said by pnh102:Well I'm poor but after I pay all my bills I only have like $120 for the whole month. Now being poor is managed as long as as you have a budget and. Stick to it! Yes I have unlimited broadband on my smartphone. But I think the government is just saying that in this day and age broadband internet access has become almost a necessity and that everyone rich poor or " middle. Class " needs access. To it. Thats all. said by 25139889:
And you get to deem that why?
Being poor implies that you're having a hard time paying for things you need in order to survive. If you can pay for things like food, clothing, rent, health care and what not, and still have money left over for $10 a month for broadband, as well as what it costs to own a computer or other device that uses it then you are not poor.
When did being able to afford a marginal amount of money for luxuries become part of the definition of "poor?" If that's what the government is defining "poor" as then, once again, it gets it wrong.
