Lets get to the root of our problems. Finical Inequality that is promoted by republicans to feed their lords and masters of the 1%. Now they further seek to expand those inequalities to favor their 1%. Higher tax on the poor little rich boy? Nay, Nay, Nay, Provide affordable quality education? Nay, Nay, Nay, Throw another 3.8 million down to desolation row with no food to them. Yay, Yay, Yay. Deny them primary Health Care Yay, Yay, Yay.
Now for some icing. Hold up our Nations finances as hostage. LOL lower credit means interest rates go up on the loans for the debt. Multi $ Billions in additional cost to be rewarded to the coffers of the 1% and Chinese coffers.

Why thank you auntie;

Inequality numbers census.
Are you curious as to how much the Price For Inequality has cost you with the 2008 economic debacle? Right wing austerity for the 1% is your bill.
Find your category and figure it out. Enjoy your slide to …. Heh, heh I’ll leave that to your imaginations.
Inequality for the median and the impoverished has risen to favor the 1% with 40% gains in income. For the middle and below “Minus”- 6.1%.
Our median household income rose to $52,100 from its previous trough of $50,700 in 2011, remaining $2,400 lower with a 4.4% rate of inflation decline from its 2009 levels. Add the 1.8% Decline during the Great Recession and we get $3,400 below its December 2007 levels. That’s when the economic slump for the median and below began for them.
Largest decline went to the African American and Southerners who did not attend college.
Lower the income level the faster the rate of decline in earnings to Purchase Power as a percentage of real growth of the nations income. Gordon W. Green Jr. and John F. Coder of the Sentier Research that researches household income data stated and I quote; “Groups with low incomes tended to have steeper declines in income,” The preview of the official Census Bureau income statistics will be available in September of 2013. Sentier’s computations was based on the current population survey of 50,000 homes. Both of these sources have supported the conclusion of an increasing of inequality of economic dispersal. Going back years in its role of increasing inequality to favor the 1%.
President Obama at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois recognizes the problem of the increasing inequality within our nation. Stating “Even though our businesses are creating new jobs and have broken record profits, nearly all the income gains of the past 10 years have continued to flow to the top 1 percent. The average C.E.O. has gotten a raise of nearly 40 percent since 2009. The average American earns less than he or she did in 1999.”
Recent graduates with associates or bachelors degrees were no protected from the on slaught of the ever increasing inequality in lost income earnings purchasing powers.
Homes with a High School education experienced a 9.3% decline with $39,300 earnings. Associate graduate homes lost 8.6% to $56,400 and the Bachelor degree homes lost 6.5% to $84,700.
People under the age of 25 fell 9.6% to income earnings to $31,300
Those 25 to 34 lost 4.5%.
Those 35 to 44 lost 5.7%
Those 45 to 54 lost 2.5%
Those 55 to 64 lost 7%
Southern States showed largest declines. Losing 6.2% for earnings to $47,900.
Western States lost 5.2% for earnings to $56,400
Northeast States lost 3.9% for earnings to $56,800.
By adding, the declined lost of earnings to purchase power, to the 1% gains of{40%} and you can estimate how much inequality your particular sector experienced, for just this one last Great Recession. Final tally of the increase to inequality will not be available until at least 2020.
Republicans have mathematically exposed themselves for over 80 years to be responsible for increasing inequality through various austerity polices that they support.

You have good taste.

Auntie took me to the carnival. I like that…
A vast arena circles Washington’s politics with an atmosphere of carnival energies and a smorgasbord of various agendas, proposals, desires and opportunities. Clowns to intercept and distract the populace from the serious issues of their days. Producing nonexistent scandals or plot to undermine each other, all for the amusement of the audience. Confronting The Price Of Inequality within their lives is not to be mentioned. Distract, evade and deceive the audiences, that all is just fine, with the world, sit back and enjoy.
President Obama can be heard in the distance slightly above the din of noisy distractions. Crying out to the adults within these audiences to take care. Warning of pending storms a coming, to rain on the Foxy Pied Pipers parades.
Rolling rumbling thundering reality of globalization, arc’s of lightning technological change and in this confusion the audience’s adult pockets are being picked to satisfy the desires, of a few, of the corrupted villains, lurking in the shadows.
Foreboding words are warning of this Washington carnival. Obama declares; “Washington has taken its eyes of the ball” further addressing the audience “and I am here to say this needs to stop”!
Once upon a time “America The Land Of Opportunity” rang through out the world has been replaced with the “Myth Of America”! Education constantly eroding under the various republican storms leaving in its aftermath stifling heated humid fungus infecting “Inequality” Over a century of constant erosion has delivered US to the edge of desolation row, the worlds darken back alleys, where pickpocketer’s refine their trade. Paying their protective masters a large portion of their illicit gains, with no returns to the victims other than to have lightened their load of wealth from them.
Once again the ring master calls out the Foxy Pied Piper to lead the parade under these gathering stormy clouds. Festival enticingly the audience to forget all about your cares and woes. Who wants to build roads, power grids, schools, health centers, retirement packages, universal education for the children, and so on and so on. These are so boringly of reality. Now listen to the enchanting melodies of the Foxy Pied Pipers tune’s of A La Propaganda. Everything is all right just sit back and relax.
Master of ceremonies proudly shouts we will decrease your sovereignties laws, shackling you from enjoying our carnivals. Why pay them when you can spend here and enjoy? Come one come all. The show is about to begin. Today’s show will be the “Magic of Aristocratic Benefits” across the fairway we have the sacred hall of Kings, Emperors and their puppet show of their dictators waltz.
Price you may ask? Fear not put on credit and we will collect it at a later time with a slight interest charge of 400%. Out of work? Don’t worry we can surely come to some arrangements for your desolation. Come work for us. We have accommodations for your picking down on desolation row. Where the ever increasing populace whistles their tunes of “ Lord don’t call me, for I owe my soul to the companies store”!

How about financial inequality promoted by both parties, who are owned by their corporate masters?. Still can't think beyond the ballot box can you?.

….. The Price Of Inequality
People from around the world heard the shot that crippled the financial markets. Shot originated from our Wall Street! Suspects were the Banks to big at fail.
Years of 2007 to 2008 exposed the flaw of the means and ways the USA defined their GDP. Foreign nations discovered that Inequality measurements were not represented.!
.. Symphonizing of the siphoning of wealth from the improvised lower classes to be horded by the 1% minority. Orchestrating with fine attentive desires of greed. Filling their coffers’ treasuries and outsourcing their horde for safe keeping from the Tax distributing environment of their beloved nation.
Melodies of bankruptcy erupted across the nation for over 8 million families homes. Tuning with increasing unemployment. Enveloping all within the finical ballroom. Students waltzing with tens’ of thousand of debt with no work available. Alas as the bell tolled for them at midnight, as they returned to their homeless rewards.
Millions more would soon accompany them with lost savings and defunct pensions. Safety nets that once retained them from such desolation, were sold to the highest bidder of their political domains. Strongly suggestive signing calling for the forced retirement to the improvised laborers.
Americans dreams of secured homes sold for less than its hard earned purchase. Vacancy was the norm through out the nation. Disrepair and lost of upkeep to properties festered on the infrastructures of a once proud majestic nation.
After shocks from the Great Recession will continue to affect this molding Nation until at least 2018 before complete repairs can be considered accomplished. The Price Of Inequality was merely illuminated for a brief moment in time, of the cost of inequality. Inequality has been eroding this nation for over a century. Inequality in the past 40 years has accelerated similar to the years before the 1929 Great Depression with similar results.
Within the bastions of the horded wealth, the symphony played on. Rejoicing in the price of inequality. Distributions of wealth being divided up with the 1% receiving one fifth of the nations income with the largest share to be rewarded to the 0.1% to the tune of 33% of the national income would be transferred to their coffers due to their wealth of assets. Some of which is rent control of national resources, politics and of course the media. Some assigned to continuously orchestrate the tune of A La Propaganda.
Tunes that are required to distract any observation of siphoning as was occurring during the years of 2002 to 2007, to the tune of 63% of the National Income to the 1%.
Alas had this been more evenly distributed the ballroom would still be overflowing with celebrations of prosperity for one and all.

Right wing, no facts, no substance, no comprehension, etc, etc.


Liberal International Free Trade Markets are taking a bite out of our overpriced medical Health Care systems. One of many examples is Mr.Shopenn of Warsaw Indiana, who required a hip replacement recently. Arthritis had set in making standing a painful exhausting effort even for short periods of time. He had the necessary health insurance but was told they would not cover it. They determined the arthritis was pre existing condition from an earlier sports injury.
Desperation motivated Mr.Shopenn to seek his solution. First he obtained a large discount thru a friend for a hip joint implant for $13,000. Then how much would the hospital charge to have it installed. Best price he could find was $65,000, Not including surgeons fees. Mr.Shopenn’s life savings indicated this was not acceptable.
Learning of the growing medical tourist seeking their medical procedures in various other areas of the world. Thailand, India, are two he turned down and settled for hospital in Brussels which offered the entire procedure, hospital room for 5 days and 1 week of therapy, with all expense’s paid including his round trip air fare for a total price of $13,600!
After his replacement and return to the USA he commented; “We have the most expensive health care in the world, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best,” Mr. Shopenn said.“I’m kind of the poster child for that.”
Mr.Shopenn’s discount, for the hip implant alone, is not appreciated by the privately insured in the USA who get billed up to 3 times that $13,000 discount of Mr.Shopenn. Dr. Blair Rhode, an orthopedist entrepreneur who manufactures hip implants explains the actual cost to one hip plant implant in the USA total cost is $350. Cost increase is stimulated by a cartel of 5 manufactures here in the USA . Averaging 5% increase per year in cost to implants, by tweaking older models and patent them as new models. Raising the prices on hip implants, knee implants, sterilized pieces of tooled metal, plastic, or ceramics, etc.
Dr. Peter M Cram of the University of Iowa, discovered in his studies for the high cost for the USA’s Health Care. The Cartel of 5 ferociously guard their domains from foreign manufactures with trade policies, patents and an expensive Food and Drug Administration approval process that deters start-ups from entering the market.
There are as many as 13 layers of vendors that must be paid before the hospital even gets its hands on the implant device. Running at $4,500 to $7500 for a hip implant cost to the hospitals who then raise that cost up substantially prior to installation.{MD Buying and Orthopedic Network News}
Joe Catugno billed $100,000, at the Hospital for Joint Diseases of N.Y., of which his insurer Cigna paid approximately $70,000 remainder for Joe to pay. Mills-Pensinsula Health Services in San Mateo Calif. Billed Susan Foley $112,317 of which $26,000 remained for Susan to pay. Sonja Nelson’s hip replacement at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola Fl. Accounted for $30,581 of her billed total charge of $50,935. Insurers to negotiate limited responsibility for the differences.
Competition and large increase in demand for these services has Not lowered the prices. On the contrary they have risen.
Now we can only speculate how much Obamacare will suppress these cartel driven prices? How much will the catering charges cost, for the Feds catering to the states that require, due to the austerity ideologues of the republicans obstructions to Obamacare.

Good luck with that since 63% of America is still white plus another 18 - 25 % Hispanic VS 12.6 % African American plus .9% native Americans I think y our chances of taking this land is pretty small but if you want to try go for it.
