Latino Poverty Rate Climbs to 28%
Fox News ^ | 11/14/2012 | Fox News

Posted on 11/14/2012 7:26:13 PM PST by gotribe

While Latinos are gaining in political clout, they are also falling down the economic ladder, new Census numbers show.

Latinos poverty rates climbed to 28 percent after the census reconfigured its algorithm to take into account medical costs and government programs. The Hispanic poverty level rose after the government took into account safety-net programs such as food stamps and housing, which have lower participation among immigrants and non-English speakers.

Meanwhile, I saw a “poll” on Yahoo today saying that 57% of the loonies living in this country want to import more poverty with a pathway to Freeloaderville for Mexican Nationals. The jackasses living here are total morons. Like they say, a country just can’t have too much poverty.

Exactly. Hence the push for amnesty. This will re-enforce a second underclass for generations. And retarded Republicans, conservatives, libertarians support this.

Interesting, isn’t it, that Obama got 71% of the Latino vote,
and that only 72% of Latinos live above the poverty level.

Maybe when the US economy tanks the Banana Republics will look more economically attractive again for the illegal latino population to cross back over southbound.

Long ago I saw a video in psyche class in college where rats ran through a maze to stroke their pleasure center rather than think to eat and survive. Sort of reminds me of the blacks and Hispanics of today!

Echoing in my ear is the scream of the wild lady from Cleveland who wanted her 'Obama-phone'!!!!

Another non-White group that is poor and getting poorer. That’s when the Democrats swoop in and turns them into another dependency class. Oops, I meant another voting bloc they can depend on every election cycle.

Latinos: Come to America! We have fresh ghettos waiting for you! Come join your black brothers and sisters on the Democrat plantation. Leave your family bonds and morals behind, adorn yourself with the chains of dependence and welfare.

Mark Levin had an idea on one of his shows. He said that Republicans should encourage/vote for more immigration of Indian people and people from European countries who have skills to prosper in our country.

Yep. Nothing to do with BS like "comprehensive immigration reform." The rat formula is intact--appeal to greed and at the same time provide a scapegoat to allow the feeders to shift blame away from themselves. That way they can feel entitled and defiant instead of ashamed. Both sides of the formula, enticement and blame shifting, are necessary for long term success. The 'rats have been playing the tune for generations and are really pretty good at it.

They can deal with poverty because that’s what a great many know for generations. It’s a way of life like American Indians living on reservations. Plus they really know how to stretch a dollar. They could give us lesson when we are all destitute.

“They can deal with poverty because that’s what a great many know for generations.”

Go to the mall and see who is shopping; here in NJ it is Hispanics, and they use cash. They are a massive underground economy, branching out from landscapers to barbers, bodega & restaurant owners, etc. The poverty is an illusion, and their birth rate and diabetes “epidemic” exposes the lie.

Latinos overwhelmingly voted for obammy as did Jews, blacks, females, fags, etc.
Each of those disparate groups can kiss my hairy white ass.
Latinos in poverty? Eat cake fools.

Not a problem. I went to our co-op/thrift store yesterday, and the number of hispanics loading up their cars was unbelievable. Most of them had the seats and trunks full of groceries and items. They won’t starve between the government asisstance(legal or illegal) and co-ops.
