The U.S is one of the richest countries in the world but poverty is aplenty. I was in New York, Manhattan area, and I could not walk a street without being accosted by beggars. These beggars don't ask for money, they demand it. If you don't give them a quarter or 50 cents some may spit on you.
George W. Bush spent $2 trillion, trillion with 't', imagine how many people could have been fed with that money and provided shelter.
