America For Sale | Follow The Money

According to the Senator Sanders, the six heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune own more wealth than the bottom 30 percent of Americans. Today, the top one percent own 40 percent of all wealth, while the bottom sixty percent owns less than 2 percent. Incredibly, the bottom 40 percent of all Americans own just 0.3 percent of the wealth of the country.

Senator Sanders describes an American economy which has more wealth and income inequality than at any time since the 1920s. The Senator says, "the wealthiest 400 individuals own more wealth than the bottom half of America - 150 million people." And what are they doing with all of that that money?
