No American Dream! No American Dream for the middle class! No spiritual or material American Dream! Their households are in more debt! They're losing ground financially! They can't give as much to charity! They have to take two jobs just to pay the bills. Or.......NOT

That link is to an article written in 2003. Know what? We were right! Want more? Ok! Let's see about the middle class


The decline in unemployment has included minorities. For example, the Hispanic unemployment rate has declined from 8.1% a year ago to 7.0% in May.
The decline in the unemployment rate has occurred throughout the country, declining in 47 out of 50 states in the past year. In fact, 27 states have an unemployment rate at or below a low 4.9%.

Payroll jobs have increased in 44 out of 50 states in the past year.
Nationally, payroll jobs have increased for nine consecutive months for a total increase of 1.4 million.
The average payroll job growth this year (2004) has been a solid 238,000 jobs per month. By comparison, payroll jobs grew an average 233,000 per month for the same January to May period in 1996.
The manufacturing sector has now added 91,000 jobs this year, which is six times more than were created in the same period of the Clinton administration.

Kerry is getting his long dead French ass handed to him by the Bush Boom which is directly related to the Bush Tax Cuts! He has yet to stop talking crap about how bad the economy is. Thanks for the ammo, John "I don't fall down! That son of a bitch knocked me down" Kerry!
