Question by amh: Do you think poor children have the same opportunities as rich children?
Does a child of a poor family who has to work through high school and college have as easy of a time getting into law school or medical school as the child from a rich/middle-class family? Is it fair to judge a poor child against a rich/middle-class child without taking into consideration the environment the children were raised in and the opportunities they were allotted?

They may not have as easy a time, but, they do have the opportunity.

Growing up rich, middle class or poor is not an excuse. There are many that have come from each group that have made successful careers and lives, and there are many who are in prisons.

We are responsible for the choices we make in life.

*EDIT* you have to love it, liberals thumbing down because people believe in taking responsibility for their own lives and choices, and that if you do apply yourself you have a chance at success.
