    Are you all aware of the "cycle of poverty" ? Sure, some people living in poverty are ambitious but there is also a percentage that is lazy. I believe this is the group that Newt was referring to. Acting perplexed by his comment really just shows ignorance of the problem that many poor people face. I feel qualified to speak to this as I was a Social Worker for many years and met many people involved in the cycle.
