Fifty years ago, President Lyndon Johnson used his first State of the Union Address to declare war. The enemy: Poverty. He said, "We shall not rest until that war is won." A half century later, no one is declaring victory over poverty. But has Johnson's war made a difference? Or does the nation need a new plan of attack? Join Mike McIntyre for a conversation on fighting poverty, Monday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
