War on Poverty Sees More Hungry, Homeless

Interesting article on Reuters today. The first paragraph says:
"Despite a war on poverty that began more than four decades ago, the ranks of the hungry and homeless in the United States are increasing even as government funding declines, a study released on Tuesday found."
Why the "despite"? When are people going to realize that throwing money at a problem does not solve the problem?

I believe that there is ample evidence to show that poverty has increased in the US because of the "War on Poverty", not in spite of it.
