Brilliant. Now let’s look around for some more goalposts to move. The poverty line is obviously set way too high, so if we take that down to, I dunno, an income of $50/year for individuals, we can pretty much wipe out poverty in the US. Thanks, President Trump.
For our next trick, we’ll address the “Americans without health insurance” metric by saying that anyone who doesn’t have health insurance isn’t American. And there’s an end to the ‘horrifying nightmare’ of Obamacare, with its millions of uninsured.
