Speaking to Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman, liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore had a simple message for everyone who’s been put out by the bad economy in America today.
“The majority of Americans are really upset at Wall Street,” Moore said. “Millions of Americans have lost their homes or are facing foreclosure right now. 50 million do not have health insurance. 14 million officially are unemployed, but it’s probably up in the 20 million plus that are actually unemployed. So, you’ve already got an army of Americans just waiting for somebody to do something, and the something has started.”
