Wealth Inequality in the U.S.

If you missed this video, it's worth a few minutes of your time.  Remember that the Republican Party serves as the sponsors and enablers of the richest Americans.  Remember that the so-called Sequester is kicking in because the Republicans in Congress believe that the burden of erasing our nation's debt should fall on those who are the least among us.  God forbid that the wealthy should have to give up a little scrap of their largesse!

What is amazing is that many of our wealthiest citizens and a goodly number of Republicans in Congress claim to be Christians yet fail to see the dichotomy between their religious confession and their actions.  I know many of them proudly confess "Jesus as their Lord," completely oblivious to the fact that Jesus did not give a whit about money and said quite clearly that the rich will never, ever, make it into the Kingdom of Heaven!
