America’s Poor Problem – 15 Percent Live Below Poverty Line

America’s slow road to recovery is looking like it has more potholes than paved paths these days. The Associated Press released a survey saying as much this week, when it found that four out of five adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty or reliance on welfare programs for at least part of their lives. According to the study, the country’s poor remains at a record high, with 46.2 million, or 15 percent of the population, living below the poverty line. RT Producer Rachel Kurzius and Prime Interest Host Bob English break down the numbers in greater detail.

    That’s a lie, like we’re only looking at 9% unemployment, or whatever those cooked numbers are…..
    When the real numbers are closer to only 47% of working aged Americans having, importantly, a FULL-TIME job, which is what one needs to have any benefits and be able to support any kind of family………

    So only 15% are living in poverty, that’s totally disingenuous if not a flat out LIE!!!
