Census: Poverty Rates Up in Most States Under Obama

NewsMax.com


The ranks of the poor rose in almost all U.S. states and cities in 2010, despite the end of the longest and deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression the year before, U.S. Census data released on Thursday showed.

Mississippi and New Mexico had the highest poverty rates, with more than one out of every five people in each state living in poverty. Mississippi’s poverty rate led, at 22.4 percent, followed by New Mexico at 20.4 percent.

New Hampshire had the lowest poverty rate, at 8.3 percent, making it the only state with a poverty rate below 10 percent.

Twelve states had poverty rates above 17 percent, up from five in 2009, while poverty rates in 10 metropolitan areas topped 18 percent, the data showed.

“We saw the recession hit and unemployment increase, but we haven’t seen a dramatic drop in unemployment,” said Elizabeth Kneebone, a senior research associate focusing on metropolitan issues at the Brookings Institution.

“Because we’re still in this weak recovery, we could see these numbers get worse before they get better,” she added….

    President Reagan said it best: Looking to government
    for solutions is a mistake; government is the problem..
    The federal, state and local governments are a bunch
    of lawyers, bureaucrats, empire builders, regulation
    writers and too often parasites who have become too
    expensive and influencial–assuming authority they do
    not posess under the constitution. Those we elect are
    the appointers of all the above. Now democrats claim
    we need more cops, firemen and teachers? We need
    fewer of all the above.

    RINO ALERT!

    "The leaders of the Republican Party have only contempt for ordinary Americans, the very people who pay the nation’s bills and fight its wars.

    To the political royalty, we are no longer citizens of a republic, but serfs, whose wishes can be ignored and whose views can be treated with disdain.

    Like all members of Congress, Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been provided evidence that Barack Hussein Obama is an illegal President and has committed felonies both before and after occupying the Oval Office.

    Rep. Ryan knows that Obama is not a natural born citizen and, therefore, has never been eligible for the office of President.

    Ryan knows that Obama has forged his birth documents and Selective Service registration and uses a Social Security number not issued to him.

    When presented with evidence of Obama’s ineligibility and felonies, Ryan completely ignores the issue and dismisses the concern of citizens by recommending that we simply “vote him out of office.”

    How convenient for Ryan and his fellow members of Congress to be, like Obama, above the law."
