Poverty and the welfare state in America

"Maybe government just needs to spend more, you say? To put it in perspective, $1 trillion amounts to over $20,000 a year for every poor person in the United States - more than $60,000 for every poor family of three. As Tanner points out, since the poverty line for a family of three is $18,530, you'd think that America would have licked this problem by now.

But it's not about how much money is spent, but rather how much is misspent, with 126 different programs administered by seven different cabinet agencies and six independent agencies."
