Census shows 1 in 2 people are poor or low-income – Lake County News-Sun.

Shame on the United States. Shame on us. Shame on us for allowing this state of affairs to arise. Never did I imagine, as a child of the 1980s, that poverty would reach such heights in these modern days.

Shame on us. Shame on us.

This is what has been missing for almost thirty years: holding all of our elected officials to account. I support this interruption as guaranteed by the constitution, and I like the way the President handled it. When Rep. Cantor faced the same thing at a recent meeting, the university president put a stop to the protest and forced them out of the room.
