…then why has the number of children living in poverty in America risen for four years in a row?
Isn’t it all about the children? It is. And in a startling bit of irony, according to the Foundation for Child Development at least, the number of children living with families at or below the poverty line, has risen about 4-5% since the year of Obama, to around 21%. The irony is that 20% is equal to the number of American families on the Obama Plantation who are trying to live on some kind of government support.
It hasn’t been this high since 1992/93.
So if the economy is getting better, why are so many people still being forced into government assistance programs, and how can pro-government Democrats continue to insist that these programs do anything but entrench people in poverty?
Better implies moving towards a desired goal. Are they trying to suggest that this is the kind of economy they were waiting for?
