“America is not broke” – Michael Moore speaks up for workers in Wisconsin

Michael Moore, maker of documentaries such as Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11, yesterday went to Madison, Wisconsin, to back public sector workers in their battle to defend their union rights, and saluted the 14 state Democratic senators who left Wisconsin to block a vote on the Bill. Mr Moore said:

America is not broke.

Contrary to what those in power would like you to believe so that you’ll give up your pension, cut your wages, and settle for the life your great-grandparents had, America is not broke. Not by a long shot. The country is awash in wealth and cash. It’s just that it’s not in your hands. It has been transferred, in the greatest heist in history, from the workers and consumers to the banks and the portfolios of the uber-rich.

Today just 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all Americans combined.

The rest of the speech is here.
