Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont appeared on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on Thursday night to discuss the ongoing “Occupy Wall Street” protests.

“What I appreciate about what is going on in New York right now is there is a spotlight being focused on Wall Street, we desperately need that,” he said. “If we’re going to get out of this recession, we’re going to create the millions of jobs that we desperately need, we need real Wall Street reform.”

“Focusing attention on Wall Street is exactly the right thing to do,” Sanders added.
