FDR was the only one to make significant progress, and that was battling the great depression too. Maybe the depression was why, because things were so bad the people(voters) were fed up and gave him the support to make laws empowering middle class labor.

When the middle class got fat and lazy they allowed Reagan to bring the oligarchy out of the shadows and back to brazen power, where they were before WW I.

But party? Nope, all politicians follow the voters demands, and when the voters are apathetic, they follow the money.

When defining the end of the middle class, be sure not to include the upper middle class.

Getting into the 10%, and out of this graph, means a household income of $118,200 as of this thread.

True, everyone's perception of where the cut off is, both above and below, varies.

Not really a chart.

Or a graph.

More of a graphic.

An infographic, I suppose.

No promise of accuracy.

If the regulator owns the regulated (or vice versa), it's unregulated.
