Average income for a family of four has fallen from about 54,900$/yr to about 50,600$/yr according to http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferrara/2012/09/02/obamas-accelerating-downward-spiral-for-america/
You will attack the source because you don't agree, but it doesn't make it not true. You will probably then say that you have a different definition of "wages" and it isn't "household income for a family of 4." Whatever. The bottom line is that middle class families most certainly NOT experiencing the great new found prosperity as the original post by agip claimed. That is a flat out lie.
The number of government employees is not a good measure of the government getting smaller. In fact, without a source from you I am highly inclined to believe that the number of government employees has not decreased.The size of the government has most definitely grown and there have been many new regulations, even outside of the ACA (soda bans, for example). To say that the size and influence of the government is getting smaller in this country is a flat out lie. Additionally. The original post to which I responded claimed that Obama was "shrinking government size in states throughout the country," which doesn't even make sense. The only thing he even has direct influence over is the size of the federal government, not the size of any city, state, or local governments.
Inflation has been steady over the last few years, but inflation at all isn't a good thing by the way. In fact it makes things even worse for those people mentioned above whose wages have decreased....it means their real wage and purchasing power has gone down even more than they thought.
As for the wars...Obama has spent more on the wars to date than bush did in his time. Make of that what you will. He's also killed many innocent people with drones. True justice will be brought to him and George bush only when they are put side by side in prison for war crimes. Hopefully Guantanamo.
And I stand corrected on the deficit--I was thinking of the debt.
Ok so I was 4/5.
