Census Bureau Reports that Household Income Was Highest Ever at $68,703 in 2019.

Washington, DC...The U.S. median household income was $68,703 in 2019, 6.8% higher than in 2018, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics released today. That’s the highest median U.S. household income since they began recording it. But the COVID-19 pandemic affected who responded , potentially biasing the estimate upward. So, was household income last year really the highest on record?





 

Looking at how COVID-19 affected who responded the Census Bureau believes that the numbers were slightly skewed upward.  Even with that their current estimate is that income in 2019 was about 4.1% higher than in 2018, indicating median household income in 2019 was the highest on record.

      Why Biden? Because he was a significant factor in the country out of the 2008-09 recession. See how the graph shoots up, and it keeps going into trump territory in 2019. But just wait until you see how fast and far it will drop in 2020 because of trump’s lies and failure to protect from the covid virus.

      Why Biden? Look at the chart. It shows that the medium family income only went up about 6 %, 4000 dollars, over 20 years. This shows that the middle class is not keeping up with cost of living. If you find the numbers you will see that the investment class corporate people have made huge gains in income. Republicans look out for the rich. Biden and Dems will be looking to raise the income and net worth of working people.

      Trump has created the greatest debt and deficit in the history of this country, he has taken billions from the military for a border wall that he promised Mexico would pay for. He told his rich donors that his tax cuts made them all richer. WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS: trump and the current Republican Party are not in business to improve the lives of working people.

    Well said, except you forgot to tell the democrats up here to get off their lazy butt, get off food stamps and welfare. Especially those of you with kids and sending your wife out to work everyday. Do you think she's going to let you stick around so you can give the kids the perfect example what NOT TO BE AS AN ADULT? She and the kids must be real proud of you, you're probably real good playing games on the Xbox she bought for the kids. She must be proud of you and how you strive to not find work when our President had unemployment down to a 50 year low before the corona 19 virus. Everyone had a job, well except you that is.
    Lady, if that's your man I just described get rid of him, leave him, he's not going to change, ESPECIALLY IF HE'S A DEMOCRAT.
    The reason I say this is a saying that came because of LBJ. " A democrat wants people dependent on the government, a Republican wants people dependent on themselves" Still true to this day.
    Ladies, if that bum isn't doing all the chores, all the cooking, everything at the home while you're at work making all the sacrifices maybe it's time to get rid of the embarrassment. You need a partner, you need an adult, not an adolescent who's ambition in life is to play games, party with his buds, and make you do everything by yourself and support him. Aren't you tired of his BS yet?
    Don't let your kids think that that's the way things are meant to be, or they'll be Losers just like him, no doubt be convicted felons by their mid 20's.

      I found this, look at the percentage of dems vs Republicans
      "In New York, for example, 61.5 percent of convicts are Democrats, just 9 percent Republican. They also cited a study that found 73 percent of convicts who turn out for presidential elections would vote Democrat."
      "-New York: 61.5 percent register Democratic, 9 percent register Republican

      – New Mexico: 51.9 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican

      – North Carolina: 54.6 percent Democratic, 10.2 percent Republican"

      Just goes to show you ladies, if your man's a democrat, you really screwed up. Do yourself and the kids a huge favor, pack up your stuff and leave.

      It's a generational thing with this type of woman. Raised living off the government and has learned to birth babies for a check. What I see is the woman has several children, all by different fathers. The fathers refuse to work, so no child support. She lives on state aid and medical while living with another man who also never works. Most of all these children end up in foster care, controlled and used by the sick government.

      The government condones this lifestyle of producing uneducated leaches that are a burden to the producers. My theory from what I have seen happening is they are producing prey for the sick and disgusting child predators that have filled our government and judicial system.

      Take a look what another sick Wiener family member in government is doing (remember Anthony Wiener.)

        Thanks to Obama this country is fighting like we did in the civil war. That was because the South (Democrats) wouldn't give blacks their freedom. Now the Dems have encouraged violence until recently when they found out the majority of people want law and order. So now Biden is plagiarising Trump's law and order.
        Biden is weak, and if you heard him the other day, he had no idea what day it was or where he was. Do you really want Harris the...well the whore ( just telling the truth) to be President? Neither do our Electors

    As the news reports from last week show, the CDC was compromised from an edict that all data must be approved by the campaign committee.

    All Fed agencies have been compromised.

    The USPS is severely damaged, all this by design of the Dump destroy the government ideology.

    Why would anyone believe the graph above knowing how all agencies have been compromised?

    This is the act of an autocrat, a wannabe dictator.

      Let's hope that we as a country are not as stupid as those showing up for Trump rallies. How do people even still buy into Trump when he says he has always been concerned about COVID but didn't want to cause a panic and then at the Nevada rally makes fun of people who choose to wear masks and take precautions. Inconsistent narrative if any of them are paying attention. Nope, they just somehow believe that Trump and his cronies are for the little man when everything that's been done by his administration benefits corporations and the 1 or 2%.
