1) "Y'know, California's taxes aren't much higher than here in Washington..." Washington has no income tax. California's is among the highest in the nation at over 12% for the highest earners. The state sales tax rate is the highest in the nation. Obviously you have no idea what you are posting.
2) The Supplemental Poverty Rate is the current way poverty is measured in the United States. Progressives in California have managed over the last 15 years to move the state into first place in that terrible measure.
Since you clearly don't know what your "talking" about, as I have written, I have no interest in running through the merry-go-round with you. It is a complete waste of time and energy.
Have a good one GC. Pick your battles better, this one you lost when you struck the first letter.
