In the Jan. 3 column, “Progressives’ stance against income equality,” writer Jay Ambrose managed not only to insult the intelligence of all progressives, liberals, moderates and approximately 65 to 70 percent of the entire population, but revealed his own stance and regrettably that of a large majority of the radical conservative element that now dominates much of the GOP.

While some of what he states might be true, generally speaking the majority of Americans, in all political, social and religious segments, overwhelmingly favor a more equatable division of incomes, as evidenced by polls favoring a rise in the minimum wage.

I will have to give Ambrose credit for leaving no doubt about his disdain for income equality.
