Clinton Administration

The Census Bureau Report on Income, Poverty, And Health Care Access

The Census Bureau report on Income, Poverty, and Health Care Access during the Bush Administration completes the historical record on a disastrous Presidency regarding these matters.

Median household income declined from 2001-2009; poverty, and particularly that regarding children increased; and the number of Americans without health insurance surged dramatically.

Under the Clinton Administration, all of these measurements improved dramatically, so the comparison really demonstrates just how disastrous the Bush Presidency was to America economically.

So to blame President Obama for the bad economy now is, of course, just political hype, as no one can expect a turn around from such drastic negatives overnight. It also makes one wonder how we can allow no substantial change in health care, and look in the mirror and say that it is acceptable to prevent change on the most crucial issue of the times we live in!
