What is “wealth distribution”?
Do Lefties really believe that Father Government or some higher power is “distributing” or handing out wealth? It doesn’t make any sense that people make different decisions and choose different pathways in life which lead them to different levels of wealth?
We hear Lefties always whining about these things and I always wonder why. I can’t wrap my head around how my quality of life is different because my neighbor makes more than I do and or has accumulated more wealth than I have.
I’m hoping sealybobo and rightwinger and some of the other beggars will get in here and make sense out of it all.

The biggest wealth gaps are in Dem run states like California and New York. Since Dem's run those states they could eliminate the wealth gap if they really wanted to. Fact is they don't believe in eliminating the wealth gap, they just flap their big mouths about it to get votes from their broke ass base.

Social security is social engineering no? Medicare? Both good programs republicans swear they are not trying to end. Are they lying?..

Yep...and all their heroes are the insanely wealthy. While they continuously beg for table scraps their heroes laugh at them on their way to the bank.

It’s just plain bizarre...it’s just one more thing that proves the bat shit craziness of the Left.

Income inequality is global. The Left tries to sell US on Socialist models where “the gap” is not that wide BUT, what they fail to tell you is that there is a true, locked-in 1 percent and NO middle class or Opportunity for advancement.

The latest idea seems to be that we seize all the money from anyone that has more then _______(insert the name of whoever is talking about it) and use it to give me more money, free healthcare, free education (no matter the cost or if I can even use it) and anything else I desire.
It does not matter that I don't want to work hard or put my welfare and my families welfare at risk in the hopes of having wealth.

I deserve a better life because I was born.

New York has the highest state tax burden of all 50 states. What else do you think the state should do about the "wealth gap"?

The gap exists because there are a bunch of high income wall streets types in the state.

that the right wing really is, economically clueless and economically Causeless when it comes to our political-economy.

we really just need a fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage, unemployment compensation for being unemployed on an at-will basis in our at-will employment States, and Industrial Automation to help with social costs.

college
This country needs another Detroit flint and Saginaw 1960s. Union high paying jobs, manufacturing. Ceos made 30x the workers not 300

No college necessary. You would think companies who can’t find help because unemployment is near zero would scoop up these high school grads for apprenticeship

They’ll just rise inflation.

I’m usually on your side but you can’t expect Walmart to pay too much.

I don’t know what the solution should be. How about no tax breaks for any company paying their ceo 300x the average worker? I’m making up the percentage. Whatever would spread the corporate profits out more fairly for workers.

If the company does good all the workers should get a bonus not just the ceo and vps. No?

”we need to pay $15 per hour to wetbacks and low iQ filth to work brainless jobs or to sit at home and smoke weed....AND we need to automate industry to reduce the number of humans needed within the workforce so we can pay more in welfare benefits.”

Folks, I’m not making this shit up...I promise. This is today’s Left.

I agree. Fuck a minimum wage hike. It’ll just cause inflation. But, GE makes a billion dollars and for ten years the ceo and vp pay goes up 300 x and workers make the same.

What can government do? Not give tax breaks to companies who pay ceo and vps more than 200x the average workers. That will stop corporate greed. The shareholders will want those tax breaks

I always wonder who these guys are. Are they

1. Rich CEOs trying to convince us their way is right?

2. Poor racist religious or gun loving broke asses?

3. Russians

Do benefits like health insurance count as part of the minimum wage?
