Middle-Class America

Carriage Towne News

---- — According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median household income in 2011, adjusted for inflation, was lower than it was in 1989. Meanwhile, the incomes of the top 1% have doubled and that of the top 0.1% tripled.

Yet millions of middle-class Americans voted for a candidate who promised to reduce taxes on the rich even further. The effect of a well-financed propaganda campaign is wondrous to behold!
