So there’s that

Naming “the top priority for President Obama and Congress in 2014,” 15 percent of voters say the economy, while 16 percent list jobs or unemployment, a total of 31 percent, while 18 percent list healthcare, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. A total of 10 percent list the budget, the budget deficit, spending or other budget-related items. Another 4 percent list bi-partisanship or cooperation and 2 percent list education.

Hanging around at one percent are income inequality and gun legislation.

There are a lot of numbers to look into here but what should stand out to the GOP candidates going forward is that people are still most worried about kitchen table issues like jobs and what happens if they get sick. The administration can scream “Obstructionists!” all it wants but they are the ones who are exacerbating both problems. Thanks to the horrid setup of UnicornCare, both issues spawn questions that begin with, “How can we afford…” for everyday Americans. Hopefully, the candidates won’t get distracted by the income inequality rhetoric, which is designed to do nothing but distract from the PPACA train wreck.

So THERE's the 1% they were talking about when it came to income. Huh.

Uncle Sam's Medicine Show (SAMSCAM) cures pregnancy, lethargy and sloth. You can pick up a bottle of the magic elixir from navigators on parole or at your local IRS Rogue Center.

Proctors Without Borders will write you a prescription, the medicine is over the counter but the coming bailout is under the table.

The EPA has begun to implement their anti-capitalism programs as well, so jobs and the economy should be picking up just as soon as one sixth of the economy is utterly destroyed and we can move on to our five year plan. (The last year of Obama and four of Hillalinsky).

The bad news is that 13 million people who snuck into the country are going to be vying for the few jobs and all the subsidies they can get. The good news is that after enough anti-capitalism is in place, they will have to secure the borders to keep people in.

Every election, envy motivates many voters.

But the thing is "income distribution" is not a standalone issue, it's part of the larger economy, jobs, globalization issues. Also the wall street bankster issues and the fed money printing issues.
