Flanked by a contingent of religious leaders, Sen. Bernie Sanders declared income inequality "one of the most profound moral issues of the 21st century" Friday.
"As the many comprehensive issues facing our country - and there are many - there is none more serious than this issue," Sanders, I-Vt.., said at a news conference Friday afternoon. "And I think the religious community in Vermont and throughout this country can and will play a very important part in bringing people together around this issue."
