Is Barack Obama Really Make Income Inequality a Main Topic at SOTU Address When it Has Increased Under his Presidency? Income Gap Widened Under Obama
Like everything Barack Obama has touched or claims he wants to make better, has become worse under his presidency …
The Divider in Chief Barack Obama is back to his old games of blaming the rich for the evils of society. What else is Obama going to do when he is an abject failure who has only made matters worse since he has been in office? Obama rails about income inequality and that it is the worse problem of out time, yet he is responsible for making the gap wider. From the president who makes class warfare part of his daily agenda and who claims he is for the common man, while demonizing the rich, Barack Obama has widened the income gap during his presidency turning the gap into a canyon.

Income inequality — the gap between the rich and poor — is an issue U.S. presidents of both parties have spoken of for years.
President Clinton touted, toward the end of his term, that wages were rising “at all income levels” for the first time in decades. President George W. Bush, toward the end of his, pondered the best way to respond to income inequality, noting some policies “lift people up” and some “tear others down.”
But perhaps no president has hammered the issue as emphatically as President Obama.
In his 2012 State of the Union address, Obama said: “The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive. No challenge is more urgent. No debate is more important. We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”
But a look back shows that income inequality has grown, not shrunk, under the current president.
“All told, income inequality has tended to get worse under President Obama,” American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks said.
According to a recent FOX News poll, Barack Obama polls miserably on doing his job on the issue of income inequality. 52% disapprove with how Obama has handled income inequality and only 39% approve. So with Obama failing at an issue he claims to care about, how does he even have the audacity to bring the issue up at the State of the Union Address? Obama’s economic policies have made things worse for those lower income earners, while he has made the Wall Street fat cats richer. Hmm, but I thought Obama hated the rich? Obama has falsely propped up the stock markets thanks to the fed’s quantitative easing which only made the top 5% and 1% more and more money. It is those folks who can afford to take risks in the markets. However, for the average people who Obama claims to care about and tries to talk a good game, according to the recent Fox poll, 74% still feel like the country is in a recession. But don’t worry America, Obama has the answer to fixing income inequality … raising the minimum wage. Good grief, really! With so many people unemployed or underemployed, with so many Americans on food stamps and with so many people having just given up and not even in the labor force, why wouldn’t the gap be larger? When a Democrat party sets out to create a government dependent class of people, why is it that much of a surprise that the gap widens? Recessions affect the middle and lower classes the most.
Using tax-return data from the IRS, Saez has built extensive income-distribution datasets going back 100 years. He defines “income” as pre-tax cash market income — wages and salaries; dividends, interest, rent and other returns on invested capital; business profits; and realized capital gains. He excludes Social Security payments, unemployment benefits and other government transfer payments, which are more substantial today than before the Great Depression.
In 1928, the top 1% of families received 23.9% of all pretax income, while the bottom 90% received 50.7%. But the Depression and World War II dramatically reshaped the nation’s income distribution: By 1944 the top 1%’s share was down to 11.3%, while the bottom 90% were receiving 67.5%, levels that would remain more or less constant for the next three decades.
But starting in the mid- to late 1970s, the uppermost tier’s income share began rising dramatically, while that of the bottom 90% started to fall. The top 1% took heavy hits from the dot-com crash and the Great Recession but recovered fairly quickly: Saez’s preliminary estimates for 2012 (which will be updated next month) have that group receiving nearly 22.5% of all pretax income, while the bottom 90%’s share is below 50% for the first time ever (49.6%, to be precise).
FOX News Poll: Obamacare Hits Record Lows, Obama’s Handling of Economy, Immigration, Federal Debt, Immigration and Income Inequality Poll Poor as Well
Hey America, How’s that “Hopey-Changey” thing working out for you?
The more that Americans learn and have to deal with Obamacare, the more they hate it. According to a recent Fox News poll, a record number of Americans oppose Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, the not-so Affordable Healthcare Act. Fifty-nine percent now oppose Obamacare and a record low of 38% now support it. Obamacare in the eyes of the American people is not getting better, it is getting worse. To quote former Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “we have to pass the bill in order to find out what is in it” and the American people loath what’s in Obamacare. Americans are learning that were not just lied to by Barack Obama regarding Obamacare, they are learning that they were fed nothing but BS and Obamacare is a complete disaster in policy, not just implementation.
Hmm … wasn’t Obamacare created to sign up the so-called 50 million uninsured in America? Where are all the people?
A record high number of voters now oppose the 2010 Affordable Care Act and a record low number supports it, according to the latest Fox News poll.
In addition, a majority thinks the new law will increase their health care costs, while few think it will improve their quality of care.
The new poll finds 59 percent of voters oppose the health care law, up from 55 percent who opposed it six months ago (June 2013). The increase in opposition comes from both independents and Democrats.
Nearly a third of Democrats — 30 percent — oppose the law, up from 22 percent in June.
Opposition among independents went from 53 percent to 64 percent today.
The LEFT will be quick to say, well that’s a FOX News poll, what would you expect. Oh contraire mon frère … the RCP average polling on Obamacare has 37.6% For and 54.5% Against. It would appear that the Fox poll is right in line.
But it is not just healthcare that Obama is having problems with. Accross the boar on the major issues of the day, Barack Obama is a complete failure. It is really too bad that presidents do not have to face recall elections.
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing on the following issues? (All polling data can be read HERE)
- Income inequality: 39% Approval - 52% Disapprove - 9% Don’t Know
- The economy: 38% Approve - 59% Disapprove - 3% Don’t Know

Gallup: 65% of Americans Dissatisfied With the Size and Power of the Federal Government … Americans Fed Up with Obama and Big Govt Liberalism
According to the most recent Gallup poll, not only are an overwhelming number of Americans dissatisfied with how the US federal government works, they are also extremely dissatisfied with the size and the power of the government as well. Two-thirds of Americans, or 66%, are unhappy with the size and power of the federal government. This is a direct repudiation of liberalism and Nanny state, Big government under Barack Obama. No greater disapproval of the people of Big government and federal powers run amok are scene by the very existence of Obamacare, its failed roll-out and failed promises. Of course there is also the IRS and NSA scandals that Americans see as the feds having far too much power as well.
Sixty-five percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the nation’s system of government and how well it works, the highest percentage in Gallup’s trend since 2001. Dissatisfaction is up five points since last year, and has edged above the previous high from 2012 (64%).
One reason Americans are dissatisfied with how the government system is working is that they believe it is too big and powerful. Two-thirds of Americans (66%) are unhappy with the size and power of the federal government. These views potentially hamper President Barack Obama’s ability to propose large-scale government solutions in his State of the Union speech next week. However, this problem is not a new one for the president. Roughly two-thirds of Americans have expressed this view consistently since at least 2011, after the measure jumped a full 10 points between 2008 and 2011.
I doubt whether Americans want a different form of government like a monarchy or socialism, what they want is a competent and effective Republic in the manner in how Our Founding Father’s envisioned. Americans do not want an elitist government class who are out of touch with the people. As stated at The Politico, 53% of registered voters in a Quinnipiac poll do not believe that the Barack Obama administration has been competent in general.
American voters give President Obama a negative 40 – 54 percent approval rating, compared to 41 – 53 percent January 8, and 38 – 57 percent December 10, indications that his plunge has leveled off.
But voters give Obama his lowest grades for their top priorities:
Negative 39 – 56 percent for his handling of the economy;
Negative 36 – 59 percent for his handling of healthcare;
Positive 48 – 41 percent for handling terrorism;
Negative 40 – 49 percent for foreign policy;
Negative 39 – 47 percent for handling Iran.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2014 … A Dream that All Can Embrace … “Will One Day Live in a Nation Where They Will not be Judged by the Color of their Skin but by the Content of their Character”
MARTIN LUTHER LING JR. DAY – 2014.
On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day let us all reflect on “The Dream” and the fact that we as a Nation have come a long way since the 1960′s. We are a much better country for it. However, that does not mean that we do not still have more to do and will most likely always will. MLK Jr’s message goes out to all people, not just one message to blacks or another to whites. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, do not let others interpret that dream for you. Do not let those with an agenda that is far from “The Dream” to make you feel less or call you something that you are not. Martin Luther King Jr. was correct, it is never about the color of one’s skin, it is always about the content of one’s character. Always! That means the character of those who would lie to you or highjack “The Dream” for their own purposes. Those who are divisive and keep races at each other do a disservice to Martin Luther King, Jr.
August 28, 1963
Full text of MLK Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech can be read here.
I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
From CNN comes the unheard tapes from MLK Jr. circa 1960. Martin Luther King Jr. discusses the peaceful Civil Rights movement and called the movement represents struggle on the highest level of dignity and discipline.
From FOX News: On MLK Day – let’s celebrate all that has changed in 50 years.
On Sunday, Georgia Congressman John Lewis, the last surviving speaker from the 1963 March, spoke to that startling reality:
“I feel more than lucky but very blessed to be able to stand here 50 years later and to see the progress we have made,” Lewis said. “And just to see the changes have occurred. If someone had told me 50 years ago that an African-American would be in the White House as the president, I probably would have said ‘You’re crazy. You are out of your mind. You don’t know what you’re talking about.’ The country is a different country, and we’re better people.”
In fact, outstanding African-Americans have broken through doors previously closed to all people of color in the past 50 years.
In government, we have had two black Supreme Court Justices, several Cabinet secretaries, two governors, six senators and dozens of people in Congress. We have a black president twice elected by the Americans people – who, as many have noted, could have been owned by our first 16 presidents as property.
The following VIDEO has excepts from from many different MLK speeches and this interview and has some incredibly interesting comments that all should take a listen to. What many do not understand is that MLK’s words do not just speak to the black Civil Rights movement. They speak to everyone.
- “We are in a separate phase where we are seeking genuine equality. Where we are dealing with hard economic and social issues.”
- Its more easy to integrate a lunch counter than it is guarantee an annual income. [...] It’s easier to integrate a bus than it is to get a program that will force a government to put billions of dollars to ending slums.”
- “I weight the criticisms that I would get. I thought about even the fact that some Negros would not understand. And some respectable Negro Leaders who are more concerned about being invited to the White House than invited to the cause of justice would be against me.”
Unlike others, I do not begin to speak for Martin Luther King Jr. and how he would act or what he would say in today’s world. So many are quick to say that he would be for increasing the minimum wage because he spoke of the Poor People’s Campaign which was a multiracial effort to address poverty in the nation by demanding a $30 billion antipoverty package, including full employment and the annual construction of 500,000 affordable residences. I don’t think so. The US has had a ‘War on Poverty’ since 1964 and the LBJ years. However, 50 years later it has been a failure.
I believe that Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of his word and wanted true equality for his people. I do not believe that he wanted them back on the plantation and subject to a life of dependency on welfare programs. True equality does not come from a hand out, it comes from a hand up. Equality does not come from being forced to live in government housing. Equality comes from a strong family unit, an education, morality, a want and desire to get ahead and believing in something greater than yourself. The US has spent trillions in the War on Poverty and has gotten no where. The welfare state has been a disaster for “The Dream”. Sorry, I do not believe for one second that MLK’s “DREAM” had the notion that blacks would become part of a voting block and completely dependent upon the government. JMO.
Add another accomplishment to Barack Obama … Hardly ‘Hope and Change’ for the Youth.
The Youth Misery Index hits all-time high under Barack Obama. In 2009 when Obama took office, the YMI was at m 83.5; however, has skyrocketed to 98.6 in 2013. This represents an 18.1% increase since Obama took office. But Obama claims he is for the youth of America and the youth continue foolishly vote for him in large numbers. The index is calculated by adding youth unemployment and average college loan debt figures with each person’s share of the national debt. And before Obama and his minions blame Bush, when President George Bush left office in 2008, the index was 69.3.
A Youth Misery Index that measures young Americans’ woes has skyrocketed under President Barack Obama and hit an all-time high.
The index, released Wednesday, was calculated by adding youth unemployment and average college loan debt figures with each person’s share of the national debt. While it has steadily grown over the decades, under Obama the figure has shot up dramatically, from 83.5 in 2009 to 98.6 in 2013.
The index has increased by 18.1 percent since Obama took office, the highest increase under any president, making Obama the worst president for youth economic opportunity, according to the nonprofit that released the figure.
“Young people are suffering under this economy,” said Ashley Pratte, program officer for Young America’s Foundation, which developed the index and calculates it annually using federal statistics. “They’re still living in their parent’s basements, unable to find full-time jobs that pay them what they need in order to pay back their debt.”
Youth unemployment in 2013 was 16.3 percent, and student loan debt came in at a record-breaking average of $29,400 last year, the foundation points out; what’s more, each person’s share of the roughly $17 trillion dollar national debt stands at its highest level ever: $52,948.

Sorry, but what Obama has done to the youth of America should be considered a crime … Can he be charged with child abuse? How about Generational theft?

Nevada DMV Says 75% of Illegals Fail Test For Driver Authorization Card … Giving Undocumentated Aliens Documents, UNREAL!!!
What is wrong with the following statement, Illegals failing tests to receive legal drivers authorization cared.
According to the Nevada DMV, about 75% of illegal immigrants, undocumented aliens, people in the United States illegally, have failed the written test needed for a drivers authorization card offered to provide driving privileges to those individuals in the United States illegally. WHAT!!! So not only do we have states that are so misguided that they would provide “ILLEGALS” access to driving privileges that are supposed to be afforded to citizens of the United States, when they do … THE ILLEGALS FAIL. The DMS did not mention how many fail the driving exam. Hmm, I wounder why? Hundreds of illegals swamped DMV offices to get this card, forcing actual citizens of the United States to be turned away. Are the written exams in English or Spanish?
Why are we making it easier for illegals to be in the United States, rather than harder? How insane have we become? We have people that are in the country illegally, but giving them a document stating they can legally drive. Just another head-shaking moment.
They estimate 75 percent of applicants have failed the written test needed for the card under a new law that made the state the 11th nationally to offer driving privileges to people in the country illegally. The cards became available Thursday.
Applicants must correctly answer 80 percent of 50 questions to pass the test. They also are required to pass a driving exam to receive cards. The failure rate on the driving test was not immediately available.
“We’d much rather see people come in prepared than just come in to see if they will pass or not,” DMV spokesman Kevin Malone told KSNV-TV in Las Vegas. “You need to study the (driver’s) handbook, make sure you have all the documentation and then come on in.”
What is wrong with this country? A law passed by the 2013 Legislature and signed by Gov. Brian Sandoval allows immigrants in Nevada without citizenship status to obtain the driver privilege cards. An increasing number of states have been passing similar laws in recent years.
Just curious, if an illegal fails their driving exam does that prevent them from driving on American roads? I men after all, if you are in the country illegally, driving illegally would be a distant thought.
Barack Obama … The Food Stamp & Disability President … The Total Number of people in US Receiving Federal Disability Benefits Hits a Record High in December, 2013
Not only is Barack Obama the Food Stamp president, he is the Disability president as well … So this is what “Hope & Change ” looks like.
More records for Barack Obama not to be proud of. CNS is reporting that the total number of Americans receiving federal disability benefits hits a record high of 10,988,269 in December, 2013. That was up from the previous record set in November of this year. Also, the average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December. What else are individuals going to do except go on food stamps and disability when the economy stinks. Thus, the real reason the the unemployment number is decreasing. It has nothing to do with people getting jobs, but everything to do with people no longer looking for employment.
The total number of people in the United States now receiving federal disability benefits hit a record 10,988,269 in December, up from the previous record of 10,982,920 set in November, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.
The average monthly benefit paid to a disabled worker also hit a record of $1,146.43 in December, up from a previous high of $1,130.34 in December of last year.
Spouses of disabled workers also got a record average monthly benefit of $308.13 in December, up from a previous high of $304.31 in August. Children of disabled workers also received a record average monthly benefit of $341.42 in December, up from a previous high of $337.13 in May.
As CNSNews.com reported earlier this month, the number of Americans getting disability benefits now exceeds the entire population of Greece, which is 10,772,967, according to the CIA World Factbook.
But wait, how can record number of Americans still be increasing on disability and food stamps … I thought the recession was over? Barack Obama is killing this country.

OBAMACARE: CNN Poll Shows Barack Obama Is Losing His Own Base, Especially Woman & Americans Hardly Think the Affordable Care Act is Affordable
Barack Obama and Democrats are in dire straights …
According to the recent CNN poll, the support for Obamacare has dropped to all time lows as only 35% now support the law and 62% oppose Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation. Obamacare has never had support with the American people as Democrats rammed it down the throats of Americans in a partisan vote, but now it is reaching epic lows as even Obama’s own base is turning against the ACA.
CNN’s national correspondent John King provides some analysis on the new CNN poll and none of it good for Barack Obama or Democrats. King says, “you see the ditch that the administration has dug for itself”. Ditch? A 27% negative gap is not a ditch, it is a canyon and soon will be a sink hole swallowing up all the Democrat politicians who voted for it. King goes on to say, “that this was a law that divided us anyways, but then you have the rollout drive a lot of the president’s supporters away.” Actually, it is not just the technical failures of the web site roll out that has forced his own base to question Obamacare, it is the fact that they found out that Barack Obama lied regarding Obamacare in that you could keep your healthcare coverage and doctor if you liked them and the claim that costs would be reduced.
John King discusses the continuing trouble for the president is that he is losing his own base. King said, “he is losing part of his own base. Sixty percent of woman now oppose Obamacare, that is up 6 points in just one month.” Imagine if a Republican president passed such a law where woman polled against it like this, Democrats and the liberal MSM would be touting it as a “War on Women”.
And it gets even worse and pretty much comical for Obama and Obamacare and no one is laughing. When CNN asked, “the amount that you pay under the new health care law will … “ 63% said they think their medical bills will increase, while only 7% said they will decrease. This prompted the CNN host to say, “when the laws name is the Affordable Care Act, you got to say that is a problem.”
EXIT QUESTION: Imagine if the liberal MSM did their job and was this critical and questioned Barack Obama and Obamacare when much of what ultimately happened was being predicted by Conservatives?
Gallup Poll: 72% Say Big Goverment is Greatest Threat to America Than Big Business or Big Labor … Total Rejection of Obama, Nanny State Liberalism
Looks like America might just know tyranny when they see it …
According to the latest Gallup poll, an astonishing 72% of Americans now say that “BIG” government is the greatest threat to America as compared with big business and big labor. WOW!!!
The PJ Tatler makes an astute observation that has a lot of merit, see the chart below and notice when the noticeable upward trend began in 2009. Hmm, what happened then? Of course this boost in Americans fear of big government has everything to do with the so-called “Hope & Change” that they voted for in electing Barack Obama. It would appear that the folks at Hot Air noticed the remarkable trajectory as well. He promised transparency and delivered something quite different. What’s the matter America, you have a problem with the IRS enforcing Obamacare? Personally, I think they need to start including the MSM in these polls as well.
America, wake the hell up and make a stand against “BIG GOVERNMENT” liberalism or it will be here to stay. Elections matter, get out and vote against it if you feel strongly against it!!!
Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.
The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.
I would also add this upswing has in part to do with a bunch of gutless, establishment RINO’s who think that it is more important to sell ouch their Republican principles and protecting “We the People” as opposed to retain their power.
Mavericky RINO Senator John McCain Says Republicans Voting Against Budget Deal Lack ‘Intellectual Integrity’ … Um, President Ronald Reagan Would Disagree
So this is what the Republican party has become in 2013, and this sorry, mavericky RINO was nominated the GOP’s presidential candidate in 2008, ever wonder why you lost?
RINO John McCain (R-AZ) called out Republicans who would dare oppose a bad budget deal that does nothing to reduce the out of control spending and the +$17 trillion debt. McCain said that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity”. Really sir, you may want to look up that definition as you are exactly what is wrong with the GOP and the lack of any integrity to stand for the American people, the catastrophic escalating debt and our hero soldiers. So this is about some gutless GOP Senators worried about a government shutdown, rather than the collapse of the USA with unsustainable spending? A bunch of establishment RINO’s are more concerned on how a shut down will effect them, rather than being statesmen and doing the right thing for the American people? UNREAL … sadly we have become a government of, by and for the
American People establishment government class.
Spending is increased; however, the budget comes at the expense of our heroes, injured veterans who have given of their body and mind to the defense of this nation to have their benefits reduced. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Civilian workers do not face the same benefit cuts, it is on the backs of our wounded warriors. You should all be ashamed of yourself. So this is what bi-partisanship looks like, agreeing on crap? And a note to the GOP … I am sick of your excuse that you only control the House, these gutless RINO’s would have done the same if they controlled the Senate.
Senate Democrats actually block an amendment to restore veteran benefits by closing illegal immigrant welfare loophole and still these treasonous 12 Republican Senators voted for this rotten bill. So illegal immigrants were just treated better than the men and women who have givens arms, legs, mind body and soul to defend America. That my GOP turncoats would be the definition of a lack of “Intellectual Integrity”. As stated at The Right Wing News, we all know that the Dems prefer illegals to our military vets, but my issue is with the GOP traitors. I expect this kind of crap from the LEFT, I do not expect it from Republicans. And we wonder why establishment Republicans are being primary challenged.
Senate Republicans were unable to stop military pension cuts when Senate Democrats blocked a vote on an amendment to prevent the cuts by closing a welfare loophole for illegal immigrants Tuesday evening.
The two-year budget deal brokered by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, would cut military pensions by $6 billion over ten years, leaving some Senate Republicans scrambling to stop the cuts.
The US Senate voted 67-33 with
RONALD REGAN WOULD DISAGREE WITH MC RINO. For all of those who have said that Reagan would not agree with the Tea Party, you have no clue. Reagan left the Democrat party, stating, I did not leave the Democrat party, the party left me. Sadly, the Dutch would probably say the same thing today and leave the GOP.
I want you to listen to what Ronald Reagan said during a 1975 interview with Johnny Carson on ‘The Tonight Show” and his brilliance of what he spoke of then, that is even more applicable today. Reagan had it right, government was not the solution, it was the problem. The US, its people, business and the economy would work gang-busters if the government got out of the way. The VIDEO below is a must watch.
“If government would shut the doors and sneak away for about three weeks, we would never miss them” – Ronald Reagan (1975)
Remember when Ronald Reagan responded to Johnny Carson in 1975 on how do you balance the budget? Reagan said, “balance the budget is like protecting your virtue, you just have to learn to say no.” I guess we now know where Nancy Reagan got her idea against drugs to “Just Say No”.
