Forbes came out with their top 400 wealthiest American’s today. Their combined wealth was 1.7 trillion, yeah read that again, 1.7 trillion. Friends that is 1/8th of the nations total wealth and all of that is in the hands of just 400 people. Then at the same time a fifth of our children; 16.4 million live in poverty and another fifth just above it.
There is something terrible and tragically wrong with this picture.
