Afew weeks back we were among the first report on Hillary's wall street speeches leaked by WikiLeaks. Within those speeches, Hillary's comments regarding the need for both a "public and private" position on policy issues drew a lot of attention from voters.
But, with the latest WikiLeaks dump this morning came a new revelation that Hillary isn't the only one who struggles with balancing a "public and private" position. Apparently John Podesta has also struggled with the very same balancing act. The latest example came from an email regarding the Washington Center for Equitable Growth (WCEG) which Podesta founded as an arm of his liberal/progressive "advocacy group," The Center for American Progress.
Per their website, the goal of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, is to develop "independent" research with academics from around the country, with an emphasis on income inequality in the United States.
Over the past 40 years, economic inequality in the United States has returned to levels last seen in the 1920s. Today, the United States is in the top quarter of the world’s most unequal countries. Economic mobility—a child’s likelihood of occupying a different position on the income ladder than his or her parents did—has fallen well behind Canada, Great Britain, and other advanced economies. And inequality has worsened over the course of the current economic recovery.
