More than 1 in 5 (U.S.) kids live in poverty (U.S.A. Today)

A new Gallup poll finds the national debt tied with terrorism as voters' biggest worry. Health-care costs, unemployment, immigration, and global warming all lag. http://bit.ly/9sbXafOh, great, the "deficit hawks" are about to eat our livers again. Quoting that rich old liberal George Soros:
"June 10 (Bloomberg) -- Billionaire investor George Soros said “we have just entered Act II” of the crisis as Europe’s fiscal woes worsen and governments are pressured to curb budget deficits that may push the global economy back into recession. "
The "pressuring" comes from deficit hawks who - in my humble opinion - just don't understand that getting the economy going again with LOTS of jobs is the only way to start reducing the national debt. Cutting government spending at a time like this (or like in 1937) will screw the pooch big time.
