Finally: Some good news for the middle class

Posted By on Tue, Sep 13, 2016 at 9:41 AM

CNN reports that median household income in the U.S. rose 5.2 percent to $56,516, the first increase since 2007.

The poverty rate also dropped. The uninsured rate dropped (Obamacare).

I all this good news is because of a mood of national optimism about the coming end of the Obama presidency and the coming of Donald Trump. (sarcasm alert.)
