In another highlight from our launch, Van Jones dissects the lie that asking the wealthiest to pay a fair amount in taxes will hurt our country. Massive corporations and the super-rich make huge profits by utilizing American infrastructure, military prowess, and prestige.

In other words, those that "do well in America" should do "right by America."
