    From Paul Blumenthal..paulblumenthal@huffingtonpost.com

    "According to a review of tax documents from 2007 through 2011, Peterson has personally contributed at least $458 million to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation to cast Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and government spending as in a state of crisis, in desperate need of dramatic cuts."
    That's "at least".

    According to the capitalist bible, Forbes:

    "By sitting on their growing investments, the richest five Americans made almost $7 billion each in one year. That's $3,500,000.00 per hour."

    That's more in one hour than 99% will earn in a lifetime.
    Repeat, more in one hour than most will earn in forty years of going to work every day for their entire lives.
