In this clip, Herman Cain shares some statistics that contradict the unrestrained optimism of last night’s State of the Union address.

To name a few:

The job market still faces a gaping hole. From 2008-2010, 8.7 million jobs have were lost, and we’re still 1.2 million jobs short on the recovery front.

The poverty rate remains high. We have more people in poverty today than we did in 1965 — around 47,000,000. Nearly 7,000,000 of those have happened since President Obama took office.

Record number of Americans are on food stamps, over 19,000,000 have joined since 2008.

7.8 million Americans working part-time would like to work full-time.

The median income of households has dropped. In 2008, the real median income of household was $53,600. Today, it stands at $51,000.

Family healthcare premiums have increased $3,600 under President Obama.

After 5 years, the National Debt sits at 17 trillion dollars. More than 6.6 trillion has been added since President Obama took office.

Much of this data and more can be found in this Republican report and this article recently featured on Rare.
