“ This country does in fact have a serious deficit problem. But the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars - unpaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. It was caused by a recession as a result of the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street. And if those are the causes of the deficit, then I will be damned if we’re going to balance the budget on the backs of the elderly, the sick, the children, and the poor. That’s wrong. ”

—    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senate Budget Committee, November 18th 2011
