Yes, that IS too much to ask for 2013. More important than an increase in wealth for all is the "fairness" of no one's wealth increasing. That way, only politicians will have incomes well above average; the rest of us can take comfort in the new "income equality" that the Left has brought us.
A thriving economy always seems to lead to the evil "income inequality," as some strive harder than others and achieve more success for themselves. Ick!
