Poor Get Too Much Money

Ahh, the yearly The Poor Aren't Poor story from the Right:
What does it mean to be “poor” in America? In reality, the average person, as identified as “poor” by the government, has a living standard far higher than the public imagines. According to the government’s own surveys, the typical “poor” American has cable or satellite TV, two color TV’s, a DVD player or VCR. He has air conditioning, a car, a microwave, a refrig¬erator, a stove, and a clothes washer and dryer.
It's always the TVs, huh? And what's this about?
He is able to obtain medical care when needed.
From there the post devolves into complaining about all the free money the govt gives poor people.
