Headline in CNN Money:
The middle class falls further behind
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The middle class is struggling to survive and shrinking before our eyes, the Pew Research Center reported on Wednesday.
“America’s middle class has endured its worst decade in modern history,” the Pew Research Center said in its report. “It has shrunk in size, fallen backward in income and wealth, and shed some — but by no means all — of its characteristic faith in the future.”
I’m sick of blue collar workers voting for the GOP. How stupid. It proves that professional propagandists [right-wing radio] can not only change people’s minds, but they can make people vote against their own economic interests. Of course, I’ve said this before [many times] but today’s release of this research proves this pathetic hypothesis.
Wake up, white, blue collar workers and start THINKING. Think about how you are going to ‘save’ your middle class position before it completely evaporates. STOP voting for the big corporation’s interests; stop voting for the big banks, for the insurance companies. Stop waiting for trickle down. The only trickle down you are going to get is a warm yellow liquid.
