Unexpectedly! Number of Poor in America Hits 50 Year High

Reuters attempts to spin the latest “unexpected” news from our beloved government overseers…

The Census Bureau’s annual report on income, poverty and health insurance coverage said the national poverty rate climbed for a third consecutive year to 15.1 percent in 2010 as the economy struggled to recover from the recession that began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009.

The recession ended? Guess somebody forgot to tell the poor…

The number of poor Americans in 2010 was the largest in the 52 years that the Census Bureau has been publishing poverty estimates, the report said, while the poverty rate was the highest since 1993.

What happened after 1993 that affected the number of poor? Oh, yea, a Republican Conservative majority in Congress. They didn’t lower themselves to the Republican banner till they had been tempted and succumbed to the lure of DC Politics a couple years later. About the same time Newt sold his soul (and his balls).

The recession began in 2007? What happened in 2007? Oh yea, the Democrats won a majority in both Houses

Reuters ends with this gem…

The United States has long had one of the highest poverty rates in the developed world. Among 34 countries tracked by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, only Chile, Israel and Mexico have higher rates of poverty.

I’ve traveled a bit, Asia, the Mid-East, Europe, spent over 20 years doing it, at the behest of the US Army. The US is fourth in the world of poverty? Reuters, you better spin harder! I’ve seen poverty and your spin is the biggest crock of shit I’ve read since Obama’s “Pass This Bill Now” speech.

Poverty in America originates with the Tax and Spend far left liberal Democrat Party. Lets end that now!

  1. Too much extended unemployment and too much Obama cause more unemployment and low houselhold income.

    These silly bastages dramatically raised the minimum wage going into a severe recession plus they blew nearly a trillion on their union friends and one shot stimulus. Now they want another half trillion. Absurd.

    It’s time for them to go.
