    The majority of America has chosen to keep the gravy train a rolling. The poor along with those who believe in bigger government is better, and those with special interests in keeping the liberal cradle to grave government in power, because it gives them what they want, not necessarily what is good for the economic growth and strength of our nation. The takers do outnumber the makers, and there are many who now do not expect that to change, ever again..

    Studies show that most of this poverty would disappear if people would get married and have children after they are married. Marriage is the best way out of poverty if it is possible.

    This helps to illustrate how bad off we are and do we really believe government is going to resolve this problem? America is in crisis and it is getting worse, not better. What do we do?

    Any wonder why they waited until AFTER the election to release the findings?
