Among the arguments over umemployment, there is much debate these days as to whether middle class America still exists as it had decades before. In some ways, the class system seems to have merged into the upper class and everybody else, the latter of which faces constant pressure of slipping below that always feared poverty line.



If middle class America does still exist, would it still fall under the same definition it had years ago? What percentage of Americans would be considered a part of it. What disaparities are revealed when those numbers when credit card debt, mortages, car payments, and student debt are factored into the equation?

Because I save my threads for quick access. I also saved the text. So this week I'll just remake the thread.
