Fault of the Poor

Over and over again we meet good people who are under the delusion that there is little poverty in the United States, that we are all enjoying a high standard of living, and when presented with such pictures as [homeless people in their towns] they can scarcely believe them. "It must be their own fault. They are shiftless, they drink, [they are drug addicts], [they waste their money on the wrong things], they don't save their money. Everyone can get a job these days..." These are the comments they make.
