The Future is Now!

Posted by lboyd544 on May 31, 2011

More than 22 percent of Oklahoma children live in poverty in homes where the annual income is less than $22,350 for a family of four, Census data shows. Of the households that receive food stamps (SNAP) in Oklahoma, 58.1 percent have children under the age of 18.

I doubt these statistics are much better in most  other states.

As Congress works to control and re-affirm the federal budget and as other states try to balance the huge fiscal holes they face, let us remember that these children who are the future of our country will not only inherit massive debt if that is what we leave them, but they will also have developed less potential to address whatever their reality may be if we do not feed, cloth, and educated them NOW!
