Default 4 in 5 in US face near-poverty, no work

Exclusive: 4 in 5 in US face near-poverty, no work - Yahoo! Finance Hey our economy is in GREAT shape that's why 4 in 5 in US face near-poverty, no work!

Check that link:
Quote:
Nationwide, the count of America's poor remains stuck at a record number: 46.2 million, or 15 percent of the population, due in part to lingering high unemployment following the recession. While poverty rates for blacks and Hispanics are nearly three times higher, by absolute numbers the predominant face of the poor is white.

And some of the lefties . . .excuse me the politically correct word now is "progressives" ; wonder why we are disappointed with the President?

I have one simple question for you. How does the president of the US make jobs? Now Congress has cut government hiring to the bare bones, a previous president and congress gave our industrial jobs away with NAFTA. We have a congress now that won't pass anything this president wants but it is his fault. Perhaps you should start a business and hire some of the people that not only can't find jobs but when they do work less hours for lower pay.

Hey don't ask me- but Obama has said that things are great now and he has taken all the credit!

The President doesn't make jobs, the private sector does that quite well when not loaded down with excessive regulation and taxes. That is not to say we don't need any regulation. But under the Obama regime the solution to every problem is to expand the Federal government's regulatory authority.

Three coequal branches is a myth. The President is obligated to work with the superior branch, the Congress to get his agenda passed. But he'd rather go on endless campaign trips or vacations than sit down and work with Congress.

From Obama's speech:

Quote:
Add it all up, and over the past 40 months, our businesses have created 7.2 million new jobs. This year, we are off to our strongest private-sector job growth since 1999. And because we bet on this country, foreign companies are, too. Right now, more of Honda’s cars are made in America than anywhere else. Airbus will build new planes in Alabama. Companies like Ford are replacing outsourcing with insourcing and bringing more jobs home. We sell more products made in America to the rest of the world than ever before. We now produce more natural gas than any country on Earth. We’re about to produce more of our own oil than we buy from abroad for the first time in nearly 20 years. The cost of health care is growing at its slowest rate in 50 years. And our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years.

Thanks to the grit and resilience of the American people, we’ve cleared away the rubble from the financial crisis and begun to lay a new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth. In our personal lives, we tightened our belts, shed debt, and refocused on the things that really matter. As a country, we’ve recovered faster and gone further than most other advanced nations in the world. With new American revolutions in energy, technology, manufacturing, and health care, we are actually poised to reverse the forces that have battered the middle class for so long, and rebuild an economy where everyone who works hard can get ahead.

"Survey data exclusive to The Associated Press points to an increasingly globalized U.S. economy, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs as reasons for the trend."

So which one of these sited reasons did Obama Admin cause?

So in the end President Obama is just a hapless victim of circumstances unable to effect the change he promised, boo hop.
