Third World Poverty Levels in America  
How welfare reform in the 90s only served to increase poverty: http://nyti.ms/1UfM26H

"Recent research finds that because of welfare reform, roughly three million American children live in households with incomes of less than $2 per person per day, a global metric of extreme poverty. That’s one American child in 25. They would be counted as extremely poor if they lived in Africa, and they are our neighbors in the most powerful nation in the world."
