Well it looks like things are actually getting worse instead of better.

The Associated Press conducted its own survey and found a consensus of economists and think tanks and others.
It seems they are all agreeing that the poverty level is rising.

Possibly to new highs since the 1960's !!!

What have the incumbent elected officials been doing for the last 3 1/2 years anyway ???

It looks like nothing has had a positive impact on the majority of citizens !!

WASHINGTON
The ranks of America's poor are on track to climb to levels unseen in nearly half a century, erasing gains from the war on poverty in the 1960s amid a weak economy and fraying government safety net.

Census figures for 2011 will be released this fall in the critical weeks ahead of the November elections.

The Associated Press surveyed more than a dozen economists, think tanks and academics, both nonpartisan and those with known liberal or conservative leanings, and found a broad consensus: The official poverty rate will rise from 15.1 percent in 2010, climbing as high as 15.7 percent. Several predicted a more modest gain, but even a 0.1 percentage point increase would put poverty at the highest since 1965.

"US poverty on track to rise to highest since 1960s",

while obesity is on the rise.

Bernie Taupin had it right in '75 when he wrote "Times are changing, now the poor get fat"

Maybe because their terrible diet is based on the most affordable food? Funnily enough those foods are high in fat...

Can't see the woods for the trees.

Yah, ALL of them.
This isn't about Obama OR Romney, Republican OR Democrat.
They're both pawns for the elite.
If we want to get our destinies back in our hands, it's time to root out all of the corrupt pawns who have made money for the Fed and banks.
The only way to do that is to actually know who you're voting for.

I still have very little faith in the people who vote.
As long as the majority are still blind, change won't happen.
In fact, I still have a horrible feeling that it's either going to come down to one of the worst civil wars in the history of mankind or a complete military state ending with the agenda of the NWO in complete working order.
