A quick review of yesterday's biggest news story in the USA: Well over 51 million AMERICANS are LVIING in POVERTY

By Kevin Anthony Stoda


"Census: 48 Million Americans Now in Poverty" and was in Democracy Now yesterday,

Newly released census data indicates that the number of Americans living in poverty is millions higher than previously known. Under a new revised census formula, one in six Americans, or 48 million people, lived in poverty last year. The census shows a growing number of people over the age of 65 who are struggling in poverty due to rising medical costs."

Believe me and David DeGraw, there are even more impoverished Americans than that.

This news from yesterday in the USA is not new "news". The numbers and undercounting have been going on for years. Check out this older article:

Moreover, that older article noted,"So the Census poverty rate increase of 3.8 million people will put the 2009 National Academy of Science (NAS) number at a minimum of 51.2 million Americans. And if the margin of discrepancy is equivalent to the 7.6 million of 2008, we are looking at a NAS number of at least 52 million people for 2009."
