Where is the justice?

Proverbs 13:23 states that “an unplowed field produces food for the poor, but injustice sweeps it away.”
Where is the justice when governments like ours make fiscal judgements that further disenfranchise the poor?
AS Tony Campolo wrote:.”There are 2000 verses of scripture that talk about caring for the poor. And I don’t care what else you’re into, if you ignore what the Bible is really about – helping the poor and oppressed – you’ve missed the message of Jesus. The only description Jesus gives of judgement day is how we treated the poor. He’s not going to ask theological questions like do you believe in the virgin birth? It’s going to be the 25th chapter of Matthew — did you care for the poor, the sick? If I was an alien did you take me in?”
