Not 'Broke' But 'Broken'

"Today just 400 Americans have the same wealth as half of all Americans combined." ~Michael Moore

As gas prices continue their steady incline, Americans are facing the prospect of increasing food, energy and commodity costs like never seen before.  Combine the increased costs for specific goods with a broad reaching inflation that will become more evident as this year continues, and what do we have - a plutocracy where only the lower class are targeted with austerity measures designed to remedy the struggling economies of states and the country at large.

National People’s Action recently issued a report about how Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have avoided paying billions of dollars in taxes. With the recipients of 2008 bail out funds continuing to abuse the system and profit nonetheless, how can state and federal governments propose austerity measures directed at lower income benefits and programs? 

"America ain't broke! The only thing that's broke is the moral compass of the rulers. And we aim to fix that compass and steer the ship ourselves from now on." ~Michael Moore
