The Income Gap Is A Liberal Problem With Only A Tea Party Solution

How will you be able to tell from Barack Obama’s “State of the Union” address whether he is truly interested in reducing the level of unjust “economic inequality” in America?

Multi-Millionaire Dem Claims “Income Inequality” Is Now “Existential Threat” To U.S.
