Is the US economy really making a comeback or is everything just inflated?

Report as

Overall the economy is coming back. The problem that most of us see is that it is coming back in an uneven way. When you break the recovery down into groups, you'll quickly see that the rich are doing very well at recouping their losses and making new money. The poor and the middle class are not doing nearly as well. Many are still sliding backwards. Most are barely treading water.

Huh..., rich making a recovery..., as if they lost anything. Did the rich go hungry at any time when they were losing?

They recovered anything they they lost and then a lot more. Look. I'm with you. The rich don't go hungry. Unless they worked or stole their way up from rags they should. They would learn a lot.

The more you suffer, the more it shows you really care, right?

That's not my point. The point is that it is hard for people to have an appreciation for the plight of others when they are so very far removed from a similar plight.

On paper they say it is. When I shop for food and buy gasoline and notice that I have so much less to work with than I did before, I have my doubts. Sometimes I think the government says these things to make people not panic!

70% of the public doesn't believe that the economy is getting better, while 32% believes that it is. The 32%..., must be some interesting people!

70% is the poor. 32% is the rich

that's 102% though

Where is that % coming from..., 102%? It's only a few people who believes when 70% weighs out as the TRUTH.

***** I'm sure the rich are seeing quite an increase.
I'm also sure the numbers are as much a lie as most things we hear these days. I see absolutely nothing getting better, in fact the opposite. People losing jobs and their homes. *****
