What Happened to the American Middle Class?

There’s one term you’re not likely to hear much in this presidential election cycle: middle class. Apparently the term is political kryptonite right now, especially since no one really knows what it means and most Americans don’t identify as middle class anymore: “In the 1960s, ‘middle class’ felt like it fit your lifestyle,” said Felicia Wong, the president and chief executive of the Roosevelt Institute, a liberal think tank with ties to Mrs. Clinton’s economic team. Even if Read more […]

Why is the Middle Class Evaporating?

If you listen to leftists and big-government stooges, the middle class is evaporating because of low minimum wage, greedy corporations, and tax-breaks for the rich.

Small Business Layoffs Begin Just Two Days After Election–Can It Get Worse?

Remember back, several columns ago when I said that 72% of small business owners wanted Romney to win the presidency? Well, I don’t know if you know this, but he didn’t win, and the effects of Romney’s loss are only beginning in the business world. In my last column, I noted that a business man, named Frank Duffy had said that he would invest $50,000 into new hiring if Romney were elected, because he had confidence in a Romney economic recovery. Otherwise, he would not invest such an amount. The Read more […]
