Gomer just said that "ONE out of every TWO children in Cleveland is living in POVERTY". That is QUITE revealing about HOW these Marxists define POVERTY. Amazing.

Yo, <sarcasm> genius </sarcasm>, it would appear he defines "poverty" the way it is defined by The US Census Bureau:

To wit:
Cleveland experienced the highest poverty rate among America's big cities last year, with nearly a third of its people in poverty, according to new figures released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

And nearly one-half of Cleveland's children were among the poor, again the highest rate among American cities with populations of 250,000 or more
[emphasis added]

So, I guess the US Census Bureau is a giant enclave of "Marxists", eh?

Sorry to let some facts get in the way of whatever opinions it is you're trying to hold.
