Consider This –

– A majority of us think that only somewhere between 1 and 5 million Americans live in poverty in the US.

– The actual number of Americans living at or below the poverty level is 33 million.

– 47% of us think the poverty level is $35,000 a year for a family of four.

– The actual poverty level for a family of four is $18,104 a year.
