Hillary Clinton said that strengthening the middle class and alleviating income inequality will require "toppling" the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans, according to a New York Times profile published on Tuesday.
In a meeting with economists this year, Mrs. Clinton intensely studied a chart that showed income inequality in the United States. The graph charted how real wages, adjusted for inflation, had increased exponentially for the wealthiest Americans, making the bar so steep it hardly fit on the chart.
Mrs. Clinton pointed at the top category and said the economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1 percent, according to several people who were briefed on Mrs. Clinton’s policy discussions but could not discuss private conversations for attribution.
Rush fired back on his radio show today: "Topple the one percent? She and her husband are in the top 1% of the one percent. All the people they hand with are in the one percent"
Why is she saying this? Rush says Hillary believes that "there is doubt in the Democrat party base of her credentials as a serious and honest leftist"
