The Rich get Richer and the Poor, Poorer
The chart below compares Per Capita GDP growth in the US since 1994, with Median Household Income. Both tracked upward until 1999, at which point median household income plateaued. The two have diverged ever since. This chart clearly shows that the rich have got richer and the poor have got poorer. A terrible legacy from politicians of all parties.
