Obama’s America: poverty skyrockets, yet press yawns
Posted by Laura
During the Reagan years, the media accused conservatives of not caring for the poor, lacking compassion for the less fortunate. Fast forward 3+ decades as the ranks of the poor balloon under Obama’s leadership, as joblessness ravages the young and minority communities hardest. The blame is never squarely placed on his shoulders. It is always someone else’s fault–Boehner, McConnell, or Fox News. This is an appalling lack of accountability for a man whose idea of sacrifice is a 5 percent pay cut as he spends millions to golf with Tiger Woods. And we the people are paying dearly.
