Obummer’s Impact

He DID Warn Us...

Per The New York Times:

Forty-four million people in the United States, or one in seven residents, lived in poverty in 2009, an increase of 4 million from the year before, the Census Bureau reported on Thursday.

The poverty rate climbed to 14.3 percent — the highest level since 1994 — from 13.2 percent in 2008. The rise was steepest for children, with one in five residents under 18 living below the official poverty line, the bureau said.

For a single adult in 2009, the poverty line was $10,830 in pretax cash income; for a family of four, $22,050.

The number of residents without health insurance in 2009 climbed to 51 million, from 46 million in 2008.

I take it that when you say “impact”, this is meant somewhat ironically, because it’s really the impact of what Obama has allowed through his inaction or acquiescence to the business community’s raping of America (though I’m not sure how this would be clearly differentiated from Reagan, who, it seems to me, might be more easily accused of the “Come on in, boys!” mode than Obama, who is more of a limp-dicked platitudinous deflector who wants to “work with” everyone (except the constituency he was supposed to represent, obviously).
