Income Distribution Skewed . . . Oh Well?

No surprise in the "news" (picture and words) this morning. But ask yourself, if even the government is admitting that the rich are getting richer while the rest are largely stagnating, can democratically elected representatives can continue to simply shrug their shoulders? And, if the representatives do simply continue to respond as though this pattern is natural, and so irremediable, the next question is what might be wrong with the workings of a putatively democratic system that gives us such callous representatives?
