One In Seven American Seniors In Poverty

One In Seven American Seniors In Poverty

(Credit: U.S. News and World Report) Preliminary analyses of the 2010 U.S. Census indicated that less than one in ten American seniors live in poverty. But a new and more nuanced “supplemental” poverty metric finds that number may actually be closer to one in seven seniors when accounting for their out-of-pocket medical bills. The “original” poverty metric has been used since the 1960s. But some argue that it’s an archaic measuring stick, since health […]

Why Apple Hates America

We keep talking about how Apple doesn’t pay any taxes in the United States. Now it doesn’t want to pay taxes on the money it doesn’t even report to the IRS. It wants what is called a “Tax Holiday.” This way it can bring the billions in the Cayman Islands back to America. Looks like […]
