Political polarization, and poverty

(KPLR) – In Wednesday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, it’s political polarization.  That’s how some see our political climate today.  

I recently read an article about the poverty rate in Missouri and St. Louis.  The article reported an increase in the poverty rate which came to roughly $23,000 for a family of four.

I went on to read the comments from readers.  I couldn’t find one comment about a specific idea, program or a way of education that might improve things.

All I found were comments blaming one political party or the other.  

That’s too bad.  When you spend all your energy on playing the blame game, there’s not much energy left to problem solve.

I’m JB, and that’s “The Way It Oughta Be”.
