GOP Candidates Blame 30 Years Of Rising Income Inequality On Barack Obama And Single Moms

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 12, 2011 12:25 pm

One of the most prominent grievances of those protesters in the 99 percent movement is America’s growing income inequality. The level of income inequality in the U.S. is currently the worst it has been since the Great Depression; over the last three decades, “the incomes of the bottom 90 percent of households have risen only slightly, on average, while the incomes of the top 1 percent have soared.” Since 1979, “the gaps in after-tax income between the richest 1 percent of Americans and the middle and poorest fifths of the country more than tripled.”

During last night’s GOP presidential primary debate, the candidates were asked by the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty for their thoughts on this troubling trend. Instead of pointing to the true culprits — growing financialization of the economy, excessive executive compensation, dropping rates of unionization, tax cuts for the wealthy, and stagnant wages — Gov. Rick Perry (TX) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (PA) blamed, respectively, President Obama and single mothers.

Elvis you must mean moron. Rick Perry is a loser, how can any unemployed person vote for him knowing that his statement is pure BS.

Oh please! Though I can see a grain of truth for those that espouse the “traditional family”, but the “single mother” dig hurts, if the media caught onto the deadbeat dad- well even then adults choose what is best for them and the children they bring into the world. It’s misdirection from the economic pitfalls we find ourselves in today. Should have I destroyed the life of a young man who fathered my child, at the end of a 9 year relationship, by demanding child support he couldn’t have afforded? It was my choice. My child is turning 21 this month. I supported my child gladly and proudly throughout his childhood, but now am barely supporting myself by contract work, all because I lost my job and now a “displaced worker”. It’s the policy and practice of supporting the “traditional family” members that needs to be ended and more empowerment of PEOPLE AND THE LIFE STYLE CHOICES that work for them and their productivity! I could have chosen to make three people unhappy and possibly unproductive for the last 20 years. My child is doing great having foregone the college debt trap and on tract to become a manager of a retail business that cannot be outsourced and I will survive too! Choices based on need and happiness not “traditional family” values and ridiculous political stances.
And Obama had nothing to do with the past either.

Personally Kathleen, I think you made a great choice that's hard to look back on and contemplate the alternative, but ultimately I think this was the best for you and your child. Much continued hope and everlasting love with your own.
