Things will only get worse under this madman occupying the White House. But both parties deserve blame for decades of declining standard of living for the 99 percent:
Americans born into poverty are more likely than ever before to stay that way, according to a United Nations report on poverty and inequality in the US.
“The United States, one of the world’s richest nations and the “land of opportunity,” is fast becoming a champion of inequality,” the report concluded.
The Trump administration has slammed the UN report, arguing the organization should instead focus on poverty in the third world.
…More than 5 million Americans live in third world conditions also known as “absolute poverty,” according to the report.
In Lowndes County, Alabama, the report found residents lacked basic sewage systems. Unable to afford a septic tank some people constructed their own homemade sewerage lines using PVC piping.
The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s.
While the issue is not new, the problem is becoming more dire under the Trump administration according to the UN.
