What are we going to do about income inequality?

The two big political parties will exploit fear, superstition, prejudice and ignorance to remain in power. 
Republicans will cheerfully go all over the globe, creating jihadists and terrorists in their wake, all in the name of keeping us "safe". 
Democrats (having screwed up Obamacare so badly that I CAN'T WAIT to read the books that'll be written about it in 20 years) are now trying a different tactic. 
Their leader, AKA The Idiot, having been elected on the slogans of Hope and Change, is now talking incessantly about "income inequality". 

That's really all they've got to work with now.  Somebody else has lots of stuff.  You don't have as much stuff.  Vote for me, and I'll take that guy's stuff and give it to you. 

BTW, here's a map of 10 of the 15 wealthiest counties in the USA.  These are the people who are somehow winding up with most of the stuff.  They surround Washington D.C. like a ring of bloated ticks on a dog's neck. 

(Four of the remaining 15 wealthiest counties are the 'burbs of New York City - TARP country.  The remaining one is in Colorado.) 

It wasn't always like this.  Until recently, household wealth and D.C. wealth were pretty evenly matched.  Look when the change took place. 

So, Democrats....  What are we going to do about all of this wealth going to the 1% ???? 
How do you propose changing that map?
What changes do you want to make to that chart?
