CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: Barack Obama talks about low wages being a threat to the American Dream? The man is presiding over a VERY sour economy that is floating on the money he shouldn't be printing..... It is Barack Obama himself that is a threat to the American Dream.
Barack Obama warned that a "relentless, decades-long trend" of growing inequality and social immobility posed a fundamental threat to the American dream on Wednesday, throwing his support behind a grassroots movement to address chronically low wages across the US.
Attempting to regain the political momentum after a calamitous two months in which his healthcare reforms were plagued by website failures, the president said reversing the growing gap between rich and poor was "the defining challenge of our time".
