The wealth gap is increasing faster than ever.
While reading a story on MSN MONEY this morning I found myself disguted again and realizing how important OWS is to the 99% of Americans. Here is an important excerpt.
The CEOs who made my final cut pull down vast amounts of money -- from $60 million to $145 million in a single year -- so you may find the size of the pay gaps astonishing.
It is clear that with CITIZENS UNITED and corporate owned politicians our only "choice," unless we take to the streets, en masse, and stay there until, YES, the wealth is redistributed, America is an illusion that is antiquated. We are slaves for the unjustly overpaid, wealthy.
Above is a link to this short MSN article. Please use the links and check-out the study on CEO pay that was done just last month. It is very disheartening and the "health-care" insurance CEO's are the most exorbitantly overpaid. If we had universal healthcare, their salaries and bonuses could pay for the first few years.
This study makes it abundantly clear that the middle class (soon to be the poor) and the already poor (monetarily) are suffering at historic levels.
We must show our strength, in the streets, until these corporate politicians actually represent the citizens.
