LOL Only a dumb fuck like you would see that in that graph. Look at the high points on the median prior to 1998, then look at those after 1998. Does that look like a pause. Now do the same for the low points. A pause? LOL From 2002 to 2008, all the low points were higher than the high points on the median prior to 1998. And for that whole period, 1998 to present, there were only three points that went below the zero line. Now compare that to the period before 1998. Almost all the red was below the zero point. You 'Conservatives' just keep proving what lousy liars you are by repeating that stupid comment about the 'pause'. Anyone with an IQ above room temperature can see there was not pause. But, of course, that does not include you.
