From Sen. Bernie Sanders:

Sen. Bernie Sanders went to the Senate floor to explain why he opposed the nomination of Ben Bernanke for a second term as Fed chairman. While Bernanke was confirmed later in the day, 30 senators opposed him, far more "no" votes than the previous most for a Fed nominee (16 against Paul Volcker).

We need more Bernie Sanders out there standing up for the working class in this country.
