• 1 in 5 DC Residents Below Poverty Line

    BTS producer Ameera David reports from Anacostia, the backyard of the nation's capital. It's a part of Washington D.C. seldom seen by the public eye, and it sheds a light on many communities in DC which are experiencing the highest rate of poverty in 30 years. But ironically, these also happen to be the communities overlooked by the lawmakers who are just steps away. This is "taxation without representation" at its finest.

    The United States Census Bureau released its latest survey this week, "Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States. It revealed that median household income declined. The poverty rate was not different from the previous year, but did not go up, as it has since the start of the Great Recession. The numbers of those classified by the government as poor remained at record highs, while the gap between the rich and everyone else widened further. It's a grim story that hasn't received much media coverage. That's why we're here talking about it. Joining me to talk about poverty in America is Lisa Sharon Harper, Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners; and Marisol Bello, a reporter for "USA Today."

The central question that we're wrestling with in this text is how we can get serious in this country about not just reducing but indeed eradicating poverty. There are three things that we're clear about. Number 1, which answers your question, is that poverty has to be made a priority in this country. At the moment it is not a priority, not just for our government but for the American people. Now one out of two Americans are either in poverty or near poverty — that's half the country — so we are hopeful that our government and the American people in this election year will get more vocal about demanding that poverty be a priority. Number 2, there must be a plan to eradicate poverty. We keep coming up with these short-term Band-Aids, like the president's payroll-tax cut. A payroll-tax cut is a decent idea, I guess, but it only works if you're on the payroll in the first place. That's just one example; there are all kinds of presidents who, in years past, have tried to come up with these in-the-moment solutions to poverty. There's got to be a real plan. We're calling in this text for a White House conference. The White House has a conference on everything but poverty, so we're calling to bring all these experts together. Marian Wright Edelman has a plan. Jeffrey Sachs at Columbia has a plan. Catholic Charities has a plan. Thirdly and finally, whoever the next president is needs to get serious about selling the process to the American people for how this will happen. When the numbers are as significant as they are, I am certain that the American people are interested in a plan to get them out of poverty. The more serious that Republicans and Democrats get about that, the better off we're going to be."

The United States Census Bureau released its latest survey this week, "Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States. It revealed that median household income declined. The poverty rate was not different from the previous year, but did not go up, as it has since the start of the Great Recession. The numbers of those classified by the government as poor remained at record highs, while the gap between the rich and everyone else widened further. It's a grim story that hasn't received much media coverage. That's why we're here talking about it. Joining me to talk about poverty in America is Lisa Sharon Harper, Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners; and Marisol Bello, a reporter for "USA Today."

"Don't fall in." For over a century, the Anacostia has been a dumping site for numerous kinds of toxic waste and raw sewage. As its shores border neighborhoods hit hard by poverty, authorities have until now shown little interest in addressing its extreme pollution. A new and long overdue project to divert its waters and prevent waste overflow, however, could also force out the residents who have had to live with the Anacostia's filth for decades.
