I saw this today and I was shocked. Basically 1 in 7 people are at or below the poverty line. This is not a judgement against those who receive assistance. I know a percentage of people may be abusing the system and some are lifers that depend on the government like a child but I know the majority are people that are just down on their luck. I want this to be more of a statement of how far we have fallen. We the people need to stand up and demand we get our country back. The gap between the haves and have nots is greater then ever and if we keep going at this rate we are going to have a caste of super wealthy and the poor. No middle class, the back bone of this nation, just large soulless corporations and the working stiffs that they stand on. Small businesses are dying out, higher education cost are through the roof, and just try to find a decent manufacturing job. Things need to change and soon I feel we are at a tipping point.
