No Shit

But you wouldn’t know it from listening to the 2016 presidential campaign. Both Trump and Hillary Clinton's economic addresses focused much more on the middle class than on the poor, a New York Times analysis found. And transcripts of the three presidential debates show the middle class was mentioned thirteen times compared to just four mentions of poverty, the poor, or low-income people.

In ignoring the poor, Clinton and Trump have plenty of company.--EP

Why do politicians ignore the poor?  Good question.

Here is one SOB who needs to be taken out of the equation.
