Poverty in John Boehner's District

Post by Guest on Tue Apr 12, 2011 10:28 am

Indeed in 2009, childhood poverty rose over six points in the Boehner district to reach 19.1 percent , or 29,173 kids. Overall, 14 percent of Boehner’s constituents live below the federal poverty line of $22,400 per year for a family of four. Shared Harvest’s work has more than doubled—it distributed approximately 7 million pounds of food in 2007, and 16 million pounds in 2010.

Boehner has many constituents living above the official poverty line who are struggling with hunger as well. In 2010, the number of residents enrolled in the food stamp program (SNAP ) in the six counties represented by the Speaker climbed to over 152,000, an increase of over 47,000 people since 2008. Nevertheless, food stamps would be slashed under the House GOP 2012 budget.

I know I have written about this before but when I called to talk to his office about jobs and I relayed the story of one of his constituents struggles, the answer I got was 'some people will just fall thru the cracks'. John only cares about John. Period end of story. I will be tweeting this link and emailing it for a long time because he will never address it.

Our "great" Speaker of the House has been invited on several occasions to this food bank and has never responded, much less go there. Heaven forbid! He may see people in his district actually suffering!

It doesn't surprise me though, he didn't even know that 3 of his brothers were unemployed. Nice how he can just stick his nose up in the air and pretend this isn't happening. We are dirt to him and so are some of his own close family members.

He didn't even know his own 3 brothers were unemployed? That tells you what a self-righteous, self-centered snob he is-geez.
