Re James Fulford's blog: George Will On Immigration And Inequality…Not

From: A Reader

James Fulford wrote "because the percentage of Americans earning more than $100,000 has doubled, from 12 to 24, while the percentage earning less than $30,000 is unchanged."

The median full time wage, adjusted for inflation, hasn't increased in over 30 years. Obviously, that increase in six figure incomes comes from workers already earning above the median wage.

Establishment Republican shills for this supposedly great economy, like George Will and Larry Kudlow, can propagandize all they want, but people know when they're falling behind. All they're doing is shredding what's left of the Reagan coalition, paving the way for the return of those Reagan Democrats that are left to the Democratic Party.

Pat Buchanan, in a recent appearance on the Laura Ingraham radio show told of how he became aware of economic reality for many Americans in his 1992 presidential campaign. After hearing a speech touting the low unemployment rate a man told him "Pat, I know there's a lot of jobs out there. I've got three of them, but I'm barely keeping up."
