Bush Tax Cut Era Culminates In Explosive Poverty Growth

Yahoo Excerpt:
The ranks of the working-age poor climbed to the highest level since the 1960s as the recession threw millions of people out of work last year, leaving one in seven Americans in poverty.
In the video below, Chuck Todd asks Sen. Evan Bayh (D-INO), in light of the census report showing one in seven Americans living below the poverty line, if there is a disconnect in Washington debating tax rates for the wealthy.

Instead of showing outrage about the spread of poverty in the richest nation on Earth, Bayh explains his disconnect. He says fairness can wait, now is not the time to burden the wealthy.

Watch for it.
