Equal Time with Martha Burk

In January 1964 President Lyndon B. Johnson announced the War on Poverty. Much has changed, but much has stayed the same.  Did we win or lose the War on Poverty announced in Lyndon Johnson's State of the Union address in 1964?  Poverty is down, but not by much, and we seem to be getting stingier, not more generous with the poor among us.  So was Johnson's domestic war worth it?  (Contains audio of Johnson's speech as part of the  2 1/2 minute commentary.)
