Inequality

From the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities' Off the Charts blog:  "Deep poverty — that is, the share of the population with incomes below half the poverty line — rose by a statistically significant amount in 40 states (including the District of Columbia) from 2007 to 2010 and fell in none, Census Bureau data released today show."

According to the census bureau, 385,117 Missourians lived below half the poverty line in 2010. 

Simply unacceptable.
