I like the way you focus your post on poverty in the United States. Do you think that poverty here is worse than poverty in other countries? I don't mean the percent of people in poverty, I mean the state of the people in poverty. I think that people in the US that are below the poverty line are still much better off than people in many other countries that live in poverty.
