Recently, the Census Bureau released a new report showing that the poverty rate in America has risen to a staggering 14.3 percent. In addition, we now have roughly 10% of the American workforce unemployed, and that doesn’t include the numbers of people who are no longer receiving unemployment benefits or who have quit looking for work. And in spite of the Republicans’ claims that the Democrats are not doing enough to create jobs, the Senate passed a bill last week that would make billions of dollars available to small businesses to create more jobs for working Americans. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. discusses this bill, as well as the Senate’s other efforts to decrease the number of unemployed Americans, with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.
