Movin’ On Up (or, For the Rest of Us, Down)

September 25th, 2010

Inspired by The Super Rich Get Richer, Everyone Else Gets Poorer, and the Democrats Punt (Robert Reich, Huffington Post 9/24/10) and Rachel’s report below.

“We’re movin’ on up
To a deluxe apartment in the sky
We’re movin’ on up
To the East side.
We’ve finally got  piece of the pie.”
theme song from The Jeffersons

Most Americans would have knowing

That our economic pie has been growing.

Strange, that is, but I wonder why

Fewer and fewer are getting a piece of that pie?

Could it be by deliberate design

Of those who have been doing just fine?

The richest 10% are doing fantastic

And now are even more enthusiastic.

But while they’re movin’ to deluxe mansions across town,

The rest of us are either treading water, or movin’ down.


Here’s Rachel’s 9/24/10 “movin’ on up” report on the Koch Brothers.

Here’s your theme music, The Jeffersons  theme song.
