"Rook" has some thoughts on income equality.
Obama has stated recently that he and his progressive democrats want to fix "income inequality" whatever that means...Give us a break!
Obama and his progressive democrats have held up the Keystone Pipeline XL for five years and counting, which also holds up 500,000 jobs, not to mention the energy potential.
Obama and his progressive democrats enact Obamacare - without a single Republican vote - and impose on American workers a transformation of the workforce from a predominately full time 40 hour work week with benefits to a predominately part time work week without benefits as the new norm, thus destroying a union legacy that was over 100 years in the making.
Obama and his progressive democrats have imposed additional taxes and penalties on the middle class in the form of higher FICA withholding, Obamacare mandate fees and the depreciation of the dollar through "quantitative easing" (QE) and higher budget deficits.
Obama and his progressive democrats use the Federal Reserve to buy billions of dollars in stocks and bonds to spike the stock market to the highest levels in history, thus enriching the 1% while at the same time picking the pockets of the middle class.
Now Obama and his progressive democrats propose to "fix" the mess they have made? No! Their "income inequality" issue is nothing more than a blatant attempt to create another "shiny object" to divert attention from the Grand Illusionist's self-made mess that is becoming more apparent each day. The Grand Illusionist has pulled the same trick too many times. Even the "low information" voters are starting to see the truth of Obama's treacherous deceit and undeniable hypocrisy.
Go ahead Mister Obama and play that "income inequality" card; it won't trump your lost credibility and hypocrisy cards. You want to play that raggedy, dog-eared old Race card again? It won't help you this time...
