The poor and the underclass are similar, but different in many ways, Being poor and having no money, can't compare to having a house with little money. The government has failed so many fellow Americans by spending more on wars and less in urban neighborhoods. The estimated cost for the war in Iraq was said to cost 3.3 trillion dollars. If everyone just contributed a small amount of their earnings, then there would be enough to provide food, shelter, and medical care to every American. Not only should we give in monetary value, but we need to start writing our politicians that we put in office, and demand that funds be released to increase government assistance. To this day, there hasn’t been any government that has given enough aid that could ultimately have those suffering from poverty to survive for more than a few days. Which made me think of the old saying “give a man a fish he will eat for a day, but teach a man how to fish and he will eat a lifetime”. If the government continues to fail us there will be no underclass or middle class. In the future their will only be poor and the rich.
In this video shows how the whole world is affected by poverty not just the United States its becoming worldwide. But However America is the richest country in the world and it shows how our goverment has failed us deeply.
