Comment:I am glad that there are websites out such as yours that are great informants on things such as the tremendous amount of poverty in America. I only have a few issues with your site though. "Poor" is a very relative term, relative to the culture. According to the rest of the world, America's poor are not really all that bad off. And why exactly are all the "poor people" in America so poor? Physical disability? Unwillingness to work? Family tradition? There are many factors that play into poverty and I think that there are many solutions. Those with disabilities get Government aid as the Government sees fit. Those who don't work get Welfare. Do you see where I'm going with this? So long as there is always wealth, there will always be "poverty". I am glad that you made this site and I sincerely hope that government officials see this and think twice about their budget. But I also think you need to consider all aspects of this issue before you post on the Web your opinions which are based on statistics. Good luck with the rest of your research! It is greatly appreciated.

Comment:Thanks! this was one of the first sights i was told to go to for my persasive essay i have to right for my 10th grade language arts class. and part of the speech is statistics and i was suppose to have 5 for my paper on the topic i chose and i found way more. i know its true i've seen it but its a lot more devistating when you read about all there is in the US instead of just a pice of it!
