Why is the Government allowing the collapse of the Middle Class?

They have done nothing to help the middle class , in the last 5 yrs , with keeping their jobs here in America and a raise in wages . Even with both people in the family working most can't keep up with the bills . With the higher cost of gas, food , rent , health care , insurence , on and on . They drop farther behind as the rich get farther ahead . Who and what will it take to put this country back on track . The Middle Class is the backbone of the USA .

,

Update:

I am talking about the working middle class , the ones that paie the taxes ,and make this country run .

    It's not the govt that is allowing it. It's us.

    Most elected officials have stopped paying attention to anything beyond their own personal political agendas. The govt as a whole has abandoned any concept of dealing with American problems, and is pursuing a fatal leap from the cliff of irrationality. And like the good little lemmings they are, huge segments of the populace are following them over the edge.

    We the People hold the power to make a change. And We the People are not using it. We can't blame that on the govt. That one is entirely our own lack of action.

    Try 15 years, you have just began to notice the last 5 years. Well there a couple of reasons but one of them is they need to try and equalize the living standards around the world so that the econmies can merge together, also known as the new world order, the rich get richer the poor get poorer.

    Why blame the government that you don't know how to budget your own money ?? Does the government sign your paycheck ? If so, then you are a drain on the economy, and not productive, because the government only takes other peoples money. Why blame others that you aren't smart enough to go back to school or move or get a second job ??

    *laughs* Excuse me?

    I think you'll find the working class, those poor workers who run the factorie,s sweep the streets, manufacture your products, farm your farms and run your nation are the backbone. The middle class is nothing but traitors to the plight o the working man.

    Besides, why is it so bad? Is it because, heaven forbid, you have to live like one of us now? You have to both work for a living, not knowing where the next pay-check is coming from, not knowing if your kids will be killed by the poverty of the rpoblems it breeds first

    Welcome to our lives. We've been rejected for years by Middle America, Middle England and the likes, and enough is enough

    The government is too busy w/the wars!!! We keep sending money to other countries to fight these and finding that our own men and women are dying for the political causes.
