... note that there's many more rich people than their used to be. (But, also more poor people, thanks Obama and Bush).
Wrong. It started with Nixon and accelerated under Reagan.
Prior to Reagan, the median income was 28% of the median of the top 1%
After Reagan, it was 18%
thanks to his two recessions (82-83 and 87) the number of poor, defined as 1/3 or less of the median, doubled
And wages, stagnated or fell in every Republican administration since.
Wages under Obama ARE rising.
