After four years of consistent and continuing criticism of Barack Obama as a politician and as President, it may not be expected for the DISSENTING DEMOCRAT to say, “Obama’s right”. But after all, even a broken clock is correct at least two times a day:
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Obama was pressed by the host to respond to a recent study by University of California researchers that shows the rich have gotten richer while the poor continue to languish.
“95 percent of the gains to the top one percent. That is so striking,” declared Stephanopoulos.
Obama responded, “It is. And the folks at—in the middle and at the bottom haven’t seen wage or income growth, not just over the last three, four years, but over the last 15 years.”
So now what?
