Hard to believe this is the economic recovery

It has been seven years since the real estate market collapsed and five years since Lehman Brothers and the market tanked. Since then, all we hear from leadership and the media is that we are in recovery. It doesn't feel like a recovery. It doesn't look like a recovery. The problem is we are not all in recovery -- and spending trillions bailing out big banks, big industry and the stock market is hurting the 90 percent of our people who make up our lower- and middle-class. We continue to lose jobs, wealth, income and hope while the rich get richer by the day.
