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.

Mrs WBill and I are solidly ensconced in the middle class. Nevermind $$$$, not germaine to the topic. Just an average middleclass suburbanite slob, that's me.

20 years ago, if you had told me what my salary would be be today, I'd probably have said, "OK. I've got a college degree, I work hard. I believe it."

HOWEVER, if you had told me 20 years ago what my salary would be today ... AND ... that I'd need to clip coupons, skip vacations, stop eating out, plan my driving trips, basically cut every corner and trim every bit of fat possible just to stay afloat ....

... I'd have told you that you were absolutely nuts.
