Still think the economy has been zipping along, helping workers of all income levels? Well over the past six years, guess in how many states median income has risen? 40? 30? 25? Try 20. Yup, in just 40% of the states is median income higher than when Bush took office.

Is it any wonder polls show most Americans are concerned and unhappy about the economy? (Note: using median, not average, is the correct metric. Folks like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet distort averages).
