Bush economic policies at work
Bush has had three years to turn things around. Instead, we're getting this sort of news:
More than a million Americans sank into poverty last year, an annual Census report is expected to show today. It would be the first time in nearly a decade that the number of poor rose two years in a row.What does that mean? It means that 32.9 million live in povery. And what's "poverty"? A family of four with annual household income lower than $12,207.
Congratulations Mr. President, your war on the poor (or "lucky duckies" as your pals at the Wall Street Journal like the call them) is progressing splendidly!
Oh, and about the report's release date,
For the first time in 15 years, the poverty report is being released on a Friday. That has prompted charges by Democrats that the White House hopes to see the bad news buried in little-seen Friday night and Saturday news coverage.Posted September 26, 2003 09:43 AM | Comments (87)
