    .3% is hardly "good news"

    In fact, it's pretty pathetic for most people.

    That has increased the nation's already large economic divide.

    Here's one way of understanding the difference that makes. The median upper-income family (those who make more than $127,600) now holds 75 times the wealth of the median low-income family (those who make less than $42,500), according to an analysis of the data by the Pew Research Center. In 2007, top earners were worth 40 times as much. In 1989, the multiple was 28.

    Here's another way of understanding it: The Top 1% now holds 38.6% of the nation's wealth, up from 33.7% in 2007. The bottom 90% now holds only 22.8% of the nation's total wealth, down from 28.5% in 2007.

    America's wealth gap is bigger than ever - Nov. 3, 2017
    That was just for the month of January.

    And that's "after an even bigger increase in December".

    You just don't seem to have an appreciation for all this good news. (wonder why?)

    And the tax law was just passed a few weeks ago.

    Good times ahead, yeah baby, yeah!

    You may think it's funny, but wages going up is a very good thing for working Americans.

    Maybe you have all the money you'll ever need, but some are struggling and rising wages are actually a good thing for them, not something to be scorned and ridiculed.

    Wages going up even a little is a good thing.

    Nah, you are wrong, as usual.

    I choose not to associate myself with either the corrupt Democratic party OR the corrupt Republican party.

    No... they've been going up pretty steadily.
