According to the NY Times, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said, “Amid this country’s strong economic expansion, many Americans simply aren’t feeling the benefits. Many aren’t seeing significant increases in their take-home pay. Their increases in wages are being eaten up by high energy prices and rising health care costs, among others.”
Well, DUH! I am so glad that we have this man in charge of the Treasury so he could point out things we all ready know!
For once, I’m truly speechless!
