    You're the one who repeatedly presents the income gap as a problem all by itself, and call it a debate-ender. Sorry, but it's not, your weird diversion into tax policy notwithstanding.

    That was the plan in the first place. Obama and progressives want individuals to be government reliant because it gives progressives the power to do anything they want. If people want to eat they will have to support and adhere to the progressive ideology.

    In the progressive mind - the United States utopia is government playing the role of "mommy and daddy" and the rest of us are children and we need to do was we're told, and that is exactly the environment they're setting up here.... Progressives have never wanted individualism or self reliance - they don't believe in those ideas.

    The progressive goal is to dictate outcomes - outcomes which will ensure they hold power by making sure everyone depends on them for survival.

    Why are so surprised at the level of poverty in the USA?

    TOP 400 inome earners in the USA take home over 300 million dollars EACH every year - and pay abotu 18% tax

    So the Plutocratic class in the USA has increased its asset and income wealth, even over the recent Global Financial Crisis.

    The USA may well be the richest single nation on the planet (note: US debt is also the highest), but it certainly has a welath distribution problem.

    USA spends about $8000 per capita each year on Health care (more than double the next OECD nation) and yet its corporately run health scam system is ranked 47th in the world

    he fascist corporate US tyranny is great for a select few at the top - f*c* the rest - I wonder what Christ would say if you walked the city streets of America today?

    Of course these numbers were known before the election however our partisan MSM just had to hold them back for a couple weeks.

    I think it's funny how progressives actually believe Obama gives a rats ass about them yet here he is knowing how much of a failure his policies are yet he runs for reelection???

    If that tool really did care about people he would have never ran for a second term..... No that clown likes playing a real life version of the Sims.

    You do realize there isn't a set amount of wealth in this nation?? Or to explain it in 3rd grade logic to you - our economy is not like a bag of M&M's split between the school bully and the nerd, were some get 15 and others get 3 - our economy is like an M&M factory, we can produce as many as we want, just as long as we know how to produce them and produce them with our own individual energy.

    Wealth is not finite it is infinite. So I really don't see how the wealthy have any effect on your life.

    Hell, you're stealing from the wealthy - they owe you nothing.

    almost fell of my chair

    (the next thing Mr Nick will be saying is that the US is a free democracy and its economic system is a free market capitalist system - obviously Mr Nick is a stand up comedian)

    So your "plan" to end poverty is to tax the top 400 people enough to pay for supporting the bottom 40,000,000? Who needs a job (or the education to get one) if the gov't will just give you the benefits of a job without all of that darned effort? USA, USA, USA...

    You're reading in too much. I've never used those words. Never.

    However, it is a factor and a large one.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I'm not reading anything into anything.

    I said it wasn't meaningful in and of itself, nor was it a debate-ender; you insisted it was:

    Not for the first time, either.
