    Why doesn't this form the silver bullet uniting Democratic battle cry?

    ""But despite the strong labor market, wage growth has lagged economists’ expectations. In fact, despite some ups and downs over the past several decades, today’s real average wage (that is, the wage after accounting for inflation) has about the same purchasing power it did 40 years ago. And what wage gains there have been have mostly flowed to the highest-paid tier of workers.""

    And

    ""The US inflation rate over the last 40 years is readily available from the US Department of Labor based on the Consumer Price Index.

    http://www.bls.gov/data/inflation_calculator.htm

    $35,594 in 1970 got you the same as $200,000 today.""

    It should be clear as bell that wages are the issue.

    But Totally lost on the DNC.

    I think people don't understand that improving conditions for the working class through expansion investing benefits everybody.

    Here is an idea for forming a platform and message to identify with the people.

    ""Kroger employees and union representatives held a press conference outside of the Steubenville Kroger after Kroger’s latest contract offer, which leaves workers below the poverty line and threatens to end retiree health care. @WTOV9 pic.twitter.com/ZlGI5tdmm""

    Somebody better kick the 1% Democratic Elitist in the butt and start speaking up and out about the economy. The country is starting to percolate and if the DNC Doesn't do something the next president will be 3rd party or Republican.

    There are multiple millions that are forced to pay for healthcare they can't afford. As soon as the realization hits them that they are subsidising health care that they can't afford for people that are better off, watch out !!!

    Obama's message as seen by Republicans:" but they'll need more than a message of resist and obstruct to win this November. "

    It Obama doesn't call out how Trump is shorting the success of the working class Trump and Trump's style wins. Not so much in 18 but big in 20.
