Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families provides the sobering bottom line on new Census data:

Arkansans earn less today, on average, than they did at the beginning of the decade, after incomes are adjusted for inflation. And fewer have health insurance. (Not to worry about the top 1 percent. Bush's tax cuts have poured down on them like a mighty river, even if not even a trickle has reached the rest of the populace.)
