Prosperity For Dummies
Ben Shapiro gives Bernie Sanders a lesson:
According to Shapiro, every American is more wealthy than they were 38 years ago, or in 1979. In addition, Shapiro noted that the upper middle class has grown since then.We're worse off-except when we're not...
“In 1979, life expectancy was 7 years shorter, and upper middle class was 12% of US (today 30%). We’re all richer,” Shapiro tweeted back at Sanders.
But Shapiro wasn’t done. When one Twitter user disagreed with Shapiro and said America isn’t richer and that median income has declined over the last four decades, Shapiro hit back strong.
“Except for how we have cellphones, computers, air conditioning, larger living spaces on average, you’re right,” he wrote.
