Obama hasn't increased the poverty level you goddamned liar! It's because those like the Walton family maintain their wealthy status by paying their employees crap wages. It's because the GOP is resisting any attempts to raise the minimum wage to a level that would pull the working poor out of poverty and not be dependent on public assistance programs like SNAP.<quoted text>
Not only has Obama increased the poverty rate but has increased the use of food stamps by leaps and bounds.
Shouldn't you be more worried about feeding this problem and our becoming a nanny state?
What good does it do anyone if more and more people have no jobs and no money to feed themselves?
Guess what president's policies did increase poverty in this country Carol? It was your hero Ronald Reagan. The number of people living beneath the federal poverty line rose from 26.1 million in 1979 to 32.7 million in 1988. Meanwhile, the rich got much richer. By the end of the decade, the richest 1 percent of Americans had 39 percent of the nation’s wealth.
Stop calling yourself a Christian Carol because you're not. You're an Ayn Randian corporatist sociopath.
