Last fall I challenged the two democratic candidates for United States Senate to offer Oregonians detailed plans about how they would address poverty. Under President Bush's policies - policies supported by Gordon Smith - poverty has once again increased in America after years of declining poverty rates.
We need all our politicians to take the issue of poverty seriously. That's the kind of leadership we need. Steve is offering realistic goals that will make Oregon and the United States a more just society.
Where is the other candidate?
