    So having a competant government and a strong economy is bad for the middle class?

    You do realize there are no classes right?

    And, you have a link for that 2012 data on Americans' net worth?

    See, because this 2010 data on Americans' net worth is the most current there is - from the Federal Reserve. The Fed has already updated this data to include this year?

    Wow. Let's see the link.

    TIA.

    I probably posted this a dozen times. From the Fed....

    And I am sorry, I was wrong. It's up to $10 trillion since Obama took office.

    So your point is it went way up under republican control and now we're still below when we had republicans in control of all 3 branches? God we need NAncy Pelosi back in so we can dip below 50 this time!

    Thanks for the link.

    Yet, the net worth of households fell 40% between 2007 and 2010. What can I say?

    Obama has yet to save the middle class, like he said he would. The middle class is much worse off today than it was in 1992.

    Pretty weak.

    Bush was the goose that flew into the engine.

    Obama landed the plane in the Hudson.
