Fox News: White House resets focus to ‘income inequality,’ amid ObamaCare problems I've got not so much a problem with an increased minimum wage -- it's been behind the inflation curve for 14 years now -- as I do with the way the effort is being framed. It could be couched in reasonable language, cognitive arguments put forth about the economic realities, etc. Instead, the Ignoble Traitor in the White House has determined to use a big axe to cut the populace right down the middle, pitting "haves" against "have-nots." He is essentially saying, "If you don't make a living wage, it's somebody's fault," and he's going to point at the successful wage earner. Unfortunately, the "middle class" he's always been whining about disappearing holds the vast majority of successful wage earners in the country, so he is making us the enemy. Does this have any ring of history for anyone? Try the Leninist revolution, in which the Marxist philosophy quickly replaced a softer, gentler socialism brought forth by the Bolsheviks in 1917 Russia.
