Three million more poor in three years

What a damning indictment of PAN and Calderón's social and economic policies: According to CONEVAL, there are now 3.2 million poor in Mexico when compared with 2008. Mexico's indigenous are particularly hard hit:
Of the indigenous population, 40.5% have nutritional deficiencies, exacerbated by their condition of marginality and exclusion.
See CONEVAL's full report here.

Josefina Vázquez Mota is running, much like Calderón in 2006, on a campaign of continuity with PAN's policies. For the poor of Mexico, that is a terrible choice.
