Michael Moore Thinks Wealthy People's Money Is A 'Natural Resource' And Should Be Shared

From an interview Moore did yesterday with GritTV about the Wisconsin protests.

“We’re not broke.  This country is not broke.  The state of Wisconsin is not broke.  There is a ton of cash.  Trillions of dollars of it.  But it is a finite amount.  What’s happened is we’ve allowed a vast majority of that cash to be concentrate in the hands of just a few people.  And they’re not circulating that cash.  They’re sitting on the money, they’re using it for their own — they’re putting it someplace else with no interest in helping you with your life, with that money. We’ve allowed them to take that. That’s not theirs, that’s a national resource, that’s ours. We all have this — we all benefit from this or we all suffer as a result of not having it.”

Shorter version: He wants higher taxes on the rich.  Moore starts at the 6:09 mark.
