FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
The worst recession since the Great Depression may have ended more than two years ago, but millions of Americans aren't feeling much relief.
The Wall Street Journal highlights some sobering economic statistics that explain why this achingly slow recovery feels more like a recession.
For starters, people are making less money:
The income of the median household - which fell about 3 percent during the recession - has dropped another 7 percent since the recession ended.
It's estimated the income of the typical American household - adjusted for inflation - has fallen well below the January 2000 level.
Then there are the jobs: the national unemployment rate remains stubbornly above 9 percent, and almost half the unemployed have been out of work for at least six months.
And having an education doesn't necessarily help. Research shows that since 2009, median incomes of households led by high school graduates, those with two-year degrees and those with bachelor's degrees all fell.
As for the housing market, it still hasn't rebounded: one in five mortgage holders has a loan bigger than the value of their home.
And a new report out suggests the housing market has even further to fall... with home prices headed for a triple-dip. It says by next June home values will have dropped to a new low of 35 percent below the peak reached in early 2006.
One recent poll shows only 1 in 5 Americans think the economy will improve in the next 12 months.
Here's my question to you: Does the weak recovery feel more like a recession to you?
