10 ways the middle class is still getting squeezed
Despite an economic recovery that has lifted stocks to new highs, middle-income Americans are still feeling the pressure from all sides.
What Recovery??? Stock Market will drop as soon as Bernanke stops feeding it over 1 billion dollars every month. A false picture of economy is being sold to the middle class. who pay for the 50% of social programs food stamps, free phones and IRS 70 million in bonuses!!!
If the " designed to deceive" immigration bill is passed their paychecks and those of their childrens will be that of the 3rd world.
64% of hispanic citizens polled said illegals can be guest workers but should never be able to vote.
No wonder both parties have abandoned us, a well informed voter is the last thing they want.
Economic recovery?????? Bullsh*t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How about the Gov insist that big corps WE have helped, start helping US Americans?
GM building in Mexico, Obama supporters. GE building in China, Obama supporters.
You'd think that the Pres would work a little deal to get these companys to build and hire in America since Americans bailed out GM. Americans have to pay taxes this year, GE does not
Wake up. This is what they wanted from the beginning, to make us slaves to the ultra wealthy. Chip away at the middle class so now there will be poor and ultra wealthy. We will be their peasants and they will be living it up on Dubai!!!!!!
The fed/fdic along with government support has systematically robbed every depositor trillions they would of made off the interest in their bank accounts. (311,000,000 people ,some with multiple accounts) These manipulated interest rates allowed the banks to pay off the bailouts out of the depositors accounts. Forced the investor into the markets to look for some type of return on their life's savings. Government has sponsored a Libor right here in the U.S.A. with the government and the stock market being the profiteers in this scheme. bank interest will not even keep up with the inflation. It's time to investigate and hold those accountable for this crime.
What middle class? Americas middle class is now in China and other nations who export to the USA.
America is loosing more middle class jobs everyday as they are going to other countries.
Many americans are getting more free handouts every day, This includes food stamps, unearned income and a lot of other benefits. Most of these people never worked in their life but are Obese.
This is all going to fuel the national debit.
This must stop now.
Another dirty secret that neither the government or Wall Street want you to think about is that every time the stock market crashes, you get taxed on the recovery, but you don't get to write off the losses, so the government actually gains from your pain.
For many Americans, the old saying might be the only relief: "If you want to be rich, desire less".
In order for the American economy to "recover" we must:
1) Remove LIFE TIME pay and benefits to politicians who don't deserve nor need it.
2) Purge ourselves of people who come to this country illegally with their hands out expecting everything for free at tax-payer expense.
3) Remove the anchor baby laws that give illegal immigrants an excuse to stay.
