    Well if you click on #livethewage everything looked very cheap and filled with chemicals. Eating these constantly inevitably leads to ----> medical expenses in the future, everyone here is kind of right, this whole thing was rather idiotic, I can't even tell the whole point of the thread.

    you are correct. some of them are available (for example), only to those who the minimum wage has made unemployable.

    However, you are creating a strawman, since I did not argue that there were precisely 126 programs designed to help those who were poor, but rather:



    Which agreeably isn't to be taken literally to mean "infinite", but rather "ridiculously many".
    You are still wrong. For many of those people, there are *no* programs to help them pay for all of the things that were mentioned.

    People in the lowest income bracket get it all back, but that doesn't answer my question.

    And that doesn't help any of those people during October, for example. The fallacy of your comments is that waiting for that money in April, doesn't mean anything. It still gets taken out every week.

    Btw... you responded EXACTLY as I thought you would.

    You don't have any idea what Sangha is talking about, so why don't you butt out?
