Yeah, ..... right, ...... sure nuff.

What's more, the percentage of children living in poverty is essentially unchanged since 1964, and by some estimates, Uncle Sam has spent $15 trillion on anti-poverty programs over the last five decades. Indeed, as a percentage of federal outlays, such spending has soared by 286 percent since LBJs day.

I think there's no question that the War on Poverty that Lyndon Johnson declared 50 years ago Wednesday has made very important advances,

As evidence, Sperling cited dramatic improvements for African-Americans over the last 50 years, both in terms of their overall poverty rate and their high school graduation rates. In 1963, he said, 51 percent of African-Americans were in poverty and about 25 percent had graduated from high school.

Today, those figures stand at around 27 percent and 62 percent, respectively; but those are still far below the poverty and high school graduation rates for non-Hispanic whites.
