Casualties of the War Against The Middle Class

NY Times Empire Zone blog:

Senator Joseph Lieberman has sold his house in New Haven and is preparing to downsize, at the behest of his wife, Hadassah.

The Liebermans are about to become empty nesters, as the youngest of their four children is about to go off the college this fall. They are planning to move to somewhere in downtown New Haven, a campaign official said.

With 4 children just slightly older than the Liebermans’ I’m waiting for the senator and his rivals to address the real issues which our young adult children face –out of control housing and education costs, family instability, and the disappearance of comfortable middle class family life.

(Chart--Fewer than a quarter of American parents believe their children will be better off than themselves. About half feel the children will just do as well. Such is the price for the War Against The Middle Class.)
