    The amount of income available to households after accounting for taxes and inflation fell 0.1 percent after declining 0.2 percent in January.

    With consumption outpacing income, the saving rate dropped to 3.7 percent, the lowest rate since August 2009.

    Had enough yet ?

    We will bring these haughty, high and mighty, arrogant Americans down to third-world status if it's the last thing we do!

    Most people think it is still just 'politics as usual'. Wasn't there another incidence of millions of people being carted off without putting up a fight?

    Me too, it has been very good over the years. The Bush tax cuts really helped me out.
