1 in 7 Americans Now in Poverty per Census

I wrote about this a year ago

U.S. definition of povery for family of 4 is $22K income a year.

Meaning if you make $26K for a family of four you are not in poverty. 

So you can imagine what a hoax 1 in 7 is, when applied to the real world.  I'd consider most singles making $22K in poverty.
