Americans brag about their country so why is there poverty?

Here in Brazil there is poverty but most of the time it is because the government helps so much and they get comfortable.

    I missed the main road in Arizona once and I was appalled to see the poverty there. My partner came to a conference in Washington DC, got bored with the big hotel and went to explore. He said there were slums two blocks away from the hotel. There certainly is poverty in the US.

    The US financial system is one where the government simply has all the money that it wants printed when it wants it. This system is called infinite-debt! The USA is a conservative country, so the media don't report this! The poverty in the US is because the US is rotten to the core!

      If all that is free in Brazil then everyone should be healthy and have a MBA or PHD and there would be no poverty .
