U.S. Poverty Rate Rises to 12.7 Percent - New York Times

Some recovery!

Interesting that the poverty rate has risen each of the last four years, and income has declined most in the red states.

Of course, "the poverty number is still much better than the 80s and early 90's." Let's see, what party was in power during that time? The article goes on to imply that the economic boom of the Clinton years is the reason why poverty is still lower than it was in the early nineties.
