To judge by his latest columns my answer would have to be yes. It looks like I’m not the only one who thins so either. Marbo is Guest Posting over at The Carpetbagger Report this weekend and has a systematic rebuttal to George Will’s latest column telling us how good the economy is. He closes his argument with these lines…
The problem, George, is this: The plan your team has for all of this is, to be blunt, crap. It’s aimed at people who have a lot of disposable income, and that’s not us in the middle class. You offer us modest tax rebates or various pre-tax plans to save up for every possible contingency. We are encouraged to put aside large amounts every month to pay for college costs, retirement, unexpected medical expenses that may not be covered and so on. But we can’t put all that money away. We need something to live on now.
George, you need to get out of the house more often. You need not go far. Just a few miles from your glitzy suburb are some middle-class neighborhoods where good people who go to work and raise children struggle every day just to get by. The view from their front porches isn’t quite so rosy.
