If there is any "horse puckey" here it is the idea that 16 trillion was spent on the War on Poverty. Now 14.3 trillion total was spent to save the banks in America and around the World. Given the wealth of the banking class this had nothing to do with any war on poverty. The decision to save the bankers began under George Bush and continued under Obama. Both parties supported this madness.
Secondly Al Sharpton is no where near rich or wealthy.
