Distraction

The Obama administration, hoping to distract easily distracted voters from its many scandals and snafus, has decided to direct the national conversation to the class-warfare topic of income inequality, which (ironically) has increased more under Mr. Obama than under any other recent president. I hope citizens will realize that a critical component in closing the gap between haves and have-nots is for the latter to have access to good-paying jobs. Unfortunately, yesterday’s jobs report pointed out that for every job “created” last month, five people gave up looking for work. Income inequality, indeed.
