Half of Americans Are Poor

This article says that 49% of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck and 53% do not have savings to cover emergencies.  That is POOR, regardless of dollar values involved.  Poor means you constantly worry about survival and making ends meet and what on Earth you will do when something else goes wrong.  That is the norm today.  Only a small fraction of Americans are actually living well -- and even they are aware that if anything knocks them down, there's no safety net to help them back up.  This is not a healthy situation for anyone.  >_<
