This entire paragraph doesn’t jive. First it factually states that “you can’t run endless deficits…” which transitions directly into finger pointing on policy that reduces spending for what appears to hold a singular purpose, which is of course to blame the Republicans.

More importantly the entire article is only supported by one thing. Those ephemeral goal posts that exist around what how poverty if defined. The boogey man of poverty. The unsolvable specter of “those with less”.
