Gee I must have my head in the sand I didn't realize the recession ended in June 2009!! I know Obama keeps saying we are turning the corner but I can't seem to find that corner he is talking about. Would love to hear from you on this subject. I know that quite a few people are upset since this article appeared. Wasn't the government just talking about a double dip recession in the last couple of weeks?? Wasn't there just an article that 4 million more had been added to the poverty level in 2009??
