Re: Economy robust, middle class income dropping?
This is also a really complicated issue. Anyone remember when households were single income and only the man worked? It was an impossible dream to think that as the World shrank the US would be able to stay so dominant. Globalization was inevitable and is largely responsible for what we are seeing now. But politicians need to keep Americans thinking they are doing better then before, so they use tricks, like making it at first acceptable, and now commonplace for mothers too leave the home and work and artifically boost the per home income.
The Republicans and Democrats dreamed this one up together, so it's no sense trying to blame one or the other.
