you were the one who pulled the food stamp act into the discussion, which is directly related to the failed war on poverty... I mean, did you even bother to read the article? I’m guessing not, since you think you know everything lol
I did read the article it is an opinion piece with selected facts.
Ending poverty is not like landing on the moon as economies don't have a stated goal, they are fluid and cyclical. The whole article is nonsense and anyone with a little knowledge of our economy since 1967 could easily see that.
Still, if you're going to be poor this is the place to be poor.
