Income disparity is certainly a problem.

Thanks for showcasing this growing problem with your thread Sanrene.

On our way to a robust recovery.....like virtually every other crawl out of recession has produced.

You seem to be claiming that it is obama's fault. I asked for you to show me one thing that Obama has done that would cause wages to fall. You still have not done that. I have made no claims at all. I just ask you to back up your claims, and you still have not....waiting.
Pick ANY of his policies....from his regulatory nightmare on business, his FAILED stimulus that stole $1 Trillion from the private sector, his new entitlement, obamacare, that will raise taxes and destroy employee based insurance.......just pick one here.

You've been TOLD this over and over again, but still you claim you can't see it.

Business has been telling you for over a year his regulations and pending laws are KILLING jobs.

Why don't you believe them?

No, that was Clinton when he repealed banking and insurance regulations like: the Glass-Steagall Act and allowing commercial banks and risk taking investment banks to merge, like we saw with CitiGroup.

Clinton also repealed the Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980, and he repealed regulations that porhibited a Bank Holding Company from owning other financial companies, when he signed the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act.

I fault Bush for not reversing these bad decisions and for not demanding more forcefully to rein in F&F.

The wealthy (I mean job creators ) are certainly not realizing a declining income.

Sorry, that debunks nothing, but I can see now why you won't accept the REAL numbers and the reality of what he is doing.

Seems to be a continuation of a trend that started well under the Bush years.

Your chart seems to coincide nicely with Clinton's repealing of financial regulations in 1999.

You still have not answered my question. I never expected you to be able to though. You make broad assertions with no facts.
