Linda Tirado

  • Being poor isn't a crime — it just feels like it.

  • I have trouble understanding why taking a few grand a year in food stamps is somehow magically different than taking trillions as a bailout.

  • Poor people are poor because they lack money. They aren't poor because the're stupid or lazy or malevolent or immoral. They just don't have a great job.
