War on Poverty After 50 Years: Conditions of the Poor in America:
Go off and read the report. It isn't that long and the graphs are stunning.
Poverty was in rapid decline in America when we declared war on it -- then it flattened out. (if you want more of something, subsidize it!)
Now it is lodged at about 15% of the population over a long term, BUT, we have spent more than 3x the cost of ALL OUR WARS since the revolutionary in this stalemate battle.
The basic reason is very simple ... single parent families. We have spent more than all the wars combined and achieved a funding of single parent families doomed to live in poverty. Big government in action!
