I read this today on MSNBC website:

"WASHINGTON — 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 (...) some 45 million people in this country, or more than 1 in 7, were poor last year"

I love the 60s and 70s but how sad is it to see that the U.S. has lost 40 years when it comes to wealth distribution... because this is the real problem in the U.S., there is money, but it is still way too much concentrated in the super-rich hands.
