Why is it when Libs say less income and wealth inequality, Cons only hear that we want everyone to earn exactly the same money ?
Is this some republican illness that could be cured with Universal Health Care.....you know the "Free" kind? (They hear THAT too!)
YOUR protest made me miss lunch....now, give me yours.......

You have, perhaps inadvertently, asked a very good question. Liberals are only a small section of the very diverse and economically wise Democratic party, so instead of simply referring to "Libs" the more accurate question would use the all-inclusive words "Democratic party" or even "leading financial experts and the Democratic party" in the discussion of the GOP-creating massive chasm between the 1.5% of our nation's wealthiest few and the majority of working Americans.
If you can stomach the rightwing extremism, you might find your answer in the annual GOP planning sessions or their summit for setting up their Republican party platform that is often broadcast on C-SPAN. Somehow, the GOP got all turned around to the point of being FISCALLY INSANE, clinging to the always-fail "trickle on down upon the little people" corporate-colluding greed-rewarding "Reaganomics" (supply-side economics). The firing of PATCO (striking air traffic controllers union) that an Alzheimer's-afflicted Reagan was scripted and tricked into doing opened a devilish and destructive ERA OF CORPORATE GREED that told greedy-gut CEOs they could get rid of their well-paid full-time workers with benefits (a vested retirement plan, health care coverage, overtime pay) and hire permanent part-time or illegal workers with no benefits---more PROFITS for overpaid executives to divvy up. Once greed is turned on and fat-cats get used to all that "candy," getting the candy away from them by eliminating their GOP-granted DEREGULATION and their off-shore tax-dodging accounts in order to do right by American workers becomes more and more difficult over time. The Democrats try to have workers' salaries proportionate to executive-level salaries---especially since those workers are the ones who CREATE THE PROFIT that the greed-driven corporate CEOs hog all for themselves...but Republicans side with GREED and CORRUPTION (they remove all oversight, all consumer protections, and all systems of checks and balances) so the corporate greedy-guts tend to fund the campaigns of the GOP...and the beat-up-on-workers goes on.

There's always going to be income inequality that's a fact. Stop attacking private equity.

Unionized conductors on local trains in the Chicago area have six figure incomes. Liberals cannot be happy about that, since it is more than most of the passengers earn.

How much wealth do you want transferred from a middle class family in America.
They make $56,000 at its peak in 2008, now its more like $51,000, and are raising a family of 4.
Liberals usually make a stool in their pants when they try to answer that question.
Conservatives tend to live in a black and white world. That is why they believe anything that isn't pure liasse faire capitalsim = communism in their minds.

Why is it liberals fall for class warfare lie all the time? I have yet to hear a single liberal tell me why it is that someone making millions keeps anyone else down.
Maybe if you weren't so lazy Beaver you could pick up an extra shift to make a little extra money. All of liberal economic theories seem to be based on jealousy of people who are unwilling to work harder than they are.

We don't think you want to earn the same as everyone else we think, or we know, that the left wants to take from those who work for what they have and give to those who don't want to work.
