    During Republican administrations, which since Reagan have been cutting taxes on the rich and shifting burdens to the poor, the gap between rich and poor increase.
    Right now, we have a gap comparable to banana republics. Historians agree that this is a bad thing — if you believe in opportunity for all.
    There are several different definitions of a good economy. Lately some have overdepended on a good stock market. A more sensible definition would be whether EVERYONE gets ahead, not just the tiny percentage who are already rich. And by that definition, we are doing very poorly indeed.

    but but Obama taxed them so as to save jobs and make the USA better. Obama told me the evil rich will pay for my Obamaphone…

    Invested in JOBS? What jobs? It’s being invested in vacation homes, lawyers, payoffs to Congress, GOP election year PACs – but not jobs. And the middle class did see their incomes rise during the Clinton presidency, but that ended under Bush, thanks to the idiotic tax cuts that preceded the tanking economy after 911. The rich continued to get richer during those Bush years, but job creation was anemic. Then came the Bush Depression of 2008, when he bailed out the rich but nobody else; the rest of us investors lost a third of our net worth, but the 1% walked on our backs all the way to the bank.

    Yes, and the Democrat answer is “More government regulation! That will fix everything!”

    The problem with the evil rich is that as the gap gets wider the definition shifts, at the rate we are going if you have a job your the “evil rich” and need to be taxed senseless.

    Income gap is greatest since the 1920s. (And let’s not forget what happened at the end of the 1920s It’s not too late to restore Glass-Steagall.) Not saying rich people are evil, but I will say that poor people can become desperate. This has already happened in Jamaica, for example: those in gated communities had better decide whether they are keeping the riff-raff out, or fencing themselves in.

    but but Obamacare is a job bill that lets us be poets according to the old lady in the house who might have finally gotten around to reading it now that it is passed. the unemployment bill is extended, that is a job bill. And we have been having summers of recovery ever since Obama spent all that stimulus money on magic green jobs. So in Obama’s mind the evil rich have been punished and the job numbers are just great. Everyone should have 2 or 3 jobs working only 20 hours at each.

    Are we talking about the same Ronald Reagan who raised the debt ceiling eighteen times? Under whom government spending hit 22.4% of the GDP? Who saw the IRS reach a record number of workers?
    The modern-day GOP would run the REAL Ronald Reagan out of Washington on a rail before they ever let him see a Republican primary. They prefer to worship their imaginary version of him, who single-handedly beat up the Soviets, only ever cut taxes, and strangled the government into submission.

    Frank Flynn? What did he do? No one one knows what you are talking about, as usual.

    @Dycel

    Heard Current 2012 report found top 1% controlled /received 20% of all capital generated in 2012?
    Also heard wages for the middle class dropped by 1.4% in 2012.
    The rich get richer and the poor get to pay for it.

    And who has been President for the last four and a half years.

    It’s more likely the 1% invest their money in Treasury bills, bonds, and notes in order to draw interest from the taxes paid by the middle class.
