Middle Class Lost In Obama's 'Middle Class Economics'

The Census Bureau's latest annual report on income and poverty in America shows that there was little to cheer about in 2014.
 
After six-plus years of President Obama's big-spending, tax-raising policies, middle-class families have seen their incomes decline and more families have fallen into poverty, Census data show.
 
The Census Bureau's latest annual report on income and poverty in America shows that there was little to cheer about in 2014.
 
Median family income dropped slightly to $53,657, down from the year before. Every income group suffered losses, with the lowest fifth of households dropping close to 1%.
 
The overall poverty number barely budged. But it climbed by almost 600,000 among blacks in 2014, more than half of whom were under age 18.
 
This isn't exactly the picture that Obama has been painting. In fact, there's little that Obama likes to do more than brag about the economy.
 
A couple of months ago, he was in Wisconsin, crediting his policies for "record" job growth, tumbling deficits and big gains in the stock market.
"Step by step, America is moving forward," he said. "Middle-class economics works. It works. Yes!"
 
It's hard to see any evidence of that in the Census numbers.
 
Another progtard myth destroyed.

Facts like that don't matter in the libtard agenda. The Obama term is nothing more than promise everything, deliver nothing, and blame someone else.

Reversing decades of trickle down crony capitalism would take some huge changes, and that is not going to happen no matter who is president or who is in congress

There are very few that are not part of the machine

In that regard, Obama wasn't, but was quickly assimilated.

McCain always was, and stood for nothing other than cheerleading W and his neo con masters

Romney was worse,

The only one on the horizon with any distance from the big money is Sanders


At least we have recovered from the Bush melt down of 2008

Do you ever ask yourself:
 
Why doesn't anyone take what I have to say seriously?
 
If not, you should.

It doesn't matter

It's a mb

When it does matter, they do

That's good enough, and you do not matter

Go back to your rwnj blogs and fill up on more fear and lies

They are counting on you to fill their purses
