Conservatives will be really irritated to read this:
Data from the Department of Energy and other agencies show that the average poor family, as defined by Census officials: ● Lives in a home that is in good repair, not crowded, and equipped with air conditioning, clothes washer and dryer, and cable or satellite TV service. ● Prepares meals in a kitchen with a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave as well as oven and stove. ● Enjoys two color TVs, a DVD player, VCR and — if children are there — an Xbox, PlayStation, or other video game system. ● Had enough money in the past year to meet essential needs, including adequate food and medical care.
Just imagine how I feel. I wish I was this "poor". I don't even need all of those things. I can live without the DVD player, the Xbox, I don't need two T.V.'s. Heck I have been living without it for months now. I don't need a coffeemaker either.
