Breaking News: Household incomes drop for second straight year, census data show

Household incomes plunged for the second year in a row in 2009, as fewer families earned over $100,000 a year while the ranks of the poor rose, according to census statistics released Tuesday.

You see, here is the rub.   This is not breaking news to millions of Americans.  The only one’s that this is catching by surprise are the ones who keep telling us that the recession is over.  God, what does it take to wake these people up?
