  •  War on Poverty. Longterm consequences... (0+ / 0-)

    The problem with the War on Poverty was that the underlying plan was to outsource the social safety net to corporate. It made poverty profitable to Corporate America. It also moralized poverty.

    It helped people in the short term, but in the long-term it has pushed the US into more of a pull yourself up by your bootstrap kind of a country.
