Thanks, LBJ!

Your "War on Poverty" has succeeded beyond your wildest dreams:

#9   When LBJ’s “War on Poverty” began, less than 10 percent of all U.S. children were growing up in single parent households. Today, that number has skyrocketed to 33 percent .

#10   In 1950, less than 5 percent  of all babies in America were born to unmarried parents. Today, that number   is over 40 percent.

#11   The poverty rate for households that are led by a married couple is 6.8 percent. For households that are led by a female single parent, the poverty rate is 37.1 percent.
