Poverty kills United States children


This video is called Child Poverty Has Risen to 16 Million in the United States of America.

Another video from the USA which used to be on the Internert used to say about itself:

When it comes to Americans without health insurance, many of them are children. But in a surprising twist, many of those uninsured children are from families where at least one parent does have health insurance.

Here’s a somewhat surprising result from the new Fox News poll. Asked which president is “more responsible for the current state of the economy,” only 18 percent say President Obama. Fifty-eight percent say former President George W. Bush. Nine percent blame both of them.
