California Continues to Lead the Nation with the Highest Poverty Rate


For all of the hype over “Red State vs Blue State” one would believe that California has a low “welfare” population and state debt. The previous post points out how California is possibly approaching $1 TRILLION in state debt alone, and yet the US Census Bureau has bestowed another title unto California other than the winner of the Massive Debt plaque; the State of California also leads the nation with the highest poverty rate amongst all states and Washington DC.

California continues to have – by far – the nation’s highest level of poverty under an alternative method devised by the Census Bureau that takes into account both broader measures of income and the cost of living.

Nearly a quarter of the state’s 38 million residents (8.9 million) live in poverty, a new Census Bureau report says, a level virtually unchanged since the agency first began reporting on the method’s effects.

Yes Democrats – be proud of your heavy tax burden state, almost $1 Trillion in debt and highest poverty rate in the nation. SMH*
