Response to Arcanetrance (Reply #14)

20. do you know any of those people?

because I am pretty sure I don't, although I may see some in passing.

Do you define "rich" as "making more than $600,000 a year" as you just mentioned? I think of those people as "super rich" and such people will always be with us, as they always have.

My point is that, if anybody went without say something that would cost them $30 a month, then they could save $30 a month for their retirement. The fact that they don't then, is not that they CANNOT, but they CHOOSE to spend that $30 a month on something they want instead of saving for their retirement.

I think it is just hyperbolic to say that there are a whole bunch of Americans living on the edge of poverty. Many are living paycheck to paycheck, but that is, I would say, largely because of the spending choices they make.
