Skip to comments.Democrats to push income inequality as top issue of 2014. Winning tactic?
Posted on 01/07/2014 7:36:59 PM PST by Innovative
President Obama, meanwhile, will carry the torch further on Jan. 28, when hell use his State of the Union address to echo a pre-Christmas speech in which he declared that income inequality and declining social mobility are the defining challenge of our time.

No. Obamacare will nag them all year, big time!
The communists will be pimping ANYTHING but their failed ObamaCare scheme. That want that mess to go away. The GOP needs to keep pushing the failure of ObamaCare.
They think the American people will believe any slogan — but Obamacare made people a little more skeptical of Obama’s and the Dems’ lies.
Much of the electorate will vote for people who promise to give them free sh$!t.
Yes, let’s make all salaries the same from burger flipper to neurosurgeon! Just like in Cuba, China, and the USSR.
I laughed at how stupid the “war on women” was.
This is just the kind of thing the stupid public will eat up.
Well, when you can’t create jobs, just make everyone angry at each other and envious of each other. Democrats war on the blue collar workers/Middle class?
In spite of the hopeless and hapless “efforts” (if any) of the Republican Party, Obama’s gift to them will keep giving all year - and, with a final SUPRISE when the employer mandate kicks in and employers start their 2015 sign-up process - in late October, 2014!
With any luck, his administration will put a “laser focus” on it.
Which reminds me - how is it that this unemployment benefit “emergency” can exist in the booming economy that Obama’s efforts have created?
Ain’t going to happen until after the elections. The Dems aren’t that dumb.
“Much of the electorate will vote for people who promise to give them free sh$!t.”
Absolutely. Never mind that the proposition is impossible; But when the results cannot be measured, it’s kind of a double-winning strategy for the LIVs. They’ll eat it up. I don’t think Republicans have much to rest on; they’ll get some mileage out of bashing 0care, but I’m thinking that even if this horrible act impacts their lives really negatively, hurts them, makes their lives more difficult, I would bet you $1 that the Dems will figure out a way to burnish their own image as the only ones who can carry it through to utopian perfection. And the evil Republicans, you know, the worst ones of which want to rip the thing out by its roots and the barely tolerable ones just want to delay, delay...the idiots will vote the Dems in again. Indeed, if the GOP takes both houses (a better than 50% chance but not by much, IMO) the electorate will figure out that they had better get a Dem in as pres just for balance.
But I suck at prediction, so there’s that.
I wonder if anybody will notice that the democrats pushing this all make a lot of money?
Instead of encouraging self sufficiency and success, Obama wants to make and keep people dependent on the government.
It reminded me of Stalin’s chicken — when I searched to post the story, found it was posted on FR in July 2013 by SoFloFreeper.

Winning because they’ll never be able to do it, and then they can blame the failure on those evil Republicans in order to keep their losses down in 2014.
Not if their true motives are revealed
The liberal “solution” of taking money from those they consider well off and giving it to those they consider not as well off does NOTHING to improve the income of the less well off. It’s not “income” as it relates to a job - it’s just a handout.
Incomes are raised when good jobs are available and taxes are lower. Liberals know nothing about either.
All the Republicans need to say:
“Why do we even need unemployment extension when we were promised EMPLOYMENT? Maybe our President doesn’t understand that.”
Hopefully Republicans will remember this, articulate the facts well, and will not be afraid to challenge any Democrat-Socialist who dares use "income inequality" to promote their idealistic totalitarian/statist objectives.
No doubt in my mind it’s a winning tactic.
Is this another attempt by The Rats to get MORE people on Un-Employment????????????????????
And....the strongest proponents of radical abortion techniques (and abortion in general) have already been born.
Now that he has ‘fixed’ health care he will ‘fix’ income equality!
I like it!
Obama knows how much you should make. And if you happen to get rich, Obama knows better than you what to do with your money. (Like pay for Obamacare~!)
MORE GOVERNMENT PLEASE!
>> Much of the electorate will vote for people who promise to give them free sh$!t.
They will vote for those who alleviate their fears... notwithstanding reality.
This is unamerican and total Bu11 $hit.
The Democrats will have to admit that recovery was a failure.
It’s as fake as their other concerns.
Libs party with the wealthy in Hollywood.
Definition of ‘Income Inequality’ = “its just not fair”
The unequal distribution of household or individual income across the various participants in an economy. Income inequality is often presented as the percentage of income to a percentage of population. For example, a statistic may indicate that 70% of a country’s income is controlled by 20% of that country’s residents.
It is often associated with the idea of income “fairness”. It is generally considered “unfair” if the rich have a disproportionally larger portion of a country’s income compared to their population.
Yes, in lock step with the new strategy of the Left, the Leftist fringe academic organizations have this week started sending out U.S. mail-delivered pseudo surveys filled with questions claiming disparities in income and how “unfair” that is and then asking for money to help them spread their politically-driven complaint du jour.
Yeah, so lets start with congressional and presidential pay.
All congressional pay should be reduced to 38K/year, no benefits, no pension. Of course 90% of them aren’t even worth the minimum wage.
Presidential pay should be capped at 50k/year, no benefits, no pension.
“Just part of class warfare he had been pushing for the last 5 years. If he can’t get the “rich” to voluntarily distribute the wealth, then he’ll start a war to take it from them.
That’s a great photo ..... even w/o the added grafix, his arrogance shines forth like the Pharos lighthouse of antiquity, one of the ancient Seven Wonders.
That's why Karl Marx loved Lincoln.
That, and using racism and cries of "Uncle Tom!" and "Oreo!" and "Tan Man!" to inoculate ignorant inner-city blacks against any sort of political education. Especially education about what liberals and Fabians have been up to for 110 years.
