We’ve written extensively on the myth of “Barack Obama: Middle Class Hero.” How come? Because in reality Obama has been more of a “Middle Class Zero.”
But having failed to create the “rising, thriving” middle class he promised – surely Obama has improved the lot of the working poor, right?
Not so much …
In fact income disparity between the very poor and the super rich has never been greater. Consider the chart (below) from Zero Hedge, which shows the amount of money earned by the nation’s poorest 23,303,064 residents (who make an average of $2,000 a year) and compares it to the amount of money earned by the nation’s wealthiest 2,915 residents (who make an average of $22 million a year).
Guess which group makes the most?

Hmmmm … so if Obama isn’t helping the middle class or the poor … who is he working for?
