Here's another example of inflation hurting the middle class. Housing demand sees biggest drop in more than 2 years

  • Housing demand fell 9.6 percent in June, compared with June of 2017, according to a monthly index from Redfin. That is the largest decline since April 2016.
  • The number of people requesting home tours fell 6.1 percent annually in June

Dramatic, as always. However, a tax cut was not shoved down anyone's throat. Those paying tax got a cut hence, shoved in the pocket not the throat.

 

And then there is this - average cost today $2.87 and...it's been higher

@mickstuder
Well wait until A through I   hits his base as well as those against the Donald, are they in for a surprise. I can't imagine them not being at least middle class.

The rich ones are not stupid enough to be in those rallies, they just sit home and get rich off of how we get hit with getting broke.

 

What gets me is they can't watch The Donald in past tapes and see and hear him lie in his own words and then the Fake News is not Fake. They are so brain washed they don't believe his own words in past tapes.  How he disowns people on the time frames he knows them when braking the law, ie :   Manafort, he says 46  days, yet he knew him from Trump Tower.  

 

GOD help all of us.

This is what Trump tells his Cult Members............

 

“Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what's happening,” Trump said.

 

“Just stick with us. Don’t believe the crap you see from these people — the fake news.”

 

Example - Last Night in Florida - Trump told his Cult Members - Americans Need a Picture ID to Buy Groceries.................................

 

The Crowd Cheered - Even Though Every Single One Of Them - If they have ever purchased any Groceries in their life - Know Thats a Blatant Lie

 

Here is Some Of What is Really Happening to the Middle Class in our country

 

These Are Fact-Based Realities - Anyone With Google Can Find Multiple Credible Sources to Corroborate - you cannot find anyone who can provide any Credible Proof That - Americans Need a Picture ID to Buy Groceries.................................

 

1. Stock Market Setting Record

 

2. Lower Unemployment Rates

 

3. Economy is Going Great

 

4. More Jobs

 

Here are some of the ways - all that good news is Killing The Middle Class

 

A. Procter & Gamble, one of the biggest makers of consumer products, had said Tuesday that Pampers prices will increase by an average of 4 percent in North America, while the Bounty, Charmin and Puffs brands could see 5 percent increases.

 

B. Gas prices have already surged more than 24 percent in the past year.

 

C. Rent and other housing costs were up 3.4 percent in June compared to a year earlier

 

D. Auto insurance has jumped more than 7 percent.

 

E. Inflation - The Federal Reserve - has been raising interest rates - economists expect increases again in September and perhaps December. Credit Cards - Mortgages - Car Loans - College Education - All Cost More Today Under Trump then they did under Obama - INFLATION

 

F. Trump Tariffs - Overall, the aluminum and steel tariffs could cost the U.S. beverage industry nearly $348 million, according to The Beer Institute. Coca Cola has announced plans to raise prices, citing the cost of raw materials and packaging

 

G. Plane Tickets - Rising fuel costs are prompting airlines to cull unprofitable flights and consider boosting ticket prices. Spot prices for jet fuel are up about 50 percent from a year ago. Delta Air Lines Inc. CEO Edward H. Bastian said prices are up about 4 percent from last year.

 

H. Construction Equipment - Caterpillar, which makes construction and agricultural equipment, said it plans to raise prices to offset the steel and higher material costs.

 

I. New Housing Costs - The National Association of Home Builders estimates that the tariffs the Trump administration placed on Canadian softwood lumber — along with other factors — have increased the cost of constructing a house by $7,000
