Last week, Ed did a special series on Wall Street’s role in driving up (and profiting from) prices on commodities from gas to wheat. Every night, we asked where the Democrats were on this. Since we began our series, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Policy Committee leader Chuck Schumer have both begun calling out Wall Street. But where is President Obama?
Republicans are blaming the crisis in the Mideast–and calling for more drilling. Sounds reasonable, but as Ed’s guest Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) points out on tonight’s program, supply isn’t a problem.
