In an election year, Republicans join the debate on poverty

Republican Senator Marco Rubio, a potential 2016 White House contender, stood in the Lyndon B. Johnson room of the U.S. Capitol to criticize what he said were flawed Democratic big-government solutions dating back to Johnson’s presidential tenure.

We know the Left/Democrat approach to poverty has been a dismal failure.
