Rick Perry on Income Inequality

We Don't Grapple with ThatTexas Governor Rick Perry is looking at a 2016 presidential run. Why should that concern us?

Check out the quote to the left. And, then compare it to what has happened in Texas.  Under Perry, Texas has seen a significant rise in income inequality:

The top 1% in Texas eared 26.3 times more than the bottom 99%.

A study found that Texas ranks 7th worst in the country in the gap between rich and poor.

Four of Texas’ major metro areas — San Antonio, Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth and Austin — in in the top 10 nation-wide for large, metro areas most segregated by income.

The reality is Prick Perry has created a different Texas for different people. The system works for those with the most, and is paid for by those with the least while everyone in the middle gets the squeeze.
