Krauthammer’s Take: Obama the Cause of the Inequality He Decries

On tonight’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said that President Obama is the cause of the economic inequality that he is now focusing on ending.

“The irony is that Obama has said he is going to dedicate himself and the rest of his time in office to fighting inequality,” Krauthammer said. “He actually created the greatest inequality.” The president’s policies of having low interests rates and having the fed pump money into the economy have caused the rich to get richer, Krauthammer said. “That’s why you get the mass discontent in the sense of the economy improving.”

“He is the cause and now he is going to redeem us from the misery that he has contributed to,” Krauthammer added.
