We’re all born equal. What you choose to do with that equality is up to you.
The only thing worse than inequality is the result of what government does to fix it.
Inequality isn’t even the problem. Poverty isn’t the problem. The culture of dependency is the problem, sustained by the fact that it is human nature to lose one’s dignity when accepting something for nothing.
So...is Obama and Oprah going to be donating their entire income to the public treasury chest anytime soon...and pay back all those expensive vacations he has taken over the years...at this point, anything that comes out of the “lil fuhrer’s” mouth no one is believing anymore...so keep talking and playing make believe - Obama!

WIPE OUT HALF OF THE KENNEDY EMPIRE... and stop crushing the middle class... it will never happen because reich and those communists like him are part of the elite and the elite get to keep their wealth and power and we serfs get to slave for the king and his court.

The Party of Envy.
If someone could wave a magic wand and remove envy from the face of the earth, the democrats would never win another election because the entire basis of their ideology would be gone.
No. He must maintain the inequality of result, with which to continue justifying a fat salary for his services redistributing said property.
There are also societal transfers of wealth that are not counted as income for the lower earners. My secretary and I both had two sons about the same ages. She was single (divorced) and earned perhaps 40K a year. Her sons were slightly above average students. When they applied for college both of them were offered full rides at private Catholic colleges. They each accepted one offer and got a four year education including room and board free. My wife and I are both lawyers and were not eligible for financial aid based upon our income. One of our sons was a National Merit finalist and the other was slightly above average. Fortunately we had saved for years and were able to put both our sons through similar schools at a cost of about 40K each per year. It cost us 320K in after-tax savings to do this. None of my secretary’s gain nor our diminished savings appears on a tax return. Nor does it appear in any statistics cited by the income inequality lefties.
