Asner is a legend in his mind only. And so much like other Democrats, particularly Obama, he must distort and lie about what's taking place. Oddly, If not for the very wealthy to finance television hows like Mary Tyler Moore, where he received perhaps his biggest boast of fame, few would recognize him today...how ironic. The rich who brought, and continue to bring, him fame is being tarnished through openly Marist/socialist rhetoric. It's just astonishingly arrogant and ignorant on the part of those who refuse to credit the wealthy people of America who have done and continue doing great things to keep her on top at all levels of society. Not many, if any, poor people hiring or building hospitals or establishing charities.
