A new Census Bureau report, released after the election, finds that the number of poor people in America climbed 712,000 in 2011
The "official" report that came out in September 2012 had the number dropping by 96,000. So much for Obama's claim that things are getting better. Also the number of people getting food stamps has climbed more than 15 million — or 47% — under Obama. That's a bigger increase than in all of President Bush's eight years. Today, almost 15% of the population is collecting food stamps, up from 7% just a decade ago. Meanwhile, stocks are down about 5% since Obama's re-election. And according to an Ernst & Young study, Obama's tax hikes will kill 710,000 jobs.
