This easily is the worst political video I've ever seen. Obviously Asner either doesn't understand our system or chooses to lie. I think it's the latter.
I have to ask Asner why those poor people are poor? Is there some virtue in being poor? And if 47% are paying no taxes and 10% are paying 95% of the taxes then why is that fair?Not that many years ago Asner voiced his opinion that we should reestablish trade relations with Cuba because the Cuban people are starving. Wait a minute, Ed. Cuba trades with every other nation in the world yet they're starving because of us not trading with them? Can you see the irony in this? Maybe it's not trade that's the problem but rather Communism (socialism). And you want that same system installed here?
