Income inequality in developed nations -- why the United States shows so badly

Source: OECD
According to the indicator used, the United States is either 31st or 32nd among OECD countries in income equality. We can not criticize Israel for its income inequality because bad as it is, Israelis are more equal than we are.

Of course, the Republicans in Congress would not want to increase taxes on millionaires and billionaires just to provide food stamps to assure that poor kids don't go hungry.
