President Obama has identified a new injustice to be remedied: disparate dry cleaning bills. Megan McArdle has the scoop.

"We’ll talk about dry cleaners next, right," Obama said, prompting laughter from the audience, which was full of women, "because I know that - I don’t know why it costs more for Michelle’s blouse than my shirt." Asked about the disparities between what men and women pay for dry cleaning during the daily briefing a little more than an hour later, White House press secretary Jay Carney replied: "It's terrible."

One assumes that after government has "solved" this oppressive problem, it will move on to haircuts and underwear.
