War on Greed: Starring Henry Kravis and his Homes
Henry Kravis is a billionaire, the 57th richest person in America. He acquired this wealth by purchasing public companies with borrowed money. To pay off the debt, he cuts benefits at the company, sells its assets, and lays off employees. This get-rich-quick scheme made him $450 million last year. Meanwhile, his tax rate is lower than teachers, firemen, nurses, even his own cleaning staff! In a future society, this type of affluent, wasteful, arrogant living should be as revolting to our senses as animal or child abuse. It is to me today, and it's time all of us started a WAR ON GREED.
