Great Chart

I love a good chart. I admit that I have a bias for facts and logic. I also know that lots of people don't, otherwise Fox News would have no viewers and the Tea Party would not exist.
This chart shows that when Democrats are in charge every one's income goes up every year. An average of 2.5% a year. But when Republicans are in charge only the very rich have their incomes increase by a number bigger than the inflation rate.
Interestingly enough, the rich have better years under Democrats as well.
Note: The Income Percentile number means that you are richer than a given percentage of the rest of the population. So if you are in the 95th percentile, you are making more money than 95% of the population.
Somehow the Dems need to push facts as hard as Fox News pushes opinions for the Repubs.
Republicans increase the debt. Democrats pay it down. But listening to the "news" you would think that only the Repubs know how to handle a check book.
The Democrats have a lot of problems, but I don't want to give the country back to the very Republicans that have screwed things up so much in the last 30 years just because they have better propaganda people.
