Barack Obama on Poverty

By MRCTV, Special for  USDR.

People don’t like being poor,” Pres. Obama declared at a “Conversation on Poverty at Georgetown University” yesterday.

And, one of the worst things about being poor is the time it takes, Obama said:

“People don’t like being poor.  It’s time-consuming it’s stressful.  It’s hard.  And so over time, families frayed.  Men who could not get jobs left.  Mothers who are single are not able to read as much to their kids. So all that was happening 40 years ago to African Americans. And now what we’re seeing is that those sametrends have accelerated and they’re spreading to the broader community.”
