Who is better for America? Democrats or Republicans

Have you heard the lie
that there isn't any difference between the parties?  Or maybe the
really big lie that Republicans are better on the economy than
Democrats?  Well, this graph and video should dispel them both.


I've been trying to figure out how to link to Timothy Noah's series on
inequality
, which falls under the rubric of “things you should read
that I have nothing to say about.” One thing I can say is that Noah,
Catherine Mulbrandon and Slate have put an enormous amount of work into
creating visuals to accompany the articles, and the results are really
impressive. This graph, for instance, is the best visualization I've
seen of Larry Bartels’s striking data showing how different income
groups do under Republican and Democratic presidents:
