This is a straw man argument (just so we are clear, misrepresenting someone else's position and inserting a distorted counter argument). The main point that progressives make is that the share of the pie for those not in the top 10% has gone considerably down. Seems like he is basically saying that the poor are richer now that they have a microwaves, as compared to another time when only the rich had those! ZOMG IMPROVMENT. Also, this compares households, meaning now that more women work this is included in the data.

I'd like to point out that the think tank responsible for this video is funded in part by the Waltons (Wal-Mart owners) and the Koch brothers.
