    Study: More Than Half a Trillion Dollars Spent on Welfare But Poverty Levels Unaffected | cnsnews.com

    “ince President Obama took office [in January 2009], federal welfare spending has increased by 41 percent, more than $193 billion per year,” the study says.

    Federal welfare spending in fiscal year 2011 totaled $668 billion, spread out over 126 programs, while the poverty rate that remains high at 15.1 percent, roughly where it was in 1965, when President Johnson declared a federal War on Poverty.

    In 1966, the first year after Johnson declared war on poverty, the national poverty rate was 14.7 percent, according to Census Bureau figures. Over time, the poverty rate has fluctuated in a narrow range between 11 and 15 percent, only falling into the 11 percent range for a few years in the late 1970’s.

    That Obama is a good old boy,he just keeps on breaking records all the time....:eusa_clap:

    aAnd there is NOVA, true to his con tool form. Posting a piece from CNS. Really good conservative source, which is normal for nova. He does not believe in impartial sources. Just lives in con sites.
    And of course, he sees no problem at all with the fact that obama came after bush 2, who provided him with the great repub recession of 2008. And a repub congress that will not help in any way. But that is Nova. No actual brain activity. Just an attack dog with con tool beliefs. Dipshit.

    Meh, conservatives have been saying for decades that welfare is not a hand up. It's a hand out.

    Doesn't matter one bit. Whatever the cause of the poverty, studies show that welfare is a "HAND OUT" not a hand up.

    It is much cheaper to abort than to raise a child on welfare.

    some like to complain about both.
    You can't abort but we don't wanna pay for them to stay alive after birth.

    I have seen people say just that and then act confused when you suggest that stance is a tad hypocritical.
