    I remember my parents (in the 1950s) telling me: “Being broke is temporary, being poor is a state of mind.” Dr. Ben has correctly, and with great courage, stated the truth. Government programs that dis-incentivize people from working to become self-reliant are largely responsible for the culture of dependency that can be measured by the enormous growth of EBT and “disabillty” rolls during the Obama regime.

    A large percentage of poverty program benefits are directed to help children.

    Are you going to tell the eight year old who cannot focus on his schoolwork because of hunger that he should just change “his state of mind”?

    Not a very helpful comment by Dr. Carson.
