Sen. Bernie Sanders: Gang of Six budget proposal ‘a disaster’

In the video above, Bernie Sanders does not appear until 8 minutes and 20 seconds into this 14 minute video, but I thought it was worth it to give you the whole thing. You can skip ahead if you like.

It is amazing to me that the President can tout a tax increase that cuts the maximum tax rate for the wealthy. To rebalance the wealth distribution in a way that will lead to a self-sustaining jobs recovery, the top rate needs to go up not down.

Fortunately, the time constraints will not allow us to pass this ridiculous bargain. Once we get the debt ceiling raised, maybe we get get the President off his compromise and start talking serious policy debate.
