happy rosh hashanah from the bush economic team

trying to sneak in under the radar (or at least at the end of the weekly news cycle), the census bureau reports today that poverty increased in america for the second year in a row. the nytimes says:

the census bureau reported today that the number of americans living in poverty jumped by 1.7 million people last year, the second year in a row the number has increased, and that median household income declined.

it was the first time since the early 1990's that there have been negative changes in poverty and incomes in two consecutive years.

many democrats charge that not only is awol ruining the economy with his tax cuts for the sky box class, he's trying to hide the results of it. usatoady reports

for the first time in 15 years, the poverty report was released on a friday. that had prompted charges by democrats such as reps. carolyn maloney of new york and william lacy clay of missouri that the white house hoped to see the bad news buried in little-seen friday night and saturday news coverage.

awol trying hide something? nah, couldn't be!
