If America is so great, why are 1 in 2 citizens low-income?

The Institute for Policy Studies reported there are 40 million

homeless Americans now, 30 million have no health-insurance

and 140 million can't cover basic-expenses. That means have

they have to choose between food or rent etc.

Do you still support the rich class at this point? Your thoughts?

    You lie like a rug.

    The nation-wide median income is over $61K. That means 50% of our working households makes more than that amount. That's hardly 1 in 2 in low income.

    "If you're a member of the middle class, chances are things are looking up. Median household income reached a record $61,372 in 2017, up 1.8 percent from $60,309 in 2016. This marks the third year in a row that median household income has gone up, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which compiled the data." [https://www.cnbc.com/2018/.../median-household-inc...

    While the homeless is too high, it's hardly 40 million. Not even close to that. Check this out:

    "According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Annual Homeless Assessment Report, as of 2017 there were around 554,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night, or 0.17% of the population. Homelessness emerged as a national issue in the 1870s." [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homelessness_in_the_...

      One more time, Bob, "...might be even better than [the Census Report] suggested."

    Yes, I do. Without the rich class, everyone would be between poor and destitute.

    Despite what Republican imbeciles think, jobs are scarce, and the ones which are available do not pay a living wage. So people take on two or three jobs when it is possible, and Republicans pretend the economy is healthy.

    Fox News has reported a poll saying that 70% of Americans say the rich should be taxed higher.

    For years, we've been hearing "liberals" say that we have to tax corporations more. It's BS. Corporate tax is actually sales tax, because they pass their losses over to consumers. If you want to tax rich individuals, just do it.

    Our low-income is way better than other country's low-income.

    Try going to the Philippines. Take a look at Venezuela's low-income.

    Because the government steals 1/3 of everybody's income for a racket they like to call, "taxes."

    Fact: Your pay under capitalism are dependent on how hard you work.

    Fact: Poor people are poor because THEY DON'T WORK.

    Okay lets put this in perspective: Millions of illegals take away job opportunities for the couch potatoes. They do the jobs that these potatoes refuse to do. Build that damn wall.
