While appreciate your effort at playing poor and the hilarity that proves just how out of touch you are via the middle class and poor folks . I would like to take a shot and try to enlighten you about how we live.
- The poor and middle class are living paycheck to paycheck. They can’t sit back and say I can’t live on …$ per hour as they have no choice about the income they bring in or living on less. You want a challenge, live on my income not for a week but for 3-6 months and I will live on your income. There is a hell of a difference between a congress critter’s paycheck of $15,000,00 a month and a person living on 15 grand a year.
- You might want talk to a few real poor folk before you decide what we go shopping for each week. I don’t buy canned sardines nor crackers as a cheap meal. I make my own bread and grow a garden and buy only those loss leaders and what is on sale. I buy in bulk and while I have no problem with ramen noodles they are not my first choice for shopping nor making cheap but healthy meals.
- You Congress critters have worked about 100 days so far this year and you are off for3 + weeks and your reelections campaigns and I ‘m sure you forgot all about your little stunt of living on $7.25 per hour just the same as you did for your little stunt living on EBT after you cranked in the lowest possible numbers and wanted to be something that was a victim to be pitied. I ain’t impressed!
- We don’t have the option of giving up paying our bills simply because we tried really really hard and had a government job that pays over $150,000 per year and perks that we could fall back on.
You Congress critter want to impress me pick a middle class or poor person in your district and give them your paycheck for 3-6 months and you live on what they make in the same time. You might learn something at best and you will help a poor person or family at worst. I know you will not do it as power and money is all that gives you meaning in your sad life. I maybe poor but I’m so glad that I am not like you congress critters. I pity you!
