Guest: Robert L. Fischer, PhD, Co-Director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, Case Western Reserve University More than 50 years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared "unconditional war on poverty in America." Today, the Trump Administration has declared that war “largely over and a success” in a White House report, which also calls for major changes to some of the programs launched by LBJ to wage war on poverty all those years ago – including food stamps and Medicaid.
