New data shows that during the height of America’s depression-recession from 2007-2009, AMERICAN FAMILIES LOST $16 TRILLION. THAT IS MORE LOSS THAN ANYONE EVER REALIZED.

EVEN WORSE, AMERICAN FAMILIES HAVE ONLY RECOVERED 45% OF THEIR WEALTH.

All this while the stock market has more than rebounded and is climbing everyday.

ALL THE WEALTH THAT HAS BEEN RECOVERED HAS GONE TO THE TOP 7%.

President Obama’s appointment of Jason Furman as Chair of the Council of Economic Advisors will not help this ongoing crisis.

We need an economics team in the White House that is completely focused on rebuilding the middle class and helping working families rebuild family wealth and move forward. We need solid economic policy that pushes wealth down into the pockets of working families so that that same wealth can percolate back up through the economy five times in retail sales, home building and housing sales and renovation, tithes to houses of worship, local school taxes, and re-hiring public employees.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
