The Poverty President

Barack Obama will travel to New York in late September to address a summit to spur the achievement of U.N. goals to combat poverty and the annual ministerial meeting of the General Assembly. What's wrong with that picture?

The number of people in the U.S. who are in poverty is on track for a record increase on President Barack Obama's watch, with the ranks of working-age poor approaching 1960s levels that led to the national war on poverty.

If the UN is looking for an expert on creating poverty, well Barack's the man for the job.
