    Not presuming to speak for him; but I think what he is trying to say is that those defined as poor in this country would be considered well off by the poor in other countries. And there is some truth to that.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    And in most nations the gap between the poor and the rich is much smaller.

    No, they're not. People considered poor in this country are considered seriously destitute in other first world countries.

    Yeah, I guess they're better off than people in third world countries, but I wasn't aware that we were competing with them. Good God man.
