Census on Obama’s 1st Term: Real Median Income Down $2,627; People in Poverty Up 6,667,000; Record 46,496,000 Now Poor
During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to data released today by the Census Bureau.

The record total of approximately 46,496,000 people in the United States who are now in poverty, according to the Census Bureau, is more than twice the population of Syria, which, according to the CIA, has 22,457,336 people.

In 2008, the year Obama was elected, real median household income in the United States was $53,644 according to the Census Bureau. In 2012, the last full year of Obama’s first term, median household income was $51,017. Thus, real median household income dropped $2,627—or 4.89 percent—from 2008 to 2012.

In fact, real median household income dropped in every year of Obama's first term. In 2008, when he was elected, it was $53,644. In 2009, the year he was inaugurated, it dropped to 53,285. In 2010, his second year in office, it dropped to $51,892. In 2011, his third year in office, it dropped to $51,100. And, in 2012, his fourth year in office, it dropped to $51,017.

At the same time the number of people living in poverty in the United States increased. In 2008, according to the Census Bureau, there were approximately 39,829,000 people living in poverty in this country. In 2012, there were 46,496,000. That is an increase of approximately 6,667,000—of 16.73 percent—from 2008 to 2012.

The number of people in poverty increased during three of the four years of Obama's first term--taking a slight dip from 2010 to 2011, but then rising again from 2011 to 2012. In 2008, there were 39,829 people in poverty in the U.S. In 2009, it climbed to 43,569. In 2010, it climbed again to 46,343. In 2011, it dipped to 46,247. And, in 2012, it climbed to an all-time high 46,496.

In 2008, the year Obama was elected, people in poverty represented 13.2 percent of the national population. In 2012, they represented 15.0 percent of the population.

The income threshold at which a person was determined to be in “poverty,” according to the Census Bureau, depended on the size of their household. If a person lived by themselves and earned less than $11,270 in 2012, they were considered to be in poverty. A family of two people was considered in poverty if they earned less than $14,937. The threshold for a family of three was $18,284, for a family of four it was $23,492, and for a family of five it was $27,827.
Hey libs,is this still Bush's fault?This clown in office said he knew how to fix all this by his first term.You libs are blind as a bat.

That is the results of the recession that Obama inherited from Bush when he took office. If the recession didn't happen in 2007, maybe those numbers would be smaller.

Kind of hard to stop that huge recession snowball the Bush created and passed on.

Not my president, I didn't vote for him the second time. I did the first time, because I was tired of the mess the previous republican got us into. And since I have never been a registered democrat, and usually vote republican, that definitely makes him not my president.

And yet here you are defending everything he does and slamming every single conservative response to that. Every single one.

If you are trying to kid yourself, you have succeeded astoundingly.

AHHHHH!

You voted for the DAMN CLOWN the first time? (If you would have done your own research, you would have known Obama was a liar and a clown.)

DUDE!!!! You are smarter than that! Come on! Stop falling for the BS, one thing is....we all need to learn how to be united as Americans! Being UNITED behind the Constitution and get rid of our current Gov't to re-establish a new one for the people!

I give you props for being brave and admitting you voted for the clown. It has to be hard living with that mortal sin for voting the damn clown in office!!!!

I kinda agree with Dennis, you are always defending the clown.

Vote tea party or libertarian...

I guess I should have voted for McCain then, right? How long after his loss did people start calling him a RINO?

Not defending, be pointing out how wrong your are on so many of your posts. There is a difference. Just like when I defended Bush by stating that he did not cause 9/11 to happen by an inside job created by himself and the government.
Vote tea party or libertarian
I remember when everyone on here was saying if you do not vote for Mitt, then your vote for anyone else is a vote for Obama. So you voted for him too, interesting.

McCain, should have never won the primary. It not only reflects the stupid process of elimination and manipulation of the process.

I did my research on both and I picked McCain VS Obama. McCain is almost right up there with Obama. However, I do not think he (MCSAME) would deliberately try to destroy our country. Obama is just flat out hitting the accelerator to doom.

No, I voted for Romney reluctantly because I can not help Obama in any way or shape.

Thats a very good point.

Credit to you for that one.

However, not many knew how bad McCain would get.

On the other hand, anyone who was paying attention could see how bad the Obummer would get. That was well before his first term. Thats the one where YOU voted for him by your own admission.

Once again, a republican fooled by the fools.

McCain turned into a democrat,so why is that so bad for the liberal democrats?

Thats why Ron Paul , Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee were the better choices anyway.

I think 'Big Brother' ultimately determines who is running the show in the media anyway and 'Big Brother' keeps the people divided so we have less of a say.

It reflects the stupidity of the republican voter and nothing more. You picked him, deal with the consequences if you can.

Ron Paul has been my choice for a long time.

No it doesn't. It does reflect the stupidity and desperation of the American voter for taking advantage of the "Free Sh#t" offered up easily and wiingly while doing everything they can do in Washington DC to break down the American economy by sucking billions out if the economy and moving it to the government to distribute as they choose instead of cutting the size of government and letting the private sector fix itself. That's exactly what would happen if government got out of the way.

That plus the 2 million less republican voters that did not go to the poll at all. The facts are in the numbers, 2 million less republican voters plus a lot of votes going to 3rd parties.

I voted for Ron Paul in 2012.
instead of cutting the size of government
No president has cut the size of the engorgement in many many years. Both sides have created more and more government agencies. No one will ever cut the size of this government, it will continue to grow.

so voting for ron paul in 2012 after you voted fro an incumbent is just like voting for the incumbent.Nice politics....not

No president has doubled the national debt in a single term either,so whats your point?
Remember said he was going to cut the deficit in half in his first term and he just spewed the same words a few hours ago at a Ford planet in kansas city and all the minions clapped as if they had forgotten he said the very same thing in 2008. Idiots!

It took Bush 2 terms to do that. And when Reagan was president he stepped in he took it from just under a trillion and when he left, he gave us a debt of over 2.75 trillion.

And since it was 11 trillion when Obama took over in 2009 and it is at 17 trillion now, I do not see how he doubled the national debt.

In other words, every president has increased our debt.

09/30/2012 16,066,241,407,385.89
09/30/2011 14,790,340,328,557.15
09/30/2010 13,561,623,030,891.79
09/30/2009 11,909,829,003,511.75
09/30/2008 10,024,724,896,912.49
09/30/2007 9,007,653,372,262.48
09/30/2006 8,506,973,899,215.23
09/30/2005 7,932,709,661,723.50
09/30/2004 7,379,052,696,330.32
09/30/2003 6,783,231,062,743.62
09/30/2002 6,228,235,965,597.16
09/30/2001 5,807,463,412,200.06
09/30/2000 5,674,178,209,886.86
so voting for ron paul in 2012 after you voted fro an incumbent is just like voting for the incumbent.Nice politics....not

He doubled a debt that was only a trillion?this guy doubled a debt that was 8 trillion.Can you even do the math?
IT took 43 presidents to get to 8 and only one to double all the previous presidents debt.dummy
Who did you vote for in 2008 and 2012 if you don't mind me asking?
McCain in 08 and Romney in 2012 either one would have been a better choice than the current clown in office.
And that was one of the reasons I did not vote for him.
So you were for him before you were against him? jeesh atleast stick by your man like all the other sheep and dont leave when he shows his tooshy.
