Rocky Anderson on Welfare & Poverty

Justice Party challenger for President; former mayor of Salt Lake City


There is so much more work to be done onpoverty

Q: Final comment?

ANDERSON: What hasn't been discussed during these debates, nobody is talking about what's going to impact future generations the very most, and that is the climate crisis. We have to address this if we're going to really show that we care about our children and future generations. Poverty: that word doesn't even escape the lips of either of these candidates. This is a major problem in this country, greater poverty rates than since 1965. There is so much more work to be done.
