(USA) Poverty Line in the USA … who’s sinking below it?


Well, it appears anywhere between 13% and 17% of the population. This is the 'federal' poverty line we refer to and without a real and accountable definition of what many classify as the 'poverty line' then the final, constantly changing figures are difficult to compute. However, one thing is for sure ... the number is increasing. So, how can the richest nation ever on earth, with annual government spending in the trillions of dollars, live with such a fact? One thing's for sure, Boris and his mob of well heeled public school boys, on the other side of the pond, are working hard to catch up!
