When you spend money like we collectively have for decades, this is an inevitable conclusion to those ends. Americans need to know the consequences of their votes, so I have no problem with Americans seeing such a drop in their incomes.
But the best part of it all is the wealthiest are still living great lives...the best restaurants are still slammed and the middle class and poor are still struggling the most.....class warfare not working yet
