Al Franken: Gift of living in America comes with responsibilities

Democrats believe that all Americans have been given an incredible gift, living in America. And with that gift comes certain responsibilities. That applies especially to those who have been fortunate enough to find themselves at the top of our income pyramid. No American gets rich on his or her own. Every one of us rich people stands on the shoulders of people who stood on the shoulders of people who stood on the shoulders of people who stood on the necks of Native Americans.

Our Republican friends in Congress had opposed Clinton's tax increase on the top 1%. They had predicted it would lead to a recession, but instead it had been followed by 8 fat years.
