"The biggest letdown on Obama's watch has been stagnant incomes, which is the one category he performs worst in. Disposable income per person, adjusted for inflation, has risen just 4.9% during Obama’s first six years, less than half the average of the five two-term presidents. To some extent that understates the problem with income, because DPI includes government subsidies that don’t come from work, such as unemployment compensation and disability payments. Both types of payments swelled during the last several years. Without them, Obama’s income number would be even worse."

How are voters punishing Obama when they re-elected him in 2012 and we haven't had an election since then


from the article

Quote
To Obama’s credit, he has tried to push policies meant to raise incomes, such as a higher federal minimum wage and more stimulus spending on construction projects. Republicans have blocked most of those efforts, citing cost issues and questions about whether they would ultimately help or hurt the economy.

It’s also worth asking whether any policy formulated in Washington — under any president — could solve the intractable problem of stagnant incomes, which was evident even before the recession that began at the end of 2007. Businesses now have the flexibility to hire workers wherever it’s cheapest, and they’re increasingly substituting technology for people. Washington is unlikely to change that.
