Americans’ Income Is Decreasing

On Tuesday, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that, in 2010, not only did the median household income decline, but the poverty rate and the percentage of those without health insurance increased, as well.  The ranks of the nation's poor have swelled to a record 46.2 million — nearly 1 in 6 Americans — up from 43.6 million in 2009.
