2012 Poverty Guidelines for the
48 Contiguous States and the District of Columbia
family/household Poverty guideline
For families/households with more than 8 persons,
add $3,960 for each additional person.
So a family of four that makes 24,000 a year is not considered to be in poverty and not entitled to assistance.

Conservatives have an "entitlement mentality" too. They take more than they put in and then bitch about the government. It's like they don't have a conscience, it's all just me, me, me, take, take, take, and blame, blame, blame.
