  •  Why poverty, Park Ave... (0+ / 0-)

    If all Americans could watch this documentary that I watched last night in Australia there would be a lot more understanding about what these rich people have been doing over the last 30 yrs.
     The show payed particular attention to the tax law Buffet is referring to.
     It used Park ave as a metaphor for the extreme disparity between these people and the poor by showing Park Ave in Manhattan, then crossing the bridge tp Park Ave in the south Bronx, it highlighted 740 Park ave where the 1% of the 1% live including David Koch, John Fein, Ezra Merkin, and Steve Shwartzman
    . It showed how the Tea Party is a phoney astro turf movement financed by Americans for prosperity.
     It highlighted brilliant graphs showing how the ultra rich have taken more and more while the rest of the country has stagnated.
    This show is the best I've ever seen for concisely showing this problem. I know it may not be possible for you to view it, but if you can find a way to watch please do. and finding a way to spread this would be extremely helpful.
