Another reason NOT TO RE-ELECT OBAMA - U.S. poverty heads toward highest level in 50 years

The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent, economists predict. But its all George Bush's fault.
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.

"I grew up going to Hawaii every summer. Now I'm here, applying for assistance because it's hard to make ends meet. It's very hard to adjust," said Laura Fritz, 27, of Wheat Ridge, Colo., describing her slide from rich to poor as she filled out aid forms at a county center. Since 2000, large swaths of Jefferson County just outside Denver have seen poverty nearly double.

Laura Fritz voted for Obama, then asked him if she could hitch a ride to Hawaii on Air Force One one of the ten times he goes per year.

Hope and change. If Obama was the answer, it was a stupid question. Every time this fuck speaks, he batters the private sector and makes the businessmen more uncertain of the future.

Democrats just keep bringing in more 3rd world brown and black people each year. How many white people were made citizens in the past year 1000 compared to 1 million bug eaters that were made citizens.

Time for a shake up of elected assholes.

Went to Walmart yesterday (that's where I can afford to shop now). Couple in front of me was literally covered in tattoos and paid with a Link Card. I'm buying their food so they can spend their own money on tattoos.

Obama's America sucks.

Hold on folks..it is going to get much worse. The asshioles in Washington don't have a clue how to fix this economy. All I know is that the greedy rich connected Bastards who made all the money off the middle class are safe and sound and enjoying their booty. The rest of us are out of luck.
