9. according to FPI New York State is #1 in income inequality

I don't think the "Blue's" have much to brag about here. Even in the article cited, the author notes:

Still, the gap was also pronounced in large urban areas such as New York County, or Manhattan, which had the highest level of income disparity of any major population center in the U.S. and was third overall.


and we have Gov 1% Cuomo(D) here in NY, of whom it is frequently noted that his positions are often aligned with our R-majority NY Senate.

Anyone trying to make the Ds out as some sort of heros on income inequality has to turn a blind eye to an awful lot of reality.
