Deval: Abby, thanks for agreeing to meet. While I was away trying to get corporations over seas to invest in Massachusetts I heard some very disturbing news.
Abby: I know about your concerns about the Marlbough situation, but we really needed to consolidate.
Deval: We’ll get to that, but what happened that troubled me the most was the announcement that now:
the top 400 richest americans now have more wealth then 50% of the citizens of our entire county!
Do you understand what that means? 400 people own more then 150 million. And you, according to Forbes magazine, are one of those 400. I think you are worth $13 billion.
Abby: but i worked for that.
Deval: Alot of middle and working class people want to work hard also, but folks like you won’t create jobs. We can’t sustain a society where folks like you horde your money and don’t invest jobs, putting people to work.
Abby: Lets talk about Marlbough.
