Obama economy and Obamacare create more homeless kids, 2.5 million children, 1 in 30 American kids, 8 percent increase from 2012 to 2013, Increased in 31 states and DC, Record dropouts in labor force, Record food stamps
“One of the CBO’s most intriguing estimates is that by 2017 there will be 2 million fewer full-time jobs on the market than there would have been without Obamacare, and that figure could climb to 2.5 million by 2024.”…Market Watch February 4, 2014
“Nearly half of U.S. companies are reluctant to hire full-time employees because of the ACA. One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.
Other firms will shift toward part-time workers. More than 40 percent of CFOs say their companies will consider switching some jobs to less than 30 hours per week or targeting part-time workers for future employment.”…Duke University Fuqua School of Business December 11, 2013

Smoke and mirrors will work for a while.
The 2014 elections helped reveal the truth.
The financial markets have been propped up by the fed.
There has been a disconnect between Wall St. and Main St. or more troubling, no street, no home no hope.
2.5 million children in the US are homeless.
There was an increase of 8 percent from 2012 to 2014.
Obama’s self serving policies are a big reason for this.
Record numbers of people have dropped out of the labor force.
Record numbers of people have had their hours reduced or could only find part time jobs as a direct result of Obamacare.
Record numbers of people depend on public assistance.

“America’s Youngest Outcasts reports on child homelessness in the United States based on the most recent federal data that comprehensively counts homeless children, using more than 30 variables from over a dozen established data sets.
A staggering 2.5 million children are now homeless each year in America. This historic high represents one in every 30 children in the United States. Child homelessness increased in 31 states and the District of Columbia from 2012 to 2013. Children are homeless in every city, county, and state—every part of our country.
Based on a calculation using the most recent U.S. Department of Education’s count of homeless children in U.S. public schools and on 2013 U.S. Census data:
• 2,483,539 children experienced homelessness in the U.S. in 2013.
• This represents one in every 30 children in the U.S.
From 2012 to 2013, the number of children experiencing homelessness annually
in the U.S.:
• Increased by 8% nationally.
• Increased in 31 states and the District of Columbia.
• Increased by 10% or more in 13 states and the District of Columbia.”
“Prevalence of Child Homelessness in the United States
Based on 2013 data released in September 2014 by the U.S. Department of Education, combined with an estimate of younger non-school aged homeless children in the U.S., the number of children experiencing homelessness annually is 2,483,539—or 2.5 million children, an historic high. Using U.S. Census estimates of the total population of children under 18 years in 2013, this represents one in every 30 children.1”
