    Heh-heh...everybody knows about Clinton's transition team warnings about terrorism, specifically terrorists using planes.

    Anyway, what makes this thread so GREAT is that the OP says Trump is responsible for the rise in income. Go back and read it. I understand you probably missed it the first time.

    You'll laugh, too!

    Also, 911 was one acute, discrete action. The economy is a process that takes years to affect. Like, say, EIGHT years, maybe? You know, after a stock market collapse?

    What a dumb statement. If you're equating "eat the rich" to the Obama years, than I guess we need to eat some more.

    U.S. median income rises for 2nd year in a row

    Why it's good news: 2016 was the second straight year for wage increases as a strong job market has raised wages for some and provided new jobs for the previously unemployed.

    Why it's not so good news: Even if median income is at an all-time high, it's not very much higher than it was twenty years ago.

    As University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers writes this morning on Twitter, "The most amazing fact remains that Real Median Household income in 2016 is barely above that in 1999."

    Should check out the chart at the link. Most of the gains are still going to those at the top. Income inequity is something to be very worried about.

    The last time we saw an economy this good for the middle class was back in 1999, right as Bill Clinton finished his two terms in office.

    Working people always fare better under a Democratic administration for some reason.

    You seem to have missed the part where the improvement noted was in 2016. You know...when Obama was still at the helm?

    Don't you love how he was so excited to give the President all the credit when he thought it was something that Trump did, but when he found out that this happened under Obama, he had to twist himself into nots to suddenly make it something that happened without any involvement from the president. I do so love watching Goofy crash and burn.
    Thanks from boontito
