1 in 6 in poverty

Mick Arran:

These numbers did not get this bad overnight or in the 10 months of the Obama Administration.

It took the right wing fully 25 years of dedicated effort and a full two terms of unrestricted ‘free market’ economic policy to bring us to the worst depression since the ’29 crash.

Even if Obama and his ex-Goldman Sachs advisors did a complete 180 and killed trickle-down in favor of an FDR-style NRA – which they’re not even thinking of doing – it would take years to get out of the mess conservative movement free market ideologues have got us into.

The price for the Bush Economy is turning out to be a lot higher than anyone but pessimists like me thought it was. That’s the reason Bush hid the numbers in the first place.
