“The middle class have had a very difficult 15 years. Median wages are stuck; the economy is flat. And the middle class have been suffering on this,” said Jim Kessler, a senior vice president for policy at Third Way. “I also think that, politically, this election will be won or lost on how the middle class votes.” WSJ 11-21-15
So in response the candidates, especially the Democrats, pander to the middle-class and are promising all kinds of tax cuts. How come nobody is asking why this administration is into its seventh year and the middle-class is still in such dire straights even when Democrats had full control of Congress for several years?
Maybe if the administration had focused more on growing the economy and less on telling Americans what they are entitled to and giving them scapegoats to blame, we would all be better off.
