The inequality focus has made things less equal

The coalition that elected Obama have lost the faith--in America. That's what happens when you believe a socialist who wants to fundamentally transform a capitalist country.

"In the latest grim tiding of the public mood, merely 42% think the American dream that "if you work hard, you'll get ahead" remains true, down from 53% in 2012 and 50% in 2010. According to the Public Religion Research Institute poll last week, the steepest declines in belief in the last two years were among people under age 30 (down 16 percentage points), women (14 points) and Democrats (17)."

A president whose focus has been on reducing inequality has in fact reduced growth, thus hurting the very people he claimed to care about.
