if you get off of the country club circuit, you stop talking to the millionaires and the billionaires and the large campaign contributors, and you talk to ordinary working people, people who own small businesses, what you find, in fact, is that the middle class in our country is under more assault than has been the case since before the Great Depression."
Right on, Senator Sanders.
