Breaking The Poverty Cycle


In the 1960 the working-age poor levels were so high it gave rise to the national war on poverty. The poverty level in the United States is even higher now, according to the 2009 census figures. The recession that hit the United States in the first year President Barack Obama’s presidency is a grim reminder that his stimulus packages aren’t working.

I can teach anyone to become a millionaire. I can teach anyone how to emerge from poverty. The problem is: can we have the poverty out of you? Many of the reasons poverty has persisted so long is in view of the mindset of poverty that pervades so many millions of minds.

More Thoughts About Poverty Cycle

This new report will be coming at an unfortunate time for Obama and his party; they have a few weeks before very important November elections, what is at stake, control of Congress.

The poverty rate increase will be another blow to the struggling Democrats to try and convince voters to prevent them in control of the Senate and House of Representives. The rate of poverty was 13.2 before they had control of both Houses; it’s expected to have increased to about 15.0 Percent.

President Obams has stated,’ The most important anti-poverty effort is growing the economy and making sure there’s enough jobs out here. ‘ He said he is committed to assist the poor to bring about a middle-class status. He said,’ If we can grow the economy faster and create more jobs, they everybody is swept up into that virtuous cycle. ‘ It all sounds wonderful but what’s he doing about? Everyone knows if you got more jobs to offer people and the people are working, there’ll be less poverty.

The six demographers, who were interviewed, said they closely tracked poverty trends and found in the 2009 consensus figures an increase in poverty rate. The new poverty range is anywhere from 14.7 To 15 percent. If these estimates are true, it means that 1 in 7 people in the United States are poor. That would be the highest single year increase since 1959, when the government began to calculate poverty figures.

Now, the relationship between the fear of poverty and the fear of abundance begins with complacency. We must end one myth now before taking a deeper probe into this matter. There is a myth that there’s people who wish to live in poverty. No one wants to live in poverty. Poverty means you’ve got no power to increase, very limited options, and no assets. When one lives in poverty, one struggles and has limited options.

Moreover, poverty means your basic needs are at threat, limited, or diminished. Even those who take a vow of poverty for religious or spiritual purposes have their basic needs met and therefore aren’t truly living in poverty.

The politicians’ will say they’re sadden by this new data but will again do nothing. That in itself is SAD.
