Do you think we have a crisis with income equality and/or economic mobility?

Both are currently at all time lows.

Do you believe we have a severe problem on this front, and what specifically do you believe is the solution to rectifying it?

I look forward to an illuminating thread.

Who can take the trust position today?
nobody in the house
most in the senate
and sure as **** not cruz
I would truast bernie sanders and elibeth warren, the rest sold there souls long ago

And a family earning 65K or more should have no reason other than their own frivolous spending habits (and of course circumstances beyond their control) to be in financial disarray. You don't think 65K qualifies as doing pretty well?

Everyone wants more, but obviously it is easier to grow your income with more money, which is why the higher the income, the higher the increase percentage is. That just seems like common sense to me and is just a natural product of the economy.
40K for a family is acceptable? Where? In small town middle of nowhere USA maybe but 40k is hard to support a family on in nearly any city. If you are making 40k and supporting a family then Obamacare is going to destroy you because you probably don't qualify for assistance.

65K in the KC Metro can be tight in supporting a family if your not frugal with your money. IE no big car payments, eating in, coupon/deal savings (should do this regardless), etc. And I hope you get insurance through work...
