Al Jazeera English, posted this documentary today about wealth inequality in America. The highlight of the clip above is Congressman Paul Ryan being asked if his budget plan isn't undemocratic because the majority of Americans don't like it. He bolts from the reporter and tells her, her question is "rude."

Al Jazeera English does some good work. The piece also features economist Jeffrey Sachs stating flatly, "The rich not only became richer they became politically more powerful."
