Income Inequality FAR Worse in Liberal States Where Socialist Policies Reign

The left’s latest, most favorite drum to beat is “income inequality” where they whine that the rich are too rich and the poor are barred by conservative policies from ever being able to catch up in pay.

But it turns out that liberal states have worse income inequality than red states.

Richard K. Vedder and Stephen J. Moore recently crunched the numbers

For those in Washington obsessed with reducing income inequality, the standard prescription involves raising taxes on the well-to-do, increasing the minimum wage, and generally expanding government benefits–the policies characterizing liberal, blue-state governance. If only America took a more “progressive” approach, the thinking goes, leaving behind conservative, red-state priorities like keeping taxes low and encouraging business, fairness would sprout across the land.

Among the problems with that view, one is particularly surprising: The income gap between rich and poor tends to be wider in blue states than in red states. Our state-by-state analysis finds that the more liberal states whose policies are supposed to promote fairness have a bigger gap between higher and lower incomes than do states that have more conservative, pro-growth policies.

But, but, don’t liberals care more? So, why do liberals hate the poor?
