I done some research and did you guys know that Owsley County, KY is the poorest county in America? Wonder why the government won't give it some money?

Owsley County is the poorest county in Kentucky; the 7 th poorest in the U.S. Source Global Citizens Network

Clay County in Kentucky is the poorest county in the United States. It's followed by Owsley County.

If you try to research this issue you'll find Owsley County always in the ten poorest. It's based sometimes on the average individual income and other times based on household income.

Problem is no one in Owsley County honestly reports their income.

You hit the nail right on the head. Republicans will never do anything for us because they still win here even though they do nothing but carry this county in elections year after year. And why would elected Democrats help a place that consistantly votes AGAINST them. But I will be a democrat if I am the only one left.
