This, not that, is the real State of the Union

Jobs: Ninety-two million Americans are out of the workforce.

Health Insurance: Five-plus million Americans who had health insurance have now lost that health insurance. As many as 25 million more could lose their insurance this year. All of it due to Obamacare.

Poverty: Fifty million Americans now live below the poverty level, a number which has risen to the highest level in American history since the 1960’s as calculated by the US Department of Labor.

Food Stamps: A record forty seven million Americans are on Food Stamps.

U.S. Debt: Now stands at a first-time record of over $17 trillion. The national debt has increased by $6 trillion under Obama, surpassing George W. Bush’s eight years back in 2012 — after just three years and two months in office.

Energy: And as the cold grips America, energy costs soar.

Raising the minimum wage doesn't help the unemployed. Probably lessens their chances.
