The authors of a Bookings Institute study have published some disturbing findings after their in-depth research into the income of average American families yielded startling results.
As reported by infowars.com:
Slightly more than one American household with children in every 25 is surviving on less than $2 per day of income from all sources. One quarter of that 4.3% (that’s 1% of all Americans with children) receive less than $1.25 per day. One third (that’s about 1.33% of all Americans) receive between $1.25 and $2. Another third of that 4.3% receive enough government benefits to be living on between $1.25 and $2 a day. A tiny 0.1% of that 4.3% are even surviving somehow on “Negative income & benefits.”
A chart illustrating these disturbing percentages can be found below.
We often hear the statistics born in far off countries of individuals living below the poverty line. In the past, we have taken comfort in knowing that this occurs far from home. In Obama’s America, we are slipping deeper and deeper into economic depression, the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades.
