"Fully one in three households is classified as “financially fragile.”

2/3 MAGA!

"Viewing the economy through a cost-of-living paradigm helps explain why roughly two in five American adults would struggle to come up with $400 in an emergency so many years after the Great Recession ended. It helps explain why one in five adults is unable to pay the current month’s bills in full. It demonstrates why a surprise furnace-repair bill, parking ticket, court fee, or medical expense remains ruinous for so many American families, despite all the wealth this country has generated. Fully one in three households is classified as “financially fragile.

Along with the rise of inequality, the slowdown in productivity growth, and the shrinking of the middle class, the spiraling cost of living has become a central facet of American economic life and putting families’ dreams of security out of reach."

"The price of housing represents the most acute part of this crisis. In metro areas such as the Bay Area, Seattle, and Boston, severe supply shortages have led to soaring prices—millions of low- and middle-income families are no longer able to purchase centrally located homes. The median asking price for a single-family home in San Francisco has reached $1.6 million; even with today’s low interest rates, that would require a monthly mortgage payment of roughly $6,000, assuming that a family puts down the standard 20 percent. In Manhattan, listings for sale now ask an average of nearly $1,800 per square foot."

I bet 1 in 5 households is 1. Welfare queen 2. Illegal alien family.

Our government created both problems.

I know a lot of people who should be rich and are not; having money is first a decision, then an action to get it.

Most people don’t make the decision and like spending more than saving.

Let em eat cake.

Increase taxes
Bring illegals
Kill your children
Accept gays

That should fix all your problems. Your problem isn’t poverty, your problem is not being tolerant enough of shit that kills you. Accept your liberal masters, and all will be well.

You forgot about pouring pork gravy on your wife's genitals to make sure the Mexicans can find her when they are looking to rape white women so that they can breed more jihadi to kill the remaining white people and make America gay.
