The most angry at the government are the lower middle class. The upper middle class to the uber rich are somewhat ‘feeling’ the burden of higher gas prices and food costs, but can cushion it without much difference in lifestyle.
The lower class don’t feel it as they still live in section 8 housing and get food stamps and bus passes.
The lower middle class are the ones struggling to hoping and praying they make enough to buy food for the week and gas to get to work. God forbid something unexpected happens or a cut in hours, etc...
That is exactly my point. If we were to divide the population into quintiles in terms in incomes, the lowest level is on welfare and already living as if expecting a gov handout to supplement those they already get. The fifth above them and the fifth above them are barely, barely making it. And they are being skinned.
