You fail to understand that there are more pple in the middle class than ever before...and it has grown by an accelerated rate over the past 5-6 years. This will be the worst recession/depression ever before it is over....we could see another new dip to an all new low. This isn't a right or left issue really - it's a of greater concern than that. Don't sling stones on the right when it was the Clinton's left who got us going at an accelerated decline. Think macro scale.
