    Just wat'll we start seing the middle class bumped into higher tax brackets. I explained this when the GOP tax bill came out. Nobody seeemed to notice. Nobody seems to care. And here we are. It's starting right on time. Ha.

    These are illusionary gains in income cause by inflation. Recall that the inflation tax is the most regressive and insidious of all.

    From the actual CB press release on Sept 10th.

    Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the U.S.: 2018

    The U.S. Census Bureau announced today the median household income was not statistically different from the 2017 median, and the official poverty rate decreased 0.5 percentage points from 2017. At the same time, the rate and number of people without health insurance increased from 7.9%, or 25.6 million, in 2017 to 8.5%, or 27.5 million, in 2018.
    Median household income was $63,179 in 2018, not statistically different from the 2017 median, following three consecutive years of annual increases.

    Ignorant right wing dupes getting duped yet again by their trash mills.

    Anytime you see some creative wording instead of standard measures (real median income growth here) you can be pretty sure someone is spinning facts.
