WASHINGTON — The Rev. Al Sharpton is condemning the Senate for failing to support President Barack Obama's jobs plan.
Sharpton spoke Saturday at the March on Washington for Jobs and Justice. He received cheers and applause when he said: "If you can't get the jobs bill done in the suites, then we will get the jobs bill done in the streets."
Sharpton says the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. would have supported the cause for the "cast down and cast back."
King's son Martin Luther King III also spoke. King invoked his father's words from a half-century ago, when the elder King talked about the need for redistributing wealth. King says his father believed America must redistribute wealth to survive responsibly.
