Harkin: Republicans Acting Like We're Broke By Focusing On Budget Cuts

SEN. TOM HARKIN (D-IOWA): When you hear the Republicans talk, Ed, about we got to cut this, we've got to cut that, we got to cut this, it's almost like they're saying we're poor; the United States, we're poor, we're broke. The fact is, Ed, we're the richest nation in the history of the world, we are the richest nation today. We have the highest per capita income of any industrialized country. So, you have to ask the question, if we're so rich why are we so broke? The reason is, is we have a misallocation of money, of capital. Too much has gone into fewer and fewer hands and the large corporations. The Republicans want to keep that going. (The Ed Show, February 11, 2013)
