Poverty is Not What it Used to Be
No matter what the liberals tell you, no one starves to death in the US except by the act of some twisted, psychopathic parent or guardian, and it has been that way for 50 years.
Poverty in the US now exceeds the median standard of living in most of Europe. For a good understanding of the median standard of living in Europe, think high-rise dwelling, public transportation riding, cheap booze drinking, television watching, cigarette smoking, proletariat loser.
If that sounds familiar, do something about it. Poverty is not what it used to be, but it's still not very good.
