let's see what we learned here. goofy agrees that there IS an unhealthy imbalance of wealth distribution, and we learned that goofy thinks it is a bad thing. Most interestingly, we learned that a trend that has existed since at least as long as recorded history, is Obama's fault.
Once again you don't know WTF you're talking about.
The trend has not existed as long as recorded history. The numbers now reflect the same percentage as around 1915. In the 50's, 60's and 70's the income gap narrowed markedly, then started expanding again under Carter/Reagan/Clinton. It dropped again during the recession, but is now expanding at a healthy rate again because of Obama's policies.
You really should read about a subject before making claims that simply aren't true.
