« The Invisible Hand Influencing Destructive Policies | Main | Moises and Medicaid Part 2 »


Thank you for sharing this story. Everytime I hear someone flippantly state that "if you are truly poor, there are programs to help" I just want to slap them. Moises' family of 4 income at $22,000 is only 106.5% of the federal poverty level. An income of $9600 (800/month) represents only 46.5% of the federal poverty level for a famly of four.

While politicians argue over who deserves help and who doesn't, those that need the help simply have no choice but to move on with their lives and hope for the best.
