the fed govt. spent 60,000.00 in poverty programs per family in poverty last year.
I work a standard of 2080 hours a year and make far far less than that just over 35k for a family with 3 kids and don't qualify for any freebies. Poverty is an uneven measure, if a family receives 60k a year in tax free benefits and subsidiues such as medical, housing, food etc. that raises them high above any poverty threshold in todays measure. o saying that poverty is rampant is an out and out lie with that kind of money expended. The new poverty is the family that consumes no entitlements or subsidies and having taxes out of their paycheck every month.
