Fox News is reporting, according to IRS numbers,
that 1.3 million Americans earn $200k+ per year in
1995, a 14% increase from 1994. Add to that
the 97% of the poor that own color televisions [2],
we have a pretty high standard of poverty. The one problem about
government poverty statistics is that they
only include income, and in fact shows that
41% of the poor actually own their own households.
