Not the real problem. The income inequality that's destroying us is the 1% versus everybody else. The Middle Class has been hollowed out. The economy works much better when there is a vibrant Middle Class with enough money to spend. The working class takes part in that economy.

The other side of income distribution matters too: The poorest of the poor, like homeless people and the mentally ill wandering the streets. We can't have a decent place to live with the streets filled with beggars.

You would think all the Christians in this country would see "the least of these my brothers" as a golden opportunity for salvation (see Matthew 25), but I guess most of them are not really Christians after all.
