MSNBC: Just Give Poor People Money To End Poverty

It’s really just that easy!

(The Blaze) Is Melissa Harris-Perry–the MSNBC host who recently declared that kids belong to whole communities– stirring up controversy again?

On today’s episode on finding solutions to poverty, Newsbusters noticed that Harris-Perry’s colleague Chris Hayes appeared in a quick video clip at the end of one segment holding up a handwritten sign with his answer: “Giving people money. It’s actually that easy.”

The video appeared during Harris-Perry’s show, and Newsbusters’ Mark Finklestein was probably the only person who saw it, being MSNBC and their awesome ratings (sic). Mark points out

Perhaps Hayes hadn’t tuned in to hear Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute make the point that the U.S. already has 126 federal anti-poverty programs that spend $688 billion every year, with state and local programs spending another $280 billion. Almost a trillion given to poor people each year–with no significant impact on reducing poverty!

Liberals have been fighting the “war on poverty” since the 1960’s, and it seems as if their policies continuously make things worse, which makes Chris Hayes’ idea perfect for liberals. Perhaps Melissa and Chris could give most of their cushy salaries away to poor people.
