Most families are so poor because most money went to

money should be donated to us. WE ARE WHAT MAKE
AMERICA (if you have anymore info please reply).
America is one of the greatest and wealthiest in the world...I think that it's
great that USA gives foreign aid to impoverished nations...especially one that was just bombed by the USA!
Most money from the USA would not go to Iraq aid, but most tax dollars are spent on American soil, on improving the nation...whether that is military,
public services or what not.
I know what it feels like to be poor. America, everywhere I read, it says that this is the country where you can make it big...sometimes that's all
we have to believe in, if we can't believe in ourselves.
In one of the richest nations in the world, it may not be worth it to rely on American welfare money, if someone is able to work, they should. I think
most people see that if you depend too much on welfare, the governments see people like that as lazy.
There will always be "poor" people as long as capitalism remains the basis of exchange between people.
