Heritage Foundation: Poor People Aren't Really Poor, Poverty Is A Leftist Scam

"The typical poor child, in fact, lives in a house that has air conditioning, cable TV, a computer, three color televisions, an Xbox, a DVD [player], one or two cars [for] the household, [and] there's not any sign of food scarcity. Everything I just said comes from government reports, but the government doesn't publicize that information. The welfare state has a vested interest in exaggerating poverty in order to build bigger government bureaucracies to serve the poor, and the news media are even worse than the government." - Robert Rector, "senior research fellow" with the Heritage Foundation.
