Default What the hell is Reihan talking about?

Here's what he said: http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/9381?in=00:50:13

Does he really think that what we liberals think is inequality is just a matter of different, equally valid, choices people make? That for some reason I like to live in a house that I own, and is warm in the winter, and has plenty of room for my family and any friend who want to come over, and my low-income clients for some reason that we might not understand, prefer to live in a falling-down house with broken windows, inadequate heat, with floors they can't keep clean and doors that don't provide either safety or security? That my preference is for a job that enables me to pay my bills and provides me with reliable health care, and that their preference is to live without health insurance, even though it means they can't get their diabetes supplies, their teeth are rotting out of their heads because they can't go to the dentist, and they can't read because their glasses broke and they can't afford a new pair?

I guess I'm glad I made those choices.
