American poverty revealed: 1 in 7 Americans live in poverty

The BBC carries the details here. It makes for depressing reading. Poverty has not only risen during President Obama's first term: it has been rising for at least the last three years.

Itis incredible that the world's most wealthy country can also have so many poor. Those who think that the rich-poor divide is not a problem in the US should think again.
