Obama's Economic Policies Have Increased Black Poverty.

Tuesday, 27 March 2012
Written by Dyan Bermeo

On the MSNBC special "The Black Agenda", hosted by Ed Schultz, a distinguished panel discusses black issues and current events. In this segment, Al Sharpton and Cornel West go head-to-head over Obama's presidency.

Everything is going to be ok. Barack Obama is going to help the African American community out. He's on our side. Unfortunately, Barack Obama is a puppet. Hes in cahoots with the establishment and the globalists. Their is evidence that the African community has reached its highest unemployment in 27 years. The unemployment rate for blacks surged to 16.7% in August, its highest rate since 1984, the Labor Department reported Friday.Source: Labor of Statistics.

Black unemployment: Highest in 27 years

Currently, nearly 46 million people in the United States receive food stamps, or about 15 percent of the population – an increase of 74 percent since 2007, just before the recession led to mass job losses.

Under Obama,the black middle class is shrinking into poverty. Under his economic policy, black Americans have been crushed.

Under Obama, USA becomes Food Stamp Nation but is it sustainable?

By Kristina Cooke
NEW YORK
Mon Aug 22, 2011

(Reuters)- Genna Saucedo supervises cashiers at a Wal-Mart in Pico Rivera, California, but her wages aren't enough to feed herself and her 12-year-old son.

Saucedo, who earns $9.70 an hour for about 26 hours a week and lives with her mother, is one of the many Americans who survive because of government handouts in what has rapidly become a food stamp nation.

Altogether, there are now almost 46 million people in the United States on food stamps, roughly 15 percent of the population. That's an increase of 74 percent since 2007, just before the financial crisis and a deep recession led to mass job losses.

At the same time, the cost doubled to reach $68 billion in 2010 -- more than a third of the amount the U.S. government received in corporate income tax last year -- which means the program has started to attract the attention of some Republican lawmakers looking for ways to cut the nation's budget deficit.

While there are clearly some cases of abuse by people who claim food stamps but don't really need them, for many Americans like Saucedo there is little current alternative if they are to put food on the table while paying rent and utility bills.

"It's kind of sad that even though I'm working that I need to have government assistance. I have asked them to please put me on full-time so I can have benefits," said the 32-year-old.

She's worked at Wal-Mart for nine months, and applied for food stamps as soon as her probation ended. She said plenty of her colleagues are in the same situation.

So are her customers. Bill Simon, head of Wal-Mart's U.S. operations, told a conference call last Tuesday that the company had seen an increase in the number of shoppers relying on government assistance for food.

About forty percent of food stamp recipients are, like Saucedo, in households in which at least one member of the family earns wages. Many more could be eligible: the government estimates one in three who could be on the program are not.

Obamanation!

Obama Takes BP's Cash like no other

By ERIKA LOVLEY
4/3/12

While the BP oil geyser pumps millions of gallons of petroleum into the Gulf of Mexico, President Barack Obama and members of Congress may have to answer for the millions in campaign contributions they’ve taken from the oil and gas giant over the years.

BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees —$2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

Well, since Obama shook down BP for 25B I guess they have to recoup some cash. Too bad it had to be the Russians. Time will tell but when have the Russians ever been honest and truthful about anything?
