I can easily say it wirth a straight face because it is true. You actually need to LEARN TO READ instead of relying on the spin. The FACT is that the chief driver of inflation since the 1970s has been health care costs which are paid for with benefits. If you factor out health care costs, real wages would have increased substantially. But it is more accurate (as any economist will tell you) to consider total real compensation (which includes benefits) which, again, has steadily and substantially improved:
The graph actuslly COMPLETELY DISPROVES your claim about benefits.
Do try to keep up.
