📙 The Year the Fight against Inequality Went Mainstream by Suzy Khimm, narrator Derek Shetterly


0


Democrats have been rallying against inequality long before a grumpy socialist ran for president. Barack Obama in 2012 called for a new minimum tax for millionaires and billionaires on his way to defeating an opponent he painted as an out-of-touch plutocrat. Even Bill Clinton ran in 1992 on a plan to tax the top 2 percent of earners to fund tax relief for ordinary Americans (though he ultimately abandoned the proposal to focus on deficit reduction). But Bernie Sanders’s insurgent campaign reflects a party that’s seized on the issue of economic disparity as “the defining challenge of our time,” as Obama himself put it. ©2015 The New Republic (P)2015 Audible, Inc.
