Poverty Hits America's Suburbs

Mar 22, 2013 Full story: www.cnbc.com 28

Like many Americans who move to the suburbs, Tara Simons came to West Hartford, Conn., because she wanted her daughter to grow up in a nice, safe place with good schools. Her fall from a more financially secure suburban life to one among the working poor also happened for the same reason it's happened to so many others. She had a bout of unemployment and couldn't find a new job that paid very well.

Obama's biggest accomplishment has not been his much touted transfer of wealth from the rich 1% in America, but the raping of the middle class economically.
Most reasonable people measure success against poverty by the numbers shrinking yet Obama has proven to be most adept at moving the middle class into poverty.

Finally, something Obama is good at, to bad he's going to ruin us all.

Great post Jim. Everyone I know is struggling financially, even those maintaining a budget and on a fixed income. Seems we are going backwards in this country.

Indeed, maybe this is the way it is supposed to be going to fill Obama's agenda.
He has been highly successful in moving people down the economic ladder. Why would Obama want people to be poor and requiring assistance and programs from the US Government?
Its all about grabbing as much power as they can.

All the other presidents have wanted further make America equal by moving people out of poverty.
Obama has done a 180 and moving everyone down to poverty.

Great point and that has been the theme of Obama's presidency.
What I don't understand is why so many give him a free pass on it.

Suck it up America. You rednecks better get used to three things
1. Gay marriage
2. No more guns
3. Chocolate government.
Think about that last one and you might figure it out wingnuts

See these democrats, I've been one for going on 63 years now, voted for Barack Obama just because he had that "D for Democrat" right after his name but what we were blind in seeing was he wasn't up for the job, hindsight thinking maybe ole McCain would've been able to get things a rolling in this country, dare I say Romney too?
Both had a history of working with the other side to get the best for America, Barack Obama is an ideologue, these typeset the worst presidents.
When America needed a true leader, we voted Barack Obama and if it doesn't do us in I am afraid we will be paying for this mistake for 100 years.
Happy Easter Americans

What's up with all these senators now supporting butt-f-ers? Gay marriage? Do you want to take your wife or girlfriend out to dinner and sit next to two men with their hands on each others legs? Not me! I ain't down with no Oscar Myer weinners.

Yes like the toe tapping conservative former republican senator from Idaho who solicited in a public restroom for another man to pack his nasty azz with peanut butter. We don't have to worry about republicans for another 4 years. Queer hypocrites and sodomizers and their conservative followers.

Thats one isolated individual, I live in one of the most liberal democrat cities in the USA and the democrats champion homosexuality and defend it everyday. I have agree with the democrats on issues but find there morality so repulsive and ugly.
These are not your daddy's democrats, the party has become morally bankrupt
