80% of Americans have 7% of America's wealth! (Sobering poverty in America video)
by Democrats Ramshield

...........Did you know 37 Million Americans live in poverty?............

As an American expat who holds an MBA degree living in the European Union
, this diary brings an international perspective to bear of the sort that the plutocracy owned American commercial for profit media tends to largely ignore, as it doesn't want to bite the hand that feeds it. This diary contains an embedded Youtube video in the public sphere, which portrays the stark reality that America's traditional poor and nouveau poor find themselves in, which to the extent that it exists in America, exists in no other major industrialized nation on earth. This diary and its contents reflect that sobering reality and therefore comes with this caveat. If you read this diary you may no longer be able to be indifferent to the plight of America's #OWS who stand up for the American working class dream.



America has a wholly inequitable distribution of wealth wherein 80% of the population only has access to 7% of America's money interests. This has led to medieval medical being performed that America's uninsured population is exposed to, wherein modern medical services are withheld (due to an inability to pay) to a large extent to the 59 million uninsured Americans. According to a recent Harvard Study this causes the unnecessary deaths of 45,000 Americans annually. The United States of America is the only major industrialized country in the world where all residents don't have access to medical care as a basic human right.
