    @fx, <the specific link to that Heritage Article which states that living in poverty in the US equates to living in the lap of luxury.>
    The article didn't say that at all, just pointing out that those which you stated live "in abject poverty" in actuality, don't, when compared to the middle class of Europe.

    from Wikipedia:
    According to a 2011 paper by poverty expert Robert Rector, of the 43.6 million Americans deemed to be below the poverty level by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2009, the majority had adequate shelter, food, clothing and medical care. In addition, the paper stated that those assessed to be below the poverty line in 2011 have a much higher quality of living than those who were identified by the census 40 years ago as being in poverty.[87] Moreover, Swedish libertarian think tank Timbro points out that lower-income households in the U.S. tend to own more appliances and larger houses than many middle-income Western Europeans.[88]
