No poor among you

Never noticed this verse before. I had always thought that “the poor you will always have with you.” But Deut 15:4 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Deuteronomy%2015:4%20;&version=31;) seems to imply that God’s plan in the OT would have included a society with no poor people. That didn’t seem to work out – it seems we always find a way to mess things up. I don’t really have a point here, just thought this verse was interesting.
