Let's review:

- If you were in the bottom 20% of net worth families, yours increased by 99.2%. During the Clinton era it increased by 60.4%.

- In the top 20% you went up by 46.1% in 2001 to 2007 era. In the Clinton era your net worth increased by 135.6%.

The bottom line is that the myth of the rich getting a free pass under Bush has, again, been slain. Even though they did well, they did far better in the Clinton era.

Also. the myth that the poor suffered under Bush and did much better under Clinton has also been slain.

Now, to be fair, the 2001 to 2007 and half of the Clinton era were under a R ruled congress.

Since 2007 both the top and the bottom 20% have suffered.

No, but large numbers in both camps have.

Did you have a point, other than to show how little you know?

Again, please seek out a remedial English course as the answers to both of your questions are self evident in what you quoted.
