Kevin Clarke, at America, on a new study that shows just how bad income inequality has gotten in America in the past thirty years. I invite my liberal friends to think twice before talking about the good ole' Clinton years, and Mr. Obama, too, has some explaining to do. Maybe, instead of running for re-election as if Planned Parenthood was his running mate, he might have campaigned on a platform of doing something about the fact that we are back to 1928 levels of income inequality. Now, he brings the subject up when his political capital is not exactly at its zenith.
