Sure...the War on Poverty was working just fine. Until Conservatives took over in 1980 and had to put a stop to that because it was undermining their argument that government is the problem. So Conservatives got elected and proved government is the problem by virtue of their shit policies. I see the pverty rate dropping like a rock during and after the Great Society Legislation. Then it shoots upward beginning right when Reagan was sworn in and doesn't return to the pre-Reagan rate until the end of Clinton's term before shooting back up again, thanks to Bush the Dumber and the Conservative know-nothings.
