Report: Middle America Likes Their 'Crumbs.' Don't Tell Nancy Pelosi...
Nancy Pelosi's programmers may want to deactivate her before she sees this Associated Press article.

We've learned a few things in the past week or two. Americans have a) gotten more money in their paychecks, b) heard the greatest Democrat leader of all time say it's bad, and c) seen the president give a national address and not sound like crazy person playing with his own poop.
Sucks to be Democrats, lately.
