Destroy the Middle Class

The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.

Median income in Canada pulled into a tie with median United States income in 2010 and has most likely surpassed it since then. Median incomes in Western European countries still trail those in the United States, but the gap in several — including Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden — is much smaller than it was a decade ago.

New York Times

Ever the faithful servant of the progressive left, to what does the New York Times attribute this fall from grace?

governments in Canada and Western Europe take more aggressive steps to raise the take-home pay of low- and middle-income households by redistributing income

Yeah right.  The system that routinely trounced the redistributionist states of Europe is suddenly losing ground for failing to redistribute wealth.  Is it that? Or are we just becoming more like Europe, stifling growth through the same policies that accomplished the same for our soft-socialistic brethren?

So, How's all that Hope and Change working out for yah?
