A new study debunks liberal claims about grinding poverty in the U.S. compared to other developed countries. Accounting for how much America's poorest 20 percent consumes — rather than measures like income that can be misleading for reasons explained below — the study finds that the poorest fifth of Americans consume more resources than the average person in 64 percent of other countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

On average, a person among the poorest 20 percent of Americans consumes more goods and services than the average person in Canada, Greece, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Australia, Spain, Portugal, Japan, Denmark, Iceland, New Zealand, Slovenia, Slovakia, Israel, South Korea, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Poland, Chile, Hungary, Turkey, and Mexico.

"Our study shows that because of unreported income, charity, and non-cash government benefits like Medicaid and food stamps, consumption by America’s poorest 20 percent exceeds the national averages even in developed nations like Japan, New Zealand and Denmark," James Agresti, president of Just Facts, said in a statement on the report.

The difference is we working Americans pay for the EBT cards for millions of 'poor', overweight, selfish and lazy Americans! Those other countries don't have social welfare money to spread around like America does.

That would be correct!

The poorest 20% in the US have no income, but they have boat-loads of free-sh*t, including EBT cards, so they can buy more sh*t.
