    Nikki Haley: 'Ridiculous' for UN to analyze poverty in America

    “At the end of the day, however, particularly in a rich country like the United States, the persistence of extreme poverty is a political choice made by those in power,” the report reads. “With political will, it could readily be eliminated.”

    The report said American democracy "is being steadily undermined" and provided several suggestions for how to alleviate poverty in the U.S. The recommendations said American citizens must realize taxes "are in their interest" and that the U.S. "must recognize a right to health care."

    ------------------

    Under Trump, the income gap is growing faster than ever before. Which was the Republicans goal when they elected Trump.

    Wow, 40 million Americans live in poverty. Wanna bet the majority are Trump voters?

    But I thought the economy was so wonderful.

    It is. If you're a millionaire. Sadly, most of Trump's voters aren't millionaires.

    Sounds like a bunch of foreign commies trying to influence our elections and turn us into commies.

    Most of the countries in the UN have no room to talk about the US. We have more opportunities than they do. How many refugees want to move to the Middle East???

    That’s what dean does...repeat foreign attacks on the US. Day in and day out. He has never seen a foreign attack on the US he didn’t support.
    We voted to end foreign rule in 2016.

    ..but how can that be after more than 5 decades, trillions of dollars spent and the creation of gigantic federal welfare state in support of the "war on poverty"?

    Apparently the expansion of state power isn't the magic fairy dust solution to all problems that the progressive gub'mint worshipers think it is, huh?

    Venezuela didn’t like having 40% poverty. They embraced socialism and now have 100% poverty.

    Haley is full of shit, just like her master. Poverty exists to a significant degree in the U.S. Why not analyze it? Is there something to be afraid of?

    Why would we have to have food pantries, why would we have people living in run-down and unsafe housing, why would America's school children have to rely on food provided at their schools, why do Americans have no access to health care, why do we have widespread opioid addiction, if this is such a heavenly place? Poverty is all over this country, in the cities and in the rural areas. Why run from it or try to conceal it?

    Those are GOP goals. Most of those food pantries and people living in run down and unsafe housing are Trump voters. Because for them, it's about race. Even if you have no running water, no electricity and you get your heat from cutting down trees and you aren't even sure if you will eat tomorrow, the most scary thing there is, is a black person you don't know, don't talk to and have no contact with.
    Trump plays that song even better than the rest of the GOP leadership.

    Blacks will kill you.
    Hispanics will take your jobs.
    Gays will molest your children.

    These montra's keep the base voting GOP.
