    Poverty Isn't Just in City Ghettos; It's the Land of Picket Fences, Too
    Aug. 13, 2013
    By EMILY DERUY

    Poverty is often associated with inner city ghettos, fenced-off projects, or neighborhoods ridden with vice and crime. But the fastest growing poor population actually resides in the land of minivans, picket fences, and big box stores: suburbia.

    According to a recent Brookings Institution analysis, major metropolitan suburbs became home to the largest and fastest-growing poor population in the country in the 2000s. Poverty levels increased in nearly every congressional district in the nation, hitting Republican and Democratic districts alike.
    ================================================
    like I said before, under Obama the rich are getting richer...and the middle class is being destroyed...

    the only jobs he's creating are low paying...like retail
