The realities of extreme poverty in America
Recently I've been hearing plenty of talking points about how the poor in America really aren't poor, and how too many tax dollars are spent on people who have two TV sets, an Xbox and beer fridge.
Well, found an interesting video from MSN Money that shows the real truth about extreme poverty - 2.5 million children don't know where their next meal is coming from. 1.5 million households survive on $2 a day per person. That's near subsaharan African numbers folks in the richest nation on Earth.
