We all need to thank Philip Alston at the UN for his examination of extreme poverty in the US

Nikki Haley has called the examination ridiculous and politically motivated... but I am an American citizen who wants to say that the examination was needed and it speaks volumes that Nikki is pushing logical fallacies and distortions, such as saying the way out of poverty is with a job... What? That's a false dichotomy. And using non-sequitur statements such as saying the US has wealth and freedom like that somehow invalidates what the man is saying.

I'm sorry Nikki Haley, but I am siding with Philip Alston's studies over your lies.

Thank you, Philip Alston, for all of your work on this subject that our government and media doesn't want to talk about, and in many ways, extreme poverty is even 'functional' to our government.

1. Thank you Philip Alston for the work you have done on America's behalf!

Nicki Haley's statement calling the study "ridiculous and politically motivated" shows the tone deaf and arrogant attitude of the present so-called tRump administration. I am praying that Representative Barbara Lee' referral of the tRump administration to the International Criminal Court of Hague, Netherlands also produces results. If our congress will not do their job, we will have to rely on international legal sources to help us.
