Why are Indian children still dying of poverty?

There was an AP story about infanticide in India, mostly young girls, and the question attached was "why, with rising prosperity?" One question immediately answered, the "rising prosperity" is mostly the Rich getting Richer, much like the Class War they "upper class elites" declared in America long long ago and are intensifying now. Having the top economic level, the "1 percenters" getting an even larger share of even an expanding economy means those in the 80% who have less income than it takes to actually survive, will have even less. A classic example of How Deregulated Free Market Capital works to destroy the poor for the profit of the very richest. And now, it's taking its bloody horrid toll on the children of the poor PEOPLE.

Glenn Beck might go blind— Karma?

Oh well, at least he has his millions in Blood Money gotten for being a Professional Liar on Fox. That will pay for adaptive technologies, therapy, training in how to survive with a disability... you know, the kind of stuff he and his fellow TeaBag ASSHOLES have tried to keep OTHER disabled people from having any chance of obtaining. The Slash-and-burn approach to Health Care funding that reached a fever pitch during the Reagan/Bush/Bush junior Regime. The kind of funding cuts and service cuts Ron Paul endorsed, fought for, loudly and proudly boasted of accomplishing. Kick the cripple when he's down, eh, Mr Paul, Mr Beck, Mr and Mrs TeaBag? The kind of Denial of Basic Health Care that killed Martha. Don't think, Mr and Mrs TeaBag, Mr Beck, Mr Paul and your entire party, that I'll ever forget that. Every time I see your Fat Smug Smarmy faces chanting about how people who are poor and disabled, poor because of our disabilities, how we don't deserve to live. That we should basically Curl up and DIE. Which is what happened with Martha.... Every time you smug smarmy pricks get together and condemn the Disabled to such a fate and say that GOD tells you to do it, I remember Martha and her final days and hours. I remember how the therapies that were in place, available but only to those who have money, the therapies that could have saved her life or made it somewhat more bearable, at the very least, were DENIED to her. I remember that every time one of your Brainwashed Zombie supporters tells me that "well, at least you have equal treatment in the Emergency Room" or "The Liberals LIE when they say that Poor and Disabled Americans don't have equal access to health care" when I know better. When Rush Limbaugh came close to telling the truth about his Emergency Room Care in Hawaii... and then said that everybody gets that kind of care. Sure they do, Rush... In HAWAII which has full on socialized health care that IS available to everybody. You left that part out, didn't you, Rush? And your Fellow Hate Freaks who equate surviving with disabilities to a Sin. Fellow Hate Freaks like Glenn Beck. Mrs Palin, so Smug and "I'm a good mom" with her son, oh how difficult it must be for you, having to raise a child with all the amenities and comforts and above all Access To Proper Health Care that you and your fellow TeaBags seek to DENY to other mothers and children who aren't as Rich as you. Such a kind and Christian lot, you are. All that steam you worked up over a Health Care bill that might just stanch the Rapidly increasing Money Hemorrhage and save Health Care, instead of allowing your Fellow Corporate Thieves to take away every bit of that, and still charge us everything WE have for it... Why not get angry about the ten-to-a-hundred times MORE money being spent on your Conquest of the world, or
