Middle-class income fell in the last decade - Sep. 21, 2011
Glad I'm not just starting out in life.
Yep, and, according to the GOP, the problem is that these people are paying far too little in taxes, while the very wealthy are paying too much. Strange kind of alternative universe they are living in.
And intelligent people understand it’s because Government spends too much to buy peoples votes. From subsidies to wars, from paying for college to MC/MC/SS… Government can no longer sustain itself in the US. The answer of course for many people is to do more of the wrong thing and grow Government and its powers more.
We can already enter wars and not call them wars. What many believe we need now is the ability to just pick certain people and separate huge portions of their wealth from them…. I wonder how long that will work lol.
Let's get serious and agree that more taxes and more government vote buying is bad, and that we even want less taxes and less government vote buying.
Here, stupid -> Who Pays the Most Income Tax?

We are NOT going to solve the decline of the middle class by tinkering with the tax code.
Their declining incomes are NOT stemming from that stupid policy.
Their declining incomes are stemming from other stupid policies.
The middle class is not static. The report ignores those who started the decade poor and are now middle class and those who started middle class who are now high earners.
