Occupy Wall Street put wealth disparities into Obama’s State of the Union Address.

We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by, or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.

What’s at stake aren’t Democratic values or Republican values, but American values. And we have to reclaim them.

Next: count press hits—income disparity and the plight of poor people got way, way, more media attention after Occupy Wall Street started than it did before OWS existed.
