MA Gov. Patrick chides Romney on household income record; gets it wrong

MA Governor Deval Patrick chided Mitt Romney on his record indicating that “household income was declining” during Mitt’s term.  Again, no need to let the facts get in the way of the story.

According to the US Census Bureau data the record tells a different story.  In 2002, the year before Romney took the reins in the governor’s office, the Median Household Income in MA was $51,085.  When Romney left office, the MHI was $59,930, or 1.17 times the 2002 level.
