Maybe this has something to do with the skyrocketing increase in poverty in the current Administration with the “number of people in the U.S. who are in poverty is on track for a record increase on President Barack Obama’s watch“. Now only are more people living in poverty, but more people are also sucking on the federal teat:
According to the Heritage Foundation’s 2010 Index of Dependence on Government, the number of Americans receiving a government check jumped nearly 14 percent in 2009 – the largest single-year increase since 1970 and 49 percent higher than in 2001. In May, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that the portion of personal income Americans received from private sector paychecks declined to a record low of 41.9 percent, while income from government programs climbed 17.9 percent.
Record increase in poverty? Largest single-year increase in people receiving government benefits in 40 years? Record deficits.
Who says the Democrats haven’t accomplished anything in the past 20 months?
