Under the Obama administration, tens of thousands of families found themselves leaving the economic level of middle class only to be counted among those living below the poverty line. According to Cleveland.com, a very pro-Democrat and pro-Obama media source, they list the number of people living below the poverty line by year as follows:

2008 – 39,829

2012 – 46.496

Also in 2014, the New York Times, a very pro-Obama news outlet reported:

Fifty years after President Johnson started a $20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty, the overall percentage of impoverished people in the U.S. has declined only slightly and the poor have lost ground under President Obama.

Aides said Mr. Obama doesn’t plan to commemorate the anniversary Wednesday of Johnson’s speech in 1964, which gave rise to Medicaid, Head Start and a broad range of other federal anti-poverty programs. The president’s only public event Tuesday was a plea for Congress to approve extended benefits for the long-term unemployed, another reminder of the persistent economic troubles during Mr. Obama’s five years in office…

Fifty years after President Johnson started a $20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty, the overall percentage of impoverished people in the U.S. has declined only slightly and the poor have lost ground under President Obama.

Many Democrats try to blame the rise of Americans living in poverty on the economic recession which they blame on President George W. Bush, when in reality the recession was the fault of mortgage policies of President Bill Clinton. However, the economic policies of Obama, including his war on coal and oil, left millions of Americans unemployed and dropping from middle class to poverty.

Democrats continue to attack President Donald Trump’s economic policies, especially his tax cuts, however, Trump’s policies and tax cuts have been reversing the trend we saw under Obama, as reported:

More than 1.2 million American households moved to above $50,000 in annual income between 2016 and 2018, according to Census Bureau data released on Sept. 10, a sign of a growing middle class.

The data is a boon to President Donald Trump, whose platform is centered on a strong economy and promises of increased prosperity.

While in 2016, some 58.5 percent of households enjoyed more than $50,000 in total money income, the share rose to more than 60 percent in 2018. The median household income, meanwhile, rose by nearly 2.3 percent—with all figures adjusted for inflation.

The comparison isn’t quite apples-to-apples since the bureau implemented a new methodology in its latest report that somewhat influenced the results for both 2018 and 2017.

Still, the data bears out a middle-class expansion unseen since the 1960s. Nearly 30 percent of households pulled in between $50,000 and $99,999 in 2018. That’s up from less than 29 percent the year before—the fastest increase since 1968.

The important thing to note about this is that Democrats have promised that if they gain control of the Senate and White House in 2020, that they will end Trump’s tax cuts, especially those that went to corporations. If they do, there is no doubt that millions of Americans will find their jobs cut or their hours cut. Unemployment will again skyrocket which will most likely throw America into another recession, which could be worse than the one under Obama, and this is exactly what they want to do.

Why?

The best way to make their conversion of America into a socialist state is to create an economic collapse with more people living below the poverty level and relying on the government for help. Socialism has often used this strategy to enslave the masses and institute their socialist ideology that only goes to benefit the elite few. Remember this when you go to the polls in 2020.

  1. I knew from the beginning when I first heard Obama speaking about his goals that he was a Socialist and the actions he took proved his goal was to turn this country to Socialism. In order to do this, he had to destroy the middle class and take away citizens guns. He made headway by lowering the economic status of many citizens but he failed on gun confiscation. It is my opinion though that Obama did not have control but was under the thumb of George Soros who I believe was giving the orders as were the Clinton’s.

  2. I’m doing no better under Trump than I did with Obama. Its time for a change. Dump Trump. Sorry I ever voted for him.

  3. You’re misinformed and probably have no skills. Yeah, you want Mr Trump gone so you can get your free s**t !
