Can't keep up: More Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck

Can't keep up: More Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck

There is Nothing more depressing than working 40+ hours a week and struggling pay check to pay check. With no healthcare. Watching the reds cut the social safety net while they blame the victim and profit off of the rest of us.

It's because multibillionaire legacy families like the Kochs, Mercers, and DeVoses need a permanent American slave class to consolidate and grow their power.

A lifetime of wage slavery for all Americans but their own billionaire class: that's their endgame.

I don't think you understand what you're saying...

Looks at comment history

OK, yep.

Sadly there are people in that situation that continue to vote for that.

This has been going on since Daddy Koch helped found the John Birch Society in the 1950s.

Profits at an all-time high, wages stagnating at depressingly low levels.

Hmm, seems to be an imbalance in this equation.

Housing is a big part of this. Rental prices in Nashville are about double what they were a decade ago. It's a similar story in most cities since more and more people are moving to urban areas since that's where all of the work is.

Looks like the have-mores haven't achieved success yet. Some of the poors still have modest savings. The next round of tax cuts for the super-wealthy should fix that.

But...her emails...

Good. Now we should cut taxes on only the wealthiest Americans and deconstruct our social safety net so that America can fall into complete chaos and the Rich can rule as feudal lords.

93% of Americans make less than 100,000 a year. It's not a savings problem.
