Obama & Poverty In America

President Obama and the Socialists that control Congress are achieving their objective of having many more people dependent on the federal government. Under Socialist President Obama, the overall poverty rate has climbed from 13.2 % of Americans to 14.3%. This means a jump from 39.8 million people to 43.3 million people officially living below the poverty line living on various government programs; welfare; food stamps, unemployment insurance etc. The share of Americans without health insurance rose from 15.4% to 16.7%, or to 50.7 million people because of Obama and all his Socialist Schemes. This is happening because so many are either unemployed, or under employed, and/or because health insurance premiums have gone up because of ObamaCare making it impossible for many Americans to buy health insurance.

Of course, President Obama has said, it would be much worse if his SwindleUS Plans had not been enacted. Mr. President again, what planet do you live on? Cards talk and numbers don't lie. The President's SwindleUS Plans have been a complete failure driving even more Americans into poverty. Among the working age population, ages 18 - 64 the poverty rate rose from 11.7% to 12.9%, the highest rate since the 1960's. Poverty rose among all races and ethnic groups, but stood at higher levels for blacks and Hispanics, which rose from 24.7% to 25.8% and 23.2% to 25.3% respectively. The number of Whites in poverty rose from 8.6% to 9.4%. Child poverty rose from 19% to 20.7%. While all have suffered under Obama, clearly minorities, that typically vote for Socialists, have suffered even more. Gosh, it would appear that the poor were better off under President George W Bush. Surprise, Surprise!!

Mr. President, is this the "change" we can believe in that you promised. And, is this the "transformation" of America that Obama referred to during the election campaign? The fact is that the higher poverty rate and a lower standard of living for all Americans is the product of Obama's Socialist Schemes. Why oh why can't these Socialist learn from the lessons of history and Economics 101. Their Socialist Schemes always lead to economic disaster.

In November, we must teach all Socialists these lessons by sweeping Socialists out of office and electing Conservatives (Not RINO's) who support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy independence and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore our economy and create jobs, to bring down this poverty rate.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives, who support the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists Obama, Reid, Pelosi, former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We cannot allow these Socialists to bankrupt our country while creating even more poverty in America. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedoms, our nation and way of life and for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

P.S. Those of you that voted for Obama, how is that "change" working for you now?
