Data compiled by Sentier Research found that since the economic recovery technically began in June 2009, median household income has dropped 5.7 percent. As of August, that median income was $50,678 -- also down 1.1 percent from the month prior.

Say 2 cars, each at 15k miles at 20mpg = 1500 gallons of gas, at $2/gal. more this year than in 2004 is $3000 annual increase for two cars. STILL - that’s a bunch of money.

What has the middle and lower classes lost in real dollars in buying power since their savior has been watching out for them?
The buying power of the fewer, weaker dollar has been devastating to a typical working family.. Especially having to accept employment in lower wage jobs of this putrid economy.. That is the crime of his failed Presidency..
Are you saying that when I purchase a tv advert, it’s not priced based on the amount of viewership (ratings) for the time period?
I don’t think that’s true at all.
