Dear Log,

«Statistics released last month by the government census bureau show that for the first time in 10 years the number of people caught in the poverty trap has suddenly increased. Unemployment is up from 4.2 per cent in 2000 to 5.7 per cent last year. While the middle class shrinks, the numbers living below the official poverty line of $18,104 a year for a family of four has shot up to 33 million - from 11.3 to 11.7 per cent. That's the first increase since 1992.»

--"US in denial as poverty rises"

Interesting how people write things like "US does this", "US does that", when all they mean is "the US federal government, and the US news media do this, that, or the other".
