Liberals see that wealth inequality is a critically important issue in the 
US.

Whoever is in power is going to support big bailouts, as the conservatives 
proved in 2004 when they supported TARP. 

"Nearly half of Americans incorrectly think President Obama started the the 
bank bailout program, otherwise known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program 
(TARP), a new poll shows. 

Just 34 percent of Americans surveyed by the Pew Research Center correctly 
said that TARP was enacted by the Bush administration. Almost half -- 47 
percent -- think Mr. Obama started the bank bailout, according to the 
survey, conducted July 1-5. There was no partisan divide on the issue." -
