And the fruits of the left’s labor has ripened. This is always what they strive for – people who will be dependent on them.

The Right Scoop –

DAILY MAIL – Since 2008, the number of people who call themselves middle class has fallen by nearly a fifth, according to a survey in January by the Pew Research Center, from 53 percent to 44 percent. Forty percent now identify as either lower-middle or lower class compared with just 25 percent in February 2008.

According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans who say they’re middle or upper-middle class fell 8 points between 2008 and 2012, to 55 percent.

And the most recent General Social Survey, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago, found that the vast proportion of Americans who call themselves middle or working class, though still high at 88 percent, is the lowest in the survey’s 40-year history. It’s fallen 4 percentage points since the recession began in 2007.

  1. The wife says we are upper middle class for now. But, much more of socialism we may end up lower middle cast.

  2. Be encouraged, we can still win. We, the middle class, are the ones willing to work hard labor and reinvent ourselves, or morph into the people who will do whatever type of legitimate work is needed to make our way in life. My husband and I lost our small trucking company due to Obama’s economy and more and more choking government regulations. We also lost our health insurance due to Obamacare. My husband has been willing to use his other abilities and training to see us through this trial, God bless him! We have liquidated assets and he has worked hard in three different areas in which he had experience. Now, he has investors who are interested in a business idea he saw the need for in these times. We have three grown children who have all been willing to do whatever it took to support themselves, even outside their training. Our two sons left our state (AL.) for Texas, where jobs are plentiful for those willing to work hard. Our daughter, a single mother, is working three jobs in Florida within the resort industry there. They are all hard working young people, willing to go above and beyond the call, and they are all being noticed, appreciated, receiving raises and promotions. I am not sharing this to brag, we have a long way to go, but I want to encourage all others out there who feel like giving up! My husband has heard from so many business owners that they cannot find hard working dedicated employees anymore, the majority are lazy, and won’t stay sober or they stay high. Don’t give up, there are jobs out there that you can handle and really stand out as you do, then you will be the one who gets promoted and raised, because you were willing to go the extra mile. Don’t let Obama knock you out of whatever “class” you’re in, just be willing to see a need and fill it, even if you have to accept less for a while, you WILL get back up on your feet again!
