Does living in poverty increase ones susceptibility to another social problem?

 Is the U.S. addressing poverty in a better or worse manner?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Every study available, in conjunction with common sense, indicates that living in poverty puts one at heightened risk for other social problems. Poverty is a downward spiral from which many cannot escape.

It is difficult to say whether or not the US is addressing poverty in a better manner. Certainly the ACA has improved the access to healthcare for millions, but so-called "entitlement" programs have been stripped bare by hardcore Republicans in the House and Senate. SNAP in particular has been severely defunded.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
