Track Bernie on Twitter and the "Senator Sanders Unfiltered" weekly webisode on Facebook.

While markets surged past 10,000, the official unemployment rate stood near 10 percent. The United States is in a unique historical position. People on top are doing extraordinarily well, but in the real world the middle class is collapsing. The top 1 percent owns more wealth than the bottom 90 percent. CEOs of large corporations earn 400 times what their workers make. That is not what America is supposed to be about. With all the issues we are dealing with -- from health care to global warming to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq -- please do not forgot what is happening to tens of millions of our brothers and our sisters out there who are struggling hard to keep their heads above water.
