House Budget Committee Comes Out Firmly Against Facts

Paul Krugman notices -- so we don't have to -- that real wages have fallen for the bottom 60 percent of men over the last 45 years.The House Budget Committee, chaired by Paul Ryan, has just released its "poverty report." Does it mention this fact?

No. That would be, as Al Gore famously framed it, an inconvenient truth.

Here's that truth:

Who gets all that new income? As we go up the income scale, the upper crust.

One would think that would be vital information. One would be wrong, unless one were in the Republican Party, or Paul Ryan's version of it.
