Can you state statistics Allison? It's easy enough to say they are Down, but how about some Facts. And when you state your statistics, please include your sources. I would like to know what is behind the numbers and I am fully aware of the ability of Statisticians to manipulate numbers in their favor. I like to understand what makes up the numbers and how the statistics are calculated.
I'd also like a definition of "Real Poverty". By the way, you do realize that particular statement is NOT what Obama is claiming.
