From the fact that people are very different it follows that, if we treat them equally, the result must be inequality in their actual position, and that the only way to place them in an equal position would be to treat them differently. Equality before the law and material equality are therefore not only different but are in conflict with each other; and we can achieve either one or the other, but not both at the same time

Obama's Middle Class Task Force Has No Middle Class

In fact, they don't really want any middle class input. Don't believe me? Read this from Yahoo News!
While middle class Americans are invited to submit questions and ideas through the task force's website,, tickets for the Philadelphia meeting were distributed [only] to labor and environmental groups. [Moreover] the task force did not accept questions from the audience. "If Biden and his team want to go into this [middle class issue]," said Daniel Morris, communications director of the Drum Major Institute, a think tank that analyzes middle class policy issues, "They're going to need to talk to real members of the middle class. There's no substitute for immediate intimate interaction."
