According to Sentier Research, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Labor Department, since President Barack Obama took office five years ago, the median household income has dropped from $56,000 to $52,000. The number of people living at the poverty level went from 6.7 million to 46.5 million under Obama’s leadership; the greatest poverty increase in our nation’s history. The labor force has dropped from 65.7 percent of Americans working to only 62.8 percent of Americans still employed.
I think when Obama said he was going to “fundamentally transform America," he wasn't joking. How anyone can continue to defend this president and his agenda is beyond comprehension.
It is one thing to say you care about America’s future. It is another thing to actually step up and admit your policies are making things worse.
Just wait until Obamacare’s employer mandate kicks in next year. Does Obama own a fiddle?
