I remember Rick Santorum discussing a similar theme: that America’s economic decline was based on moral decline and the disappearance of the single-earner nuclear family with the stay-at-home mom.

Which is no longer feasible even for middle-class white people, due to the sharply rising price of college education and the lack of growth of income on the low end. Elite rich white men can still get their sons into the old school single-earner club, but that’s basically a status symbol now instead of the norm.
