4 Years Later Every American has $3,040 Less


Are you better off than you were four years ago? Sure you have less money, but what about all the free birth control you can use? Not to mention the health insurance tax you’re forced to pay to your local HMO donor to “Obama for the Health Care Industry 2012″ and the sheer joy of knowing that once you vote for a black man you are officially no longer a racist… so long as you keep voting for him.

New figures from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey, compiled by Sentier Research, show that the typical American household’s real (inflation-adjusted) income has actually dropped 5.7 percent during the Obama “recovery.”  Using constant 2012 dollars (to adjust for inflation), the median annual income of American households was $53,718 as of June 2009, the last month of the recession.  Now, after 38 months of this “recovery,” it has fallen to $50,678 — a drop of $3,040 per household.

But what were you going to do with that $3,040 anyway? Feed your kids? Pshaw, Michelle Obama says they’re too fat anyway. Buy clothes? Don’t you know that clothes aren’t carbon friendly? Make a down payment on a car? Just sell a kidney and you can afford an Obama approved Prius.

Forget the naysayers, things are getting better and better. It’s time for a winter of economic patriotism where we all starve ourselves so that the Obama Royal Family has another 1.4 billion dollars to spend on themselves.

Just don’t do anything rash like voting for Mitt Romney. He’ll do crazy stuff like cut spending and stop fining companies unless they only give jobs  to transsexual disabled Muslim jugglers with degrees in 2nd Century Islamic literature. And then America will no longer look like America.

    We're all a little poorer, but the Campaigner-In-Chief has scrounged up around a half-billion dollars from lobbyists and supporters so far this election. Things must be real comfy in the White House to be going on TV Shows like The View and Late Night w/ David Letterman when your international Embassies are being threatened on a weekly basis.
