If the economy is getting better…(Part 6)

Children in poverty Rising under Obama

…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?
