On Ezra Klein’s new news/commentary website Vox there appeared an article with the title “Inequality is Highest in Democratic Districts.” This was apparently a mystery to many, even though the researcher (Michael Zuckerman of The Atlantic) who found confirmation of this fact stated “Part of this, Zuckerman writes, is driven by the simple fact of political geography: ‘cities have become, in general, strongholds of the Democratic Party, and cities have become, in general, hives of the most dramatic income inequality in the country.’”
Gosh, cities, I never would have guessed.
Where are corporate headquarters, do you think? In cities or out in the farm belt? And who comprise the bulk of the 1% and the 0.1%? Uhh … corporate executives? Got it in one, Bubba, so, … , the effing plutocrats are concentrated in big cities; amazing, right? So, people in the more rural parts of the country haven’t really seen any of this income inequality, right?
Oh, come on. The author of this piece actually thinks that politicians have looked at the data. Let me simplify it for you: if Democrats are for it, Republicans are against it, and vice-versa. Got it?
