I think it is the religious groups (ie. christian churches and the like) who are supposed to take care of the poor and not the government) Although it looks like churches are more concerned with building buildings then helping people.unless of course, America is a Christian nation...then it needs to uphold the Christian value of taking care of the poor.==============================================But....it's the government that is funding a lot of the Christian Charities. Here's just one...........http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catholic_CharitiesCatholic Charities received a total of nearly $2.9 billion from the US government in 2010. In comparison, its annual revenue was $4.67 billion. Only about $140 million came from donations from diocesan churches, the remainder coming from in-kind contributions, investments, program fees, and community donations.
