  •  I was raised middle class (10+ / 0-)

    You can do anything you want (within your talents, of course) but you can be happy with just a middle class income.

    There is no longer a middle class income.  Not for me, and not for many, many of my generation.

    First they took away the defined pension program that my parents relied on in retirement...now they are taking away the Social Security we have paid for over the past thirty years.

    And single-payer health care is as far away as it ever was.

    May I move to Canada now?
