More "Bad" News About the Economy......for the Donks

For years the economy has been chugging along, growing, doing great, except in the eyes of the MSM and Donks. They hate good news, so they ignore it or turn it into bad news. Well here is some more "bad" news for them, poverty is down.
(CNSNews.com) - The U.S. Census Bureau on Tuesday is scheduled to release figures on income, poverty rates, and health insurance coverage in America. Policy experts anticipate the numbers will show progress.


"Year-to-year changes in the poverty rate are usually correlated with changes in the unemployment rate," he noted. "In 2006, unemployment fell from 5.1 percent to 4.6 percent."

Besharov added that unemployment for single mothers also fell last year. "These numbers suggest the official poverty count will have also declined in 2006," he said.

Besharov noted that while 40 years ago nearly a quarter of the elderly were below the poverty line, "material poverty among the elderly has been [almost] eliminated," though "child poverty has risen."

Sharon Parrott, director of welfare reform and income support policy at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said: "It is pretty well known that of all the kinds of poverty we have, that is where we've had the most progress."

Oh, My, God! The Republicans can't be the ones that reduce poverty, the Donks are the ones that say they will reduce it, and have said for the last 40 years. So they will ignore it or claim credit for it. The Bush Tax Cuts work, but the Donks won't recognize that either.

So what will happen during next year's election is that the Donks will again lie about the economy, the unemployment rate, the level of poverty, income levels, and Bush's Tax Cuts, so the Republicans have screwed everything up, and they will be the heroes to save the day. And the MSM will back them by reporting it as such....again.

Good news in Iraq - bad for the Donks
Good news on the economy and income levels - bad for the Donks

Donks Playbook, page 128 - When the truth makes the Republicans look good and your party look bad, stump, distort and lie to get the sheeple to believe you and not the truth.

That's what will happen, just wait and see.
