Here’s one of the reasons I’m running for prez

The gap between the wealthy and the rest is reaching critical mass…

I’m sick and tired of the way politics are going in this country. The partisan battles have brought our economy to it’s knees and still the extreme Conservatives push for more damage.

The richest 1% of US Americans earn nearly a quarter of the country’s income and control an astonishing 40% of its wealth. Inequality in the US is more extreme than it’s been in almost a century — and the gap between the super rich and the poor and middle class people has widened drastically over the last 30 years.

Part of my platform is too start making these wealthy heavyweights pay their fair share of taxes! When a mega corporation like GE makes big profits while paying ZERO TAXES you know we have a problem.

The video takes 25 minutes to watch, but it’s well worth it.
