AOC Has Lost Her Mind Over Poverty

I’m assuming that she’s been accurately quoted here and if she has been then she’s lost her mind:

Elsewhere we’re told that this is her evaluation of what the individual poverty line should be, that $38,000 a year.

Which is interesting really. The median income for the country appears to be $31,000 or so. So poverty is now to be a higher sum than the average income level for the country?

This nation of “destitution” (with the median citizen needing federal help) is not the one I live in (nor she, I imagine). But it is a compelling narrative. And, dittoes to Esteban, compelling narratives win elections, not correct facts.
