“Housing Secretary Ben Carson said in an interview released Wednesday that poverty is a “state of mind,” according to The Washington Post.

“I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind,” Carson told Armstrong Williams in an interview that will air on SiriusXM Wednesday night. “You take somebody that has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there.”

The interview was recorded during a town hall. Carson also said that if “you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”

This mindset, Carson says, is a result of bad parenting and government programs that keep people in poverty rather than showing them the way to lift themselves out of it.”*
