No wonder John McCain can't remember how many houses he and his wife occupy. They're too busy counting how much money they've made with Bush in the White House ...

According to a Center on Budget and Policy Priorities report the incomes of people like the "$100 million Trust Fund McCains" have grown in a manner that even put the top 1 percent of U.S. households to shame (you're in the top 1% if you make $376,000 per year).

How much did people like the McCain's make, you ask? Those living in the McCain's world have seen their average income rise $1.8 million per household since 2002.

As for the rest of us who occupy the bottom 90% of the income chart ($104,000 per year, and below) ... We saw our incomes "jump" 1.4%, for whopping income gain of $1,446 each.

But $1,446 actually means nothing (as, I'm sure you already know). Rising fees and deductibles eat away at our earnings. And at $4.00 a gallon we're just sending our income "gains" to Bush's Saudi friends and McCain's oil pals.
