    The class warfare is being done by the right. The right can't get their mouths off of the corporate shaft long enough to wipe their chins.

    "Class Warfare" is a phrase right wing talk likes to use a lot. There is no class warfare, except that which has been going on against the shrinking middle class and poor. Census figures can't be denied.

    Well, that certainly is graphic....Are you obsessed with shafts of some sort? Seems so. Anyway, I suggest you look up class warfare, and then start reading demo releases.

    And instead of taking personal responsibility for your circumstance, you think it is the responsibility of everyone else to pull you out of your situation by the force of the government gun to take from productive members of society, and just give it to unproductive members? How long do you think that would last....?

    Generally when making a claim, such as data being spun, you back it up with some sort of proof or evidence.

    a lot of Obastard's support comes from young libertines who trade economic self interest and the long term stability of America for the instant gratification of a party that they think will advance the social environment they prefer

    You started with your snarky little comment, I say you first back up your claim that Obama administration is just using census data to make this argument....Then we can move on.

    blaming the rich for the failures of other is a mantra the left uses a lot. if the middle class is shrinking its because the achievers are moving up and the shirkers-seduced by the entitlement addiction-are slacking back into welfare dependence

    It does make one wonder why they supposedly passed High School, yet are so ill informed as to how wealth redistribution doesn't work, and never has.

    Well, I don't know what comment I made was "snarky" nor do I know where I said the "Obama administration is just using census data to make this argument". However for my claim that Yahoo is just using census data, from the OP:

    Census shows 1 in 2 people are poor or low-income

    Yes, it's the title of the thread, the title of the article, and it is in the 2nd paragraph of the article - so I am not sure how you missed it (data from www.census.gov)
