America : case 1% of 1%

Meet the 0.01 Percent: War Profiteers.

 War industry CEOs make tens of millions of dollars a year, putting them in the top 0.01 percent of income earners in the U.S. 
 •Northrop Grumman CEO Wes Bush made $22.84 million last year. 
• Lockheed Martin CEO Robert Stevens made $21.89 million. 
• Boeing CEO James McNerney: $19.4 million. 

 These guys use their corporations' massive lobbying dollars to keep their job-killing gravy train rolling. Last year, their companies spent a whopping $46 million on lobbying, corrupting our politics and ensuring that their bank accounts continue to fatten at our expense. These executives are some of the main reasons why we're wasting so much on war instead of rebuilding our own nation here at home. Help us fight their propaganda campaign to protect their profits. Use our list to share this video with your local Occupy group and encourage them to show it at their events: http://warcosts.com/1percent 

 CORRECTION: Lockheed Martin's CEO is Robert Stevens. The video refers to him as "Martin Stevens" which is incorrect.
