States see more poverty among children, unemployed –

States see more poverty among children, unemployed –

There's mention in this article that the "chronically unemployed are the legacy of the recession that started in 2007". I think the chronically unemployed as well as the increasing number of Americans living in poverty are both the legacy of U.S. President Obama. For those of you who voted for Obama back in November, 2012 here are some realities for you:

1. the number of Americans receiving welfare assistance and SNAP benefits(food stamps) continues to increase

2. the national debt, over $16 trillion dollars right now, is on the increase

3. federal government spending shows no signs of slowing down

 4. the unemployment rate in the U.S. among women and hispanics, both of who helped get President Obama re-elected in November, 2012 is on the increase

How's that "hope and change" working out for you?
