The president has powers to fight income inequality, President Obama argued in an interview broadcast Sunday, adding that Republicans in Congress have hobbled his efforts to do it. Appearing on ABC´s "This Week" program, Obama acknowledged that the wealthiest Americans have benefited disproportionately from the economic recovery of recent years. But he was quick to add that much of that trend is due to globalization, technology and, not least, the GOP´s opposition to his economic agenda all factors he suggested are beyond his control. "I think the president can stop it," Obama said, when asked about the growing income

Is there a federal agency that isn’t armed now?
Is the Dairy Compact packing?
Is the Egg Board too chicken to carry?
Head Start will probably have armed troops sooner or later.
How many Democratic bigwigs got filthy rich off the global warming and alternative energy racket? The idea that the ruling power is behind the Dem Party is for economic equality is a big joke. The Dems want the people poor and at the government teet, and do so through a cynical program of government handouts in the name of economic equality.
Judging by the way him and Moochelle are living the high life, I'd almost agreeing with him...
When Obama says the GOP House “fight[s] income inequality” he means he isn’t getting full socialism fast enough. Keep up the fight!
Pretty much the setting of the book "Hunger Games".
Oh I doubt that is the end goal he has in mind. You must think, “constitutional amendment” to really grasp the degree of change he wants to impose on this nation.
What a great idea: make the county with the most chance for upward mobility for the greatest number of people into a Third World country in which everyone is poorer than the poorest who are there now. This is Obama’s “hope and change.” His handlers hope that they will change the U.S. into a Third World county, but that they themselves will be the dictators living in the lap of luxury, corruption and power. That’s what history teaches about demagogues. Americans are too naive and distracted to realize what is happening to them.
What does he have in mind regarding a constitutional amendment?
The wealthy have gained in this depression because low interest rates have allowed them to leverage their stock purchases. When the Bernanke bubble bursts, they’ll be down here with the rest of us.
The media forget to mention that Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election for Obama and democrats in Congress. Obama’s EPA is implementing global warming crap and Obama is doing other unconstitutional executive orders.
The enemy of the American people is the democrat party. The democrat party controls
1. the news media
1. the news media

Democrat party controls all this and more but the media and many others say that everything is the Republicans fault even though rs have only a few votes majority in the House and thats it
Democrats want to makes slaves of all Americans, turn us into cattle with less rights than a cow or farm chicken for them to manipulate.
Let’s be realistic. Obama couldn’t wipe his ass without one of his handlers showing him how. He is an empty suit who knows how to be charismatic.
Isn’t this what an opposition party suppose to do?
When Republicans were in charge the Democrats did not give an inch. They made the Republican compromise so much you would have thought the Democrats were still in power.
If this administration does not get one more piece of legislation passed I will be happy and the nation will be better off because of it.
Ending income inequality...no more Martha’s Vinyard(sp) for Obama to vacay at cause the wealthy won’t have the wealth to afford it.
The hippies had the answer here. As I recall, it involved a government guarenteed annual income for all with confiscatory taxes on those earning more.
"And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach Pussy!"
It is high time our ball-less Republican Eunichs in the House and Senate realize there is no peril in confronting this poser.
We don’t need less “inequality” we need more people getting wealthy (as in more than just those who are currently wealthy).
To respond to the absurd logic of combating “inequality” or “income gaps”, I defer to the Lady Thatcher:
Marxism 2013! (Pay attention you who label Putin a ‘Communist’!)
