Census figures released in September 2012 reveal the largest number of persons counted as poor in the 53 years of poverty measurements. One out of five children and one out of seven adults are living in poverty. That is 46.2 million people living in poverty 15 percent for all Americans and 21.9 percent for children. Seems like the wrong time to reduce food assistance to me.
