Image of the Day: Record One-Year Income Rise in 2019

From the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income rose by 6.8% in 2019 - a record one-year increase - to a record high of $68,700.  Notably, under the supposed racist President Donald Trump, those 2019 income gains were largest for minority groups.  And since 2016, median income has risen 9.7%, which is fantastic news for Americans, even if it might be bad news for leftists in their disinformation campaign:

Video: Free Market and Conservative Groups Speak Out for STRONGER Patents Print
By Jeff Mazzella
Thursday, March 22 2018

In a video released today by the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF), the leaders of numerous free market and conservative organizations speak out in strong support of the STRONGER Patents Act, legislation that will help provide relief and support to American creators and innovators by restoring the historic strength of the hobbling U.S. patent system.

The release of the video coincides with this week’s introduction of the "Support Technology & Research for Our Nation's Growth and Economic Resilience Patent Act” – or STRONGER Patents Act of 2018 (H.R. 5340) – sponsored by Representatives Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Bill Foster (D-IL) in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Last month, CFIF led a coalition of nearly two dozen conservative and free market organizations on a letter urging support of the U.S. Senate version of the STRONGER Patents Act (S.1390).

Leaders of the following organizations appear in the video stressing support for STRONGER Patents:  Center for Individual Freedom, Taxpayers Protection Alliance, Institute for Policy Innovation, American Commitment, Frontiers of Freedom, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council, ALEC Action, Conservatives for Property Rights and Tea Party Patriots.
