Under Obama, Poor, Middle Class Incomes Fall Sharply
Investor's Business Daily.com
Despite repeated promises that he would build prosperity from the bottom up, President Obama has presided over three years of income losses for the middle class, according to the latest household income data from the Census Bureau. Since 2009, the middle 20% of American households saw their average incomes drop 4%. In 2011 alone, they fell 1.7%. The poorest 20% have fared even worse under Obama, Census data show. Their incomes have dropped more than 7% since 2009, and are now lower than they’ve been at any time since 1985, after adjusting for inflation.

And it's going to get worse, not better.
Just be grateful for NOW you HAVE a damned job. Too many don't.

Oh, and don't forget the favoritism shown illegal immigrant. Oh, forgive ME, "undocumented". Pppssssst.:-(

Oh, was traveling through rural Virginia the other day and guess what.. little signs in the areas in Spanish.
Reason? The farms can't get college students or supposedly anyone else to help with what little harvest they're going to get.
When the immigrants who don't speak very good English start shooting up their hands saying, Oh me first to the local jobs, better wake up America!!
Some work is better than none at all! Remember our forefathers!

My income fell like hell soon after I retired; thus I shall whine until Obama pays me overtime.
