    There is a poverty culture but most people experiencing poverty aren't part of it. They are down on their luck and making do over bad decision-making or other factors. They will get out but living with it at the time is made much worse by not having even crummy options for food.
    Yeah, they do. Part of the poverty culture. Lot of favors, trade and borrowing. People in poverty culture don't "get out of it". Not without great outside help.
    Options for food? got any idea how many Walmarts there are?
    Food banks? Churches? USDA programs? On and on.

    I wish you guys held the President to the same standard you hold Lady Marva.
    "I want to pause here to note, humbly, that it is wounding to watch a public servant reduce those who take him at his word to fools. I mention that not because it “matters” in any sense McConnell would recognize but because it is simply true that this nation’s decline accelerates when the conventional wisdom becomes that believing what the Senate Majority Leader says is self-evidently foolish. The chestnut that politicians always lie is overstated—a society depends on some degree of mutual trust. One party has embraced nihilism, pilloried trust, and turned good faith into a sucker’s failing in a sucker’s game."
