Poverty Rating Chart

The stats came out today and so did some shocking numbers. 1/6 of Americans are in poverty! That’s very depressing.

The poverty rating has increased now to 15.1% and Obama has just recently came out with his new jobs plan. Great time for a plan to come out and I would be happy there’s a new plan if it was a better plan. This weekend I got the great opportunity to talk to Cory Gardner, Colorado‘s 4th District Representative in the House (Republican). I saw him at the Fort Collins 9/11 memorial and I was talking to him about politics and the deficit. Cory believes that “We still have a lot of work to do!” concerning thee economy and debt and deficit. I also asked him if he had to vote on Obama’s jobs plan today would you vote yes or no. Cory also believes that there isn’t enough info for him to vote and that it’s easy for Obama to say continuously pass this jobs bill but we as Americans need to know what the bill really is! Cory also said, “Obama is planning on raising taxes and I won’t do that!”. As you can see Cory is a dedicated Representative and he will do what he feels is best for his country and district!

The fact Obama’s jobs plan is raising taxes that just destroys his bill automatically. With poverty rating rising about 4% since 2000 that shows our government they NEED to do what they can to help out those Americans in poverty! So do you think that raising taxes will help those who are poor out?! Hell no it won’t. It’ll make it worse, and not only will it already hurt those in poverty but it’ll put more people in poverty. It’ll kill the free market and small businesses. I’m not saying reduce or stop taxing, but I’m saying to the government don’t be stupid and raise taxes. If you do that our economy will plunge SO FAR down and I don’t think that’s what we want to happen!

Before this is finished let me just say this, Obama and other Dems, DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT BLAME GEORGE W BUSH FOR THE RAISE IN POVERTY RATING! BECAUSE IN ’09 WHEN OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT THE RATING WAS AT ABOUT 12.5% STEADILY! AND NOW LOOK WHERE WE’RE AT! IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE… NOT AN OBAMA CHANGE!
