    The best way to fight poverty is a job. Create the environment that allows people greater access to jobs and the opportunity to create their own by way of a business.

    I believe many poor are misinformed and brainwashed by the media which pretends to care for the poor in order to fool them, like the Fox News pretends to be Christian and non main stream when it is in fact an international network itself. same with liberal networks such as MSNBC. same with so called public networks such as PBS - nothing public about it, so what if they get government funding and collect donations - it's management is never elected - they are all fraud. ANYWAY, try to think outside the TV box and ask YOURSELF from deep within - which is the best way to combat poverty, REALLY.... I will discuss my opinion later on.
    First there is very little poverty in the US and second I didn't see anything on the list about creating jobs.

    3. Better education.

    How we do that is certainly very debatable, but those 3 things would have more of a positive impact towards reducing poverty than just about anything else.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Of course, but education / skills training is essential in having the kind of marketable skills that you need to get a job that pays enough to lift you out of poverty.

    What kind of sheltered life do you live to think there is very little poverty in the United States? You ever been to the Delta? Ever been to rural Appalachia? How about many inner cities?

    Also, good jobs require skilled workers. You can't just create jobs and mandate some wage for people to earn. They have to have the skills to compete for those jobs.

    Not since 1990 or so, and that Commodity Cheese was good.
