Obama's "trickle up" poverty plan is working...

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The ranks of America's poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s amid a weak economy and fraying government safety net.

Census figures for 2011 will be released this fall in the critical weeks ahead of the November elections.

The Associated Press surveyed more than a dozen economists, think tanks and academics, both nonpartisan and those with known liberal or conservative leanings, and found a broad consensus: The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent. Several predicted a more modest gain, but even a 0.1 percentage point increase would put poverty at the highest level since 1965.

Poverty is spreading at record levels across many groups, from underemployed workers and suburban families to the poorest poor. More discouraged workers are giving up on the job market, leaving them vulnerable as unemployment aid begins to run out. Suburbs are seeing increases in poverty, including in such political battlegrounds as Colorado, Florida and Nevada, where voters are coping with a new norm of living hand to mouth.
And who's surprised? Man...if Obama gets re-elected he's REALLY gonna inherit a mess this time...wonder who he'll blame

Last time it was "spread the wealth around" now it's "spread the poverty everywhere".......

I'm confused as to exactly which Obama policy is directly responsible for this.

I was under the impression that this recession began before Obama took office. Furthermore, I was under the impression that most government spending has been mostly carry-overs from the previous administration, and that there haven't really been much in terms of changes as to where the money is going, and how much is being spent.

So please, enlighten all of us to exactly which policy we can direct attribute to the rise in poverty, so that we can factually blame Obama 100% for all of it.

Sometimes it becomes not so much a matter of what's been done as it is a matter of what hasn't been done......surely you comprehend that concept?

A man who made promises, that he doesn't have the ability or intention of keeping, in order to pander votes from those who are unable to discern.

Maybe you're all for selling out the future generations?

Quote:
As part of his "Win the Future" program, Mr. Obama called for "taking responsibility for our deficits, by cutting wasteful, excessive spending wherever we find it."


His latest budget projects a $1.3 trillion deficit this year declining to $901 billion in 2012, and then annual deficits in the range of $500 billion to $700 billion in the 10 years to come.


If Mr. Obama wins re-election, and his budget projections prove accurate, the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms.

Re: Obama's "trickle up" poverty plan is working...

So Obama's biggest failing, is the fact that he didn't pull us out of Bush's mess......fast enough?

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Pocketman and Candylandman just don't get it. Pocket you can say whatever you want, but you are definitely a bleeding heart liberal. You can't even acknowledge the most obvious is happening.

And Candypants, he took Bush and multiplied it by 10. If you thought Bush was bad, Obummers is 10 times worse and made the economy 10 time worse.

I have a concept that I'm certain you can comprehend. Not so sure about a few other guys here *cough*Binder*cough*, since they're kinda dumb. But you're a smart guy.

The executive branch is not the legislative branch.

So you want Obama to do what exactly... create laws? The instant he does any executive orders, people here go ape-sh!t.

Congress obviously isn't doing anything about it, and Obama can't force their votes.

Plus people want Obama to create jobs, but don't want him to spend a dime to do so. Is he magically supposed to pull jobs out of his ass?

See my point? If not, I'll explain. Folks here whine and cry about Obama that he isn't creating jobs or improving the economy. Yet any action he may possibly try to take that he has power over (such as executive orders or budget proposals), people go nuts and don't want him to do anything. They want him to do things but don't want him to do anything. Get it?

Sounds exactly like every other politician. Also sounds like Romney.

No. That's a flat out lie. Now you're just making stuff up at this point.

How about you tell us all what is ACTUALLY happening, rather than lying your ass off constantly about it.
