They are linked. Stagnant income and bottomless spending means that the govt. needs to tap the taxpayers even more at the same time nearly 50%
pay zero federal income tax. Thereby reducing income further with no end in sight as the pinching and choking of the middle class continues. Gotta
reign in spending chief .. We are completely out of balance....
Taxes isn't what is responsible for stagnating household income. It's a false argument to try to derail the topic and not admit where the real issue
Corporate profits are up, Productivity is up...why isn't income up as well?
To address this problem, you would have to admit that our capitalist system is being gamed by those at the top to create a huge income gap. You would
have to admit that the GOP caters to corporations and fights for them to get more tax breaks and benefits. You would have to admit that you and other
GOP supporters are voting directly against your own interests and the only person you have to blame for your own misfortunes is yourself.
But that is hard to do...admit to your faults...so instead, you blame the government

This guy is the only poster in this entire thread addressing the OP and accurately identifying the problem. Some of you are so clueless it's not even
Xedocodex owns this thread and everyone should be listening to this poster, he is 100% correct, the system is designed to throw everyone overboard.
Ever wonder why your grandfather could work his entire life and feed 10 kids while his wife stayed at home? Now every family needs two bread winners,
the kids get neglected and the family unit is completely destroyed, but this was not an accident, this was corruption and greed robbing the populous
and the solution to some is Austerity lmao. One of the greatest tools on earth used to increase the gap from the haves and have-nots. You've been
had hook, line and sinker.
If you have bought-en into the Austerity bs then you're a sucker, unfortunately I'd prefer if you didn' drag me down with you. Cuts need to be made,
no one denies this, but they don't need to be made on the needs of average citizens who are struggling to survive. The game is rigged, no one seems
to notice and no one seems to care.
If household income was up there wouldn't be 50million people on food stamps, are you people really this dense?
