 Tomorrow , President Obama will host an event in the East Room of the White House where he will announce he will fight poverty with the first five “Promise Zones,” located in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky, and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. Per his tradition he will decorate the East Room with people from the new zones.

I guess he will be calling the rest of the country “If you like your poverty you can keep them zones”

The President first announced the Promise Zone Initiative during last year’s State of the Union Address, as a way to partner with local communities and businesses to create jobs, increase economic security, expand access to educational opportunities and quality, affordable housing and improve public safety.
