The Republican-caused income gap

Not that the Democrats are innocent in all this, but our massive income gap lies primarily at the feet of the party of big business.

A huge share of the nation’s economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244.

Anyone who denies that an ever-widening income gap somehow isn’t a problem is an ideological chump. Weaken the middle class and you weaken the economy. Thanks Reagan!

Just take a look at the facts. The rich are getting richer while the poor get poorer.

Ooo! I know, I know! Let’s give the rich more tax breaks! That will fix things right up! Ya know. If you ignore facts and junk.
