    the utter decline on the middle class has come at the hands of liberals and their anti-prosperity mantra.

    as liberals continue to push regulations after regulation and the cost to do business goes up the middle class will continue to hurt.
    the problem isn't so much the middle class as it is the lower incomes moving up into the middle class.

    that is what you saw in the 80's a huge movement from the lower levels to the middle. since then those in the middle class have moved up.

    however the lower incomes won't move upward till they get the job skills and knowledge to move into the middle class.
    high school diploma's and working at mcdonald's won't do it and never will.

    Open up ANWR to drilling.

    No blog can rescue us from the damage of 35 years of Reaganomics.

    Hmmm I disagree with you there. The US has the lowest levels of upward social mobility of any developed country. The odds are that in the US if you are born poor you will die poor whatever your level of intellect sadly. This is a state of affairs that has gotten progressively worse with the passing of decades
