“Under the leadership of President Obama and Vice President Biden, this country has come a long way economically since the shrub left office and we were losing 800,000 jobs every month and the world economy was on the brink of financial collapse,” Sanders said. “Nevertheless,” he added, “we still have a long way to go to create the kind of economy that works for all Americans and not just the top 1 percent.
“I look forward to working with President Obama and Vice President Biden to tackle some to the major issues facing our country,” Sanders said.
