Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) appeared Wednesday on MSNBC to discuss the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual report on poverty, where he described the report as a “horror show.”

The report found that 46.2 million Americans were living in poverty, the highest amount since the Census began recording the statistic 52 years ago.

“The middle class is collapsing and we have now by far the most unequal distribution of wealth and income of any major country on earth,” Sanders said.

“We need aggressive action on the part of the president and the Congress, and if the Republicans continue to say ‘no, no, no to jobs,’ the president has got to continue going around the country,” he added, “because I think the overwhelming majority of the people want a jobs program, they want to protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, they do not want to give any more tax breaks to the wealthy and large corporations.”
