GRACELAND: Genevieve Wood talks income inequality in the U.S.

The Daily Signal's Genevieve Wood discusses how liberals continue to push for higher taxes on the rich to reduce income inequality, despite evidence to the contrary.


WASHINGTON, April 24, 2015 – On “Graceland” Genevieve Wood, senior contributor for the Daily Signal, joins us to discuss income inequality in the United States.  Why does the left continue to beat the class warfare drum for higher taxes on the 1 percent to pay for more and more new social programs?

Wood explains how states like California, Illinois and Minnesota, which have implemented just that strategy, have lagged behind the national average in growth of jobs and income.

Further, states with a super minimum wage — well above above the federal minimum — tend to have a much wider gap between rich and poor than states without a super minimum wage.

Add to that Hillary Clinton’s desire to “topple” the top 1 percent and we’ve got a liberal recipe for disaster.

We also explain what Wisconsin’s “John Doe” investigations are all about and how a rogue district attorney has used it in an attempt to criminalize free speech and stifle conservatives.  It isn’t pretty.

Hypocrisy from Hollywood, Ben Affleck apparently has an ancestor who owned slaves, but he didn’t really want anybody to know about it.  We discuss it. (But very quietly.)

Join Jennifer Meadows, Curtice Mang and Charles Johnson III for an animated discussion.
