Reagan was able to hide most of his callous agenda, because poverty responds more to the economy than it does to govt programs, & the improving economy of the 1980s served to reduce the poverty rate even as Reagan slashed social programs. The 1990s were similar; the booming economy reduced poverty, countering the actions of govt as it tore away at anti-poverty programs through welfare reform. Welfare reform in 1994 came as the War on Poverty, long over, had turned into a War on the Poor.

This is so true! And it should also say, Poverty is a weapon of mental destruction!
