No Mention of Record Inequality

Joseph Hines

For those keeping score: Tea Party, 1. Occupy Wall Street, 0. We’re two debates in and we’ve yet to have a single question on inequality.

In September the Census revealed that inequality rose in 2011 for its first statistically significant yearly gain since 1993.  

With the flood of corporate money elevating the deficit as the most important challenge facing this country, it's worth reiterating that economic and political inequality form a vicious cycle, prioritizing the policy preferences of the rich.

What do you think the chances are that income inequality is discussed in the remaining debates?
