Democrats peddle doom, but the middle class never had it so good

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

For all of the constant talk about stagnant wages for the middle class since the 1970s, the average middle income household today has access to technology, entertainment, household appliances and health care that even rich people couldn’t buy in the 1960s. The folks at The Heritage Foundation have found that even poor families today are more likely to have access to things like air conditioning, dishwashers, televisions and lap top computers than middle class families did 50 years ago. These are the dividends from our free market capitalist economy.  Yes, of course, I know money can’t buy love or happiness. But let’s face it. More money is a lot better than too little. Prosperity is a wonderful thing.
