But they're not finished yet. Right now the Roundtable's fighting for more air pollution; more bank crimes, fiscal crises, and BP oil spills; and more Americans without health insurance.

Seniors are the kulaks of the CEO revolution.

If the CEOs of the Business Roundtable are corporate America's Stalinists, to them the elderly are kulaks, those peasants who saved enough to buy a farm -- and whose existence became an ideological offense. When working Americans approach retirement age, they see them as Enemies of the People.

The CEOs of the Business Roundtable claim the government can't afford to redeem its Medicare and Social Security pledges. The government owes more than a trillion dollars to banks and mutual funds, and much of that debt is held by people like the CEOs of the Business Roundtable.

If they don't think the U.S. can afford to keep its commitments anymore -- if they want a United States of America that welshes on its debts -- that would be a good place to start. But for the wealthy, pampered and narcissistic CEOs of the Business Roundtable, sacrifice is always for someone else. They have luxurious lives to maintain -- and a revolution to lead.
