Cities with Widest Wealth Gaps Love Democrats Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Feb 20, 2014, 06:44 PM

 Democrats may love to talk about closing the income inequality gap, but that won't stop them from acting like 'Lexus Liberals.' Cities with the widest wealth gaps are recognized as Democrat Party strongholds.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The gap between the wealthy and the poor is most extreme in several of the United States' most prosperous and largest cities. The economic divides in Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are significantly greater than the national average, according to a study released Thursday by the Brookings Institution, the Washington-based think tank. It suggests that many sources of both economic growth and income inequality have co-existed near each other for the past 35 years."

Democrats cause the income gap to widen since they love to build food stamp skyscrapers in their cities to attract more welfare recipients to move in.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "These cities may struggle in the future to provide adequate public schooling, basic municipal services because of a narrow tax base and "may fail to produce housing and neighborhoods accessible to middle-class workers and families," the study said."

Meanwhile, many Republican-leaning cities have narrowed their wealth gaps.
