In his book, Bartels challenges conventional wisdom about American politics in a variety of ways. But his most telling conclusion is that there is a clear partisan pattern to the relationship between incomes of rich and poor. Over the past half-century, he concludes, Republican presidents have allowed the income inequality to expand, while Democratic presidents have not.
...
He concludes that income gap increased under presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, Ford, Reagan and both Bushes, while it declined under four of the five Democratic presidents who have served during this period -- all except Jimmy Carter. That pattern, he asserts, "seems hard to attribute to a mere coincidence in the timing of Democratic and Republican administrations."
It's not conventional wisdom that under the Republicans, the rich get richer while the poor get poorer?

Or the poor get richer and the rich get richer too?
