This Economy's Winners and Losers | Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont

Go ahead, ask me who I love more: the middle class, the poor or the rich. 

Never mind, I'll tell you: I love them all. Meaning I have close friends who are rich and poor and in between and I love them all — as I believe we are all loved and valued by our creator. 

Now ask whose wellbeing I worry about.

Not the wealthy...I do not worry that the wealthy won't make it one way or another. 

If we're all in this together — e pluribus unum — then I don't think this is rocket science. Everybody contributes, everybody pays, everybody benefits. Fair is fair.
