>The War on Poverty has barely made a dent in actual poverty<
I say BS! Look back at the ‘poor’ in the 50’s 60’s and witness their lifestyles, it is nothing compared to the ‘poor’ of today.
Due to being subsidized a vast number of the ‘poor’ eat, drink, drive and sleep in better accommodations than I who is just a blue collar kinda guy who pulled his own weight to get where I am.
Don’t get me wrong, I have a very compassionate heart with some liberal strings attached but feeding this beast without proper oversight only produces more ‘poor’.
No doubt. You want to see “poor”, just take a trip to Haiti or some other 3rd world place.
Why can’t we ever raise those people out of the bottom quintile!
We’re the richest country in the world!
We should be able to help out those in the bottom 20%!
