Poverty Stricken?

Check out the way the U.S. government now defines poverty: If you are married, living with your wife and two kids in a home with air-conditioning and a flat screen TV and have health insurance but you only make $37,900 a year, you live in "poverty."

Robert Rector has more here.

To sum up:

The goal of fighting poverty is no longer about meeting physical needs; instead it has been covertly shifted to equalizing incomes, or “spreading the wealth.”
Divorced from actual living conditions, the new government report on “poverty” is merely an advertising tool for expanding the welfare state.
No kidding.
