The left plans to make “income inequality” an issue in 2014.

The reason for this should be clear: They have nothing real to run on . . . but they have a lot to run from. Obamacare is going wreak havoc on their election and reelection campaigns.

Rise up, put us (me) in power, and we (I) will take it from them and give it to you. It’s a disgusting and repellent appeal to the basest of human nature, but it does tend to work.
