Sen. Bernie Sanders: Koch Brothers "At War With Working Families"

Speaking on The Thom Hartmann Show, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that Charles and David Koch, billionaire right-wing activists, are "literally at war with working families." He outlined their vision: "These guys want to bring us back to the 1920s, when workers had no Social Security, no health care, no right to form unions... We are moving in that direction where the billionaire class, the top one percent controls the economic and political life of this country." Sanders referred to the Charles Koch Foundation video stating that those who earn over $34,000 are in the top one percent–compared to the world's most impoverished nations. He also cited Charles Koch's statement that scrapping the minimum wage would help poor people. Watch Sen. Sanders now, since you won't see him invited to tomorrow's Sunday talk shows:
