US poverty Levels: 49.7 million are poor, and 80% of the total population is near poverty

If you live in the United States, there is a good chance that you are now living in poverty or near poverty. Nearly 50 million Americans, (49.7 Million), are living below the poverty line, with 80% of the entire U.S. population living near poverty or below it.

That near poverty statistic is perhaps more startling than the 50 million Americans below the poverty line, because it translates to a full 80% of the population struggling with joblessness, near-poverty or reliance on government assistance to help make ends meet.

Just like Rome: a massive slave population, and a small oligarchy that Cicero the slime-ball called a “Republic”. What a sham it was then and since.
