The U.S. poverty rate jumped to 14.3 percent in 2009, the highest rate since 1994, the Census Bureau reported Thursday.

It also hit the ranks of working-age poor at the highest rate since at least 1965.

The Census Bureau says that about 43.6 million people, or 1 in 7, were in poverty last year. That's up from 39.8 million, or 13.2 percent, in 2008.

dude things are coming apart i just posted US homes lost to forclosure UP 25% last month .

And so many posters here think getting the mexcians out will change what is happing and about to happen.
The ONE and only thing keeping the TITANIC aflot at this point is all the money they are throughing over bord to try and lighten the SHIP.
But if you look you will see the rats are all ready leaving it.

I agree with you one hundred percent. While the immigration problem is something that definatly needs to be dealt with, it will not help our economy enough to stop what is happening. We are getting close to something major happening, it went from sites like these predicting it for a long time to mainstream media not being able to cover it up any more because even your average person knows something major is about it happen. Best thing to do is prepare.
