I think that (along with climate change) income inequality is one of the greatest challenges to the US. We need to make taxes more progressive, raise the minimum wage, increase our investment in education, especially early childhood education, make college affordable, and invest in our infrastructure to create jobs now. It would also help to get rid of our do nothing congress, who tilt at windmills (41 times voting to repeal Obamacare) instead of doing ANYTHING helpful

I am against anything with the word progressive in it. No more money for education until it becomes an actual education instead of an indoctrination. Keep Bill Ayers out of education. College used to be okay, but now there are too many anti-God, liberal professors teaching their opinion rather than facts. Sounds like a big waste of money.

A little of being born that way, a lot of it in college, and a lot of it in their profession, especially if they are unionized. 8-)

Obamacare is the law of the land, plus the presidential election was a referendum on it, and you guys lost. Sorry. You would have lost more in the house, but the gerrymandered districts let you keep the house after getting a million fewer votes than the Democrats. So...now,if you do not get your way, against the will of the voters, you will shut down the government. What losers!!
You are scared people will like it, and then you will be exposed as to the lies told about it, like death panels.

Bill Ayers....are you serious? Anything with the word progressive in it? By the way, the presence or absence of God cannot be proven, so that is the opinion, not a fact.

If its the law of the land, then why don't the politicians who voted for it have to abide by it? Against the will of the voters? I think the most recent polls show that most Americans don't want obamacare.
