The so-called US Recovery is a joke

The economy pretty much sucks right now and everyone is in denial. The median income levels in the US fell radically after the recession was declared over and haven't recovered at all The graph at the link shows the decline. The median household income fell two percent in the recession and has fallen six percent since the end of the recession. And the calculation includes all government payments to individuals, including Social Security and unemployment. It's interesting that unemployment decreased at the same time that the median household income was going down. I guess the higher paying full-time jobs were replaced by low paying part time jobs
