The Wealth Gap Is Really a Values Gap

Liberals insist that spending more on social programs and raising taxes on the wealthy will close painful gaps between rich and poor. How, then, do they explain why the poor have fallen further behind each year of Obama's presidency, despite vast increases in welfare spending and, more recently, a sharp hike in taxes on the rich?

The biggest distinction between poor and middle class has more to do with family structure than government policy. Children growing up in single parent households are more likely to live in poverty during their upbringing while kids of every race raised in stable, two parent-homes will likely avoid poverty altogether. Engaged, nurturing parents do more to provide positive outcomes for the next generation than any federal program; the values we get at home help more than any money we get from Washington.
