In 1999, at the peak of the Clinton-era economic upswing, median household income in the United States was measured by the Census Bureau at $50,641. By 2000, it had sunk slightly to $50,557. From 2001-2005 that figure continued to slide downward. That was followed by two years of continued upswing meaning that, according to the new data released today, Bush-era incomes peaked in 2007 at $50,233 before the current wave of economic problems. I guess this is the kind of thing Mark Warner doesn’t want to talk about.
