    Most of America’s rich think the poor have it easy

    Most of America’s rich think the poor have it easy - The Washington Post
    Most of America's richest think poor people have it easy in this country, according to a new report released by the Pew Research Center. The center surveyed a nationally representative group of people this past fall, and found that the majority of the country's most financially secure citizens (54 percent at the very top, and 57 percent just below) believe the "poor have it easy because they can get government benefits without doing anything in return." America's least financially secure, meanwhile, vehemently disagree — nearly 70 percent say the poor have hard lives because the benefits "don't go far enough." Nationally, the population is almost evenly split.

    I suspect, there are those among the poor that think that the rich in this country have it easy. I wonder, could they both be right?

    Geeezz.. more of this nonsense

    Us vs them, rich vs poor, 1 percent vs the 99 percent.

    Its all bull ****.

    Purposely divisive leftist perpetuatjions to push an agenda built on envy, and the false narrative of " disparity ".

    All because they have absolutely nothing substantial to run on. Their policies can't stand on their own merits so they invent these class struggles.

    Trying to rope in the useful idiots who actually think Government should be the final arbiter of whats " fair " and " equitable ".

    Another thing they tell each other is that the poor have 'an inability to defer gratification'.

    Yeah I guess being poor is living the dream. Clearly more people should aim for that dream of being poor.

    Re: Most of America’s rich think the poor have it easy

    I wonder how many of them know that most poor households include at least one person who works full time, or is trying to work full time whenever he/she can find full time work. I wonder if they know how very hard many of the "poor" work in return for so little pay, and for benefits they can scarcely afford but can scarcely afford to risk going without (ie health insurance).



    I wonder how many of them have ever lived under conditions where a single missed paycheck can spell disaster, or where SNAP or other programs can make the difference between whether your children go hungry or not.

    You don't think that some of the poor are because of their own choosing. You don't think that some poor are living off the tax payer and loving it. Have you ever thought that some will not work no matter what. Did you ever think that some would rather steel than work? Yes living on the tax payer for some is living the dream.

    Some- can you clarify some? Some sort of a number, take a reasonably informed guess?

    I said for some living off the tax payer is living the dream. That would be more than one.

    I guess I could ask you how many are living on food stamps, living in section 8 housing, living on welfare, living on state subsidies, state aid like housing etc etc. And then ask how many have been doing it for years.
