Record Number of Americans Living in Poverty, Census Reports
Thank you, Obama administration.More Americans were living in poverty in 2010 than at any time since at least the 1950s, with the overall poverty rate climbing to 15.1 -- a 6 percent jump in just one year -- according to Census figures released Tuesday.
What? MORE uninsured, even with Obamacare passing? Sounds like what happened in MA with Romneycare.The number of uninsured also edged up to 49.9 million, the highest in over two decades.
Reflecting the lingering impact of the recession, the U.S. poverty rate from 2007-2010 has now risen faster than any three-year period since the early 1980s...
Why does Obama hate black people? (for the terminally stupid, that is a parody of people who claimed Bush hated black people).The situation has hit black populations the hardest, with their poverty rate rising from 25.8 percent to 27.4 percent. Child poverty rose from 20.7 percent to 22 percent.
