Dem Congressman Warns Of "Mob Scenes" Without "Equity In Society"

Congressman Jim McDermott (D-Washington) warns the U.S. could turn into a scene from Les Misérables without a 'we' mentality in an interview with C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" on Tuesday.

McDERMOTT: This whole society is gradually changing in response to what’s going on. Now, we’re in a very difficult period right now, because we have a lot of people who suddenly think it’s all about me. And it isn’t about me; it’s about we. If we don’t take care of one another, and we say everybody’s on their own, then it will simply fall apart as a society: become a mob scene, as it was in Paris if you go see Les Misérables. You can see what the country can become, if you don’t have equity in the society. I don’t want that. I want people to be able to have a peaceful life. And I think our system will work.
