In spite of healthy performance on unemployment and household income, Oklahoma's poverty rate has effectively remained the same. That statistic, decried by some, is actually a sign of health given rising poverty nationally. Those who are doing well in Oklahoma aren't doing so on the backs of the poor. In fact, their economic success creates job opportunities for the poor in the private sector and funds government safety net programs.
That's why Obama's efforts to punish the successful won't aid the poor and will ultimately perpetuate poverty.
When low-income citizens have friends like Obama, enemies become redundant.
