    I wonder how much Ramirez gives. Seriously… if he’s pushing an agenda it would be nice to know where he ACTUALLY stands on the issue.

    How can that be when minimum wage earners are making so much money after all their raises in the last few years.

    The poverty rate among children saw a sizeable increase, more than doubling from 5.2% in 2021 to 12.4% last year, census data shows. The increase in the child poverty rate comes after the child tax credit expansion ended on Dec. 31, 2021.

    ===

    And yet, they keep saying the Republican House hasn’t accomplished anything.

    The Democrats’ American Rescue Plan’s Child Tax Credit expansions were instrumental in reducing poverty rates to historic lows in 2021.

    And here we are again.

    The poverty rate for children in this country made a comeback, and then more than doubled, from a HISTORIC low of 5.2 percent in 2021, to 12.4 percent in 2023, erasing ALL of the record gains made against child poverty.

    Every single maga republican in Congress voted AGAINST expanding the Child Tax Credit, because the republicans say if the children are lifted out of poverty, the parents might be too lazy to work.

    I’ve said it before:

    Show me ANYTHING initiated by a republican, in the last TWENTY YEARS, that benefits somebody who is NOT RICH.

    And I’m still waiting.

    And yet, the GOP continues to undermine every government sponsored support for poverty. All at the same time pushing initiatives that drive the greatest wealth shift from the lower income groups to the highest income groups.

    A strong centralized Federal government is the single most efficient system for making sure aid is distributed fairly and evenly across a country as large as the United States. Providing basic care (food, medical, job assistance, etc.) is the surest way to curb poverty. So why does the GOP stand against ALL of that?

    The irony is that Trump portrays himself as a “man of the people.” The guy who actually has contempt for anyone who’s not “smart enough” to get rich. And if he gets back in the poor will be among the first casualties. Watch desperate people cause the crime rate to skyrocket.

    Overall, out of Americans for whom the Census Bureau was able to determine poverty status, 42.31 million lived below the poverty line (or 13.15% of the total population). Poverty rates were highest in the states of Mississippi (19.58%), Louisiana (18.65%), New Mexico (18.55%), West Virginia (17.10%), Kentucky (16.61%), and Arkansas (16.08%), and they were lowest in the states of New Hampshire (7.42%), Maryland (9.02%), Utah (9.13%), Hawaii (9.26%). — Wikipedia

    From “Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget” on the Republican Limit-Save-Grow Act that the House passed:

    “… CBO-scores-limit-save-grow-act

    In addition, the bill would impose stricter work requirements for Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) beneficiaries. For TANF, it would modify the baseline year for the Caseload Reduction Credit, which provides states with credit for reducing the number of individuals on their TANF caseload, from 2005 to FY 2022. For Medicaid, the bill would apply work requirements to able-bodied adults without dependents in the Medicaid program between the ages of 19 to 55, requiring them to either work, engage in community service, or participate in a work training program for at least 80 hours per month to remain eligible for Medicaid benefits. The bill would increase the SNAP work requirements age range from 18-49 to 18-55 and eliminate the ability of states to carry forward their unused exemptions from federal work requirements. CBO estimates these changes would save $120 billion.

    The Limit. Save, Grow Act would also rescind most of the $80 billion of increased IRS funding authorized in the IRA. CBO estimates this policy would worsen the deficit by $120 billion over the next decade by allowing more tax cheating and expanding the tax gap. Every President from Ronald Regan to Joe Biden has supported more IRS funding to reduce the tax gap, and it would be a mistake to reverse this policy. We strongly oppose including measures that would worsen the debt as part of this package. …"

    What happened to Reagan’s “Trickle-down” effect? By giving those tax breaks which benefitted the money class so well, wasn’t that supposed to form a rising tide that “lifted all boats”? Or was it just the yachts?

    LBJ declared war on poverty over 60 years ago. Looks like poverty won. RR was right—if you want more of something, you subsidize it. And we have an anti-poverty bureaucracy unmatched anywhere else in the world (and more poor people to go with it).

    in Georgia those without hospitalization and food stamps can thank the governor, wave the gas tax so he can close 14 hospitals in a rural areas, says he couldn’t afford to expand Medicaid and then goes away and gives two billion dollars back at $250 because we have too much money that he doesn’t know what to do with except help Georgins

    The reason childhood poverty took a jump recently was the refusal of extend the child tax credit (which had decreased child poverty by 46%).

    From the GW Bush institute: “When immigrants enter the labor force, they increase the productive capacity of the economy and raise GDP. Their incomes rise, but so do those of natives. It’s a phenomenon dubbed the “immigration surplus.””

    Red states have the highest amount of children in poverty.

    Of all states, Mississippi has the highest child poverty rate at 27.7%, followed by Louisiana at 26.9%. Washington, DC, and New Mexico are tied for the third-highest child poverty rate at 23.9%.

    Republicans are against any form of welfare except for tax breaks for rich people which doubled USA debt. If you want to help the poor, tax the ultra rich. Republicans want to take away SSA and medicare and food stamps and give the money to rich unwoke republicans.

    $19,660,000,000 That’s the profit Exxon just posted for Q3, the highest in their 152-year history. Your gas money went into their pocket. Excess profits are stolen money.

    Don’t blame Biden, look at the stats. Where is the money going? Who is profiting? Not Biden. Not 90% of Americans. And not the GOP, which continues to pander to the wealthy and big business. Private Equity accounts for 20% of our economy: That is dark, untaxed revenue.
