Your statement was that the US poverty line is higher than any developed country in the west.
Whom are you quoting and how was it determined?
On the surface it seems like a cheap shot using "facts" that you really don't believe and don't know to be correct but don't mind repeating for the sake of making your own country "look" bad.
Evidently you are not too busy to blurt out some facts without the personal integrity to substantiate them while denying the validity of other's facts with a non fact like "cars and TVs are a dime a dozen". I haven't seen any of those lately.
And I am a literal person. To me, words do mean something. Slogans, jokes, metaphors, rhetoric, exaggerations and fantasy do not impress me.
