    Why do people with money concentrate on poverty outside the United States?

    For example, Chicago beautiful city but it also has many homeless, many abandoned children, and so many angry young women and men that need help. Why don't the rich and famous focus on the poverty in our cities instead of going everywhere else. Help bring back America. Make America be prosperous again. We have to start with home. Don't adopt from foreign countries when you know there's American children that need help.

    Probably because their not really spending it on poverty, but really making more money & gaining more power for themselves..I mean look at Africa a country with endless resources, how long would it really take to sort their poverty out?..The rest of the world is only poor because of the west/east & middle east countries being greedy & power mad....They don't want Africa having our technology etc, that would mean another super power to fear for the west & east & middle east controlling countries..Their not helping them their robbing them, that's only my opinion....So they can't spend it on their own people, because then they would have to really do something to help..& i don't know about you but it doesn't seem like Governments, & Politicians are in the business of helping other people..Our's in the UK are only helping themselves, & quite a few we're sent to prison for it, but of course it was the people tht found them out, not other politicians.

      Dave36, I appreciate your opinion. I think greed is one of the biggest demons.  You know my son asked me; why can't the politician and the boss that let him do the crime and all who knew it pay an extra % to be applied where we need it.

      It is greed like you say, but once they have billions they then need power..Iv'e been promoted at work in the past from a worker/working foreman/supervisor, & i felt real power at the time..So just imagine what the President must feel like, power

    I think a lot of wealthy people focus on poverty outside the U.S. because there are already programs in place to help people in the U.S. Things like food stamps, medicaid and soup kitchens are just a few resources available to those suffering in this country (not to mention the multitude of programs offered by charitable organizations). Where as the poor in third world countries have no safety net at all. A place where clean water or mosquito nets are a luxury. I can understand the frustration seeing money that could help the U.S. get back on its feet, being channeled elsewhere. But on a scale of who is the most in need of aide, the third world is at the front of the pack.
