    Report: Median Income Worse Now Than It Was During Great Recession

    Report: Median Income Worse Now Than It Was During Great Recession « CBS DC

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — A new report put out by the Pew Research Center finds that the median income is worse now than it was during the Great Recession.

    According to Pew, the Census Bureau showed that the median income for American households in 2009 – the official end of the Great Recession – was $52,195 (in 2011 dollars), while the median income dipped to $50,054 last year, falling 4.1 percent over two years.

    The Democratic strategy: When something bad happens blame it on someone else even though it's your own damn fault (and if you're Black, always call your critics racists); however, if something good happens take credit for it even though you had nothing to do with it (and if you're Black always call your skeptics racists).

    Sadly, with the loyal support of the ObamaMedia the strategy appears to be working. One thing I am sure of: the next four years are going to be the most interesting in the history of the USA, perhaps even the entire world. I will let you decide whether the forecast is one of cheer or fear.

    OK, I am done with all this "it's Bush's fault" nonsense.

    PS: Even if Bush did fuck us, that is in the past. Obama is presently fucking us and too many people are taking the stupid advice given to rape victims: just lay back and enjoy it.

    Idiotic comment that reveals a total ignorance of our complex economic system.

    3 1/2 years of 8 percent unemployment soon to be REPORTED as lower but we know what it is and that ain't complex.

    Your grandchildren put into massive debt to obtain 8 percent unemployment. That ain't complex.

    The price of gasoline has doubled, nothing complex there.

    More people on the government dole, again nothing complex.

    The country divided because of Obama like never before, no complexity.

    Yes, the welfare state is doing nicely, the Obama legacy no matter how you wish to deny it.

    Pure wingnut bullshit with no context about why things are the way they are.
