How Much Money Would It Take to Eliminate Poverty?

How Much Money Would It Take to Eliminate U.S. Poverty? | Demos:
"Eradicating or dramatically cutting poverty is not the deeply complicated intractable problem people make it out to be. The dollars we are talking about are minuscule up against the size of our economy. We have poverty because we choose to have it. We choose to design our distributive institutions in ways that generate poverty when we could design them in ways that don’t. Its continued existence is totally indefensible and our nation’s biggest shame."
This article shows that there is more than enough money in America's government budget to eliminate poverty.

The money is there. But the political will is not. Not just USA.
