My organization, American Family Voices, is releasing a new video that we think will make you laugh about these fattest of fat cats and their sad, sad lives.
The sense of grievance in these billionaire corporate executives, who pay less in taxes than in any industrialized in the country, and have more power and privilege than any tiny group of people in American history, is truly astonishing.

Pity the poor billionaires, who live in such fear over those they exploit.
