Welcome To George Bush’s America

Courtesy of GlobalPost:

Nearly 1 in 6 Americans were living in poverty last year — 46.2 million, the highest number since poverty levels were first published 52 years ago, the U.S. government reported Tuesday.

That’s 15.1 percent of the population living in poverty, up from 14.3 percent in 2009, and 11.7 percent at the beginning of the decade in 2001, according to Census Bureau figures cited by the New York Times.

And 2010 was the third consecutive year the poverty rate for all Americans had risen.

Economy? We don’t need no stinking economy….

    Obama has been in office almost 3yrs and has spent 4T dollars to drive up unemployment to where it is and wants another 450B.
    THE TRURTH – http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000
    Look at Feb 2009, give Bush credit (blame) for all of 2009
    Obama has had total control and has said if we don’t do what he wants the world would come to an end. Well, his massive spending has done NOTHING to change unemployment.
    Stop for a moment and simply do a little looking around (I don’t care if you are a Rep or a Dem), stop listening to all the BS if you take a little time to find REAL info yourself you can see if someone is effective.
    The political process is GREATLY broken in this country, this reason DO NOT MATTER. The Rep got booted out in big numbers in 08 because they where not effective, it looks like Obama is even less.
    Just remember, ALL the politicians use the POWER we GIVE THEM to make themselves RICH and when it hits the fan, we will be the ones neck deep in it not them.

    It’s simply, stop thinking the GOV (Both R & D) can fix every problem.
    Stop looking for Free Hand Outs, THEIR NOT FREE

    WORK HARD, BE HONEST and you will get by.
    Stop thinking you have to the best and the biggest.

      Funny, Im not sure how this is Bush’s America. If I recall Obama has been in office since 2008 with a super majority from 2008-2010. Somewhat humorous how people see things in different ways. If you ask me, which noone is, Obama is simply a more extreme Bush. He has followed or continued virtually the same policies and managed to spend a whole lot more. Although I’d take almost any republican over a democrat, I have to say in reality problem isn’t necessarily the political party, but rather the government in general.
