Sure to be Spun as Good News

The Census Bureau reported that for the first time under the Bush Administration the nation's income rose slightly higher than the rate of inflation. The source for the rise however is not that workers have begun earning more.
The rise, however, had little to do with bigger paychecks — in fact, both men and women earned less in 2005 than 2004. Rather, census officials said, more family members were taking jobs to make ends meet, and some people made more money from investments and other sources beyond wages.

So people are actually still gaining less from the work they do, so they're getting more jobs. Bush mouthpieces will certainly spin the increase in earnings as signs their tax cuts for the wealthy are working. But the truth is right there for you to read again.
in fact, both men and women earned less in 2005 than 2004.

We're once again getting poorer under Bush.
