poverty in america

TODAY I WAS WATCHING OPRAH AND TODAY THE SUBJECT WAS POVERTY. AN EXPERT ON HER SHOW MENTIONED THAT MOST AMERICANS ARE 2 PAYCHECKS AWAY FROM POVERTY.... MEANING IF ONE OF US FOR SOME REASON OR ANOTHER MISS TWO PAYCHECKS WE WILL LOSE OUR HOMES, CAR, ALMOST EVERYTHING WE OWN. FOR AMERICA TO BE THE RICHEST NATION IN THE WORLD. WHY IS IT THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE POOR AND LIVE IN SUCH CONDITIONS. WHY IS IT THAT IN 2008 PEOPLE CAN NOT AFFORD TO RECIEVE PROPER HEALTHCARE AND EDUCATION. ARE WE SURE AMERICA IS THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY?
