Ironic juxtaposition

I was looking at the New York Times website two days ago, where it lists the most emailed stories of the day. I found the pairing of the following, number 14 and number 15, pretty funny.

14. Budget to Hurt Poor People on Medicaid, Report Says
By ROBERT PEARA budget bill worked out by Congress gives states sweeping new authority to charge premiums and co-payments under Medicaid.

15. Corporate Wealth Share Rises for Top-Income Americans
By DAVID CAY JOHNSTONNew government data indicate that the concentration of corporate wealth among the highest-income Americans grew significantly in 2003.

The pairing speaks for itself.
