18. Milk is $3.50+ a gallon everywhere around here.
I remember it being $1.49 before *. Everything is higher but paychecks. It took 10 years to boost the minimum wage at all, and it took a Dem Congress to finally get it done. The Repugs would have never done it. Yet tens of millions of people still can't put enough food on the table, because they still don't get paid enough to make a living. I know many, many people who work 2 or even 3 jobs just to make it. Welcome to America under BushCo...the rich keep getting richer, and the poor barely survive.
