The erasure of the middle class.... 

Got this from the Facebook page of People For the American Way. Guess I shouldn't be surprised that it's about a city where I can no longer afford to live:

In suburban America, middle class begins to confront poverty

Hey, it doesn't take much to cross the line from okay financially to floundering. One layoff, one person becoming disabled (that's what happened to me), house fire, "act of God". I'd like to see all the politicians live on the equivalent of a Social Security check for a year (about $12,000 not counting Medicare deductions), no pensions, no retirement accounts, no fancy Congressional health insurance, NOTHING extra. Bet they'd be at the food bank before a month was up.
