Un-hitching the middle class

‘As politicians compete to prove who loves the middle class more, they’re missing the elephant and the donkey in the room.’…’

‘Perhaps most important, to ignore the marriage deficit among America’s middle class is essentially to be complicit in perpetuating a society of winners and losers. Those born to married, well-educated parents are more likely to prosper, while those born to fragmented families are more likely to repeat the patterns of their parents.Therein is a national tragedy worthy of our attention…’
