Liberal California's poverty rate is still the highest in the nation,
despite state efforts

Newly released federal estimates show California's poverty rate remained the
highest in the nation, despite a modest fall, and the state's falling
uninsured rate slowed for the first time since before Medicaid expansion.

According to the Census Bureau, the share of Californians in poverty fell to
19 percent - a 1.4 percent decrease from last year. However, policy experts
warned that in spite of the good news more than 7 million people still
struggle to get by in the state.

The poverty figures released Wednesday are said to paint the best picture of
life for California's working poor since it encompasses income from
government programs and factors in the high cost of living in some corners
of the state.

Although California has a vigorous economy and a number of safety net
programs to aid needy residents, it's often not enough to forestall economic
hardship for one out of every five residents, the data show.

I mention again the analogy I made with Puerto Rico where my former
Puerto Rican neighbor told me the rich did not need to leave Puerto Rico
because they could afford to stay and the poor could not afford to leave
but it was the middle class that was leaving. The same thing is
happening in the continental US.

And very high home prices, which is THE reason California can be
considered to be at the top. Otherwise, it is nowhere near the top.

home prices don't factor into the economy, but in any event, high home
prices attract developers

But home prices are the reason that some recent lists of poverty have
California anywhere near the top of the list. Otherwise, it is more like 15.

They are just recognizing that the cost of living makes it a lot
harder to live on a low income in California.
You also see similar lists that make those dark blue states the worst
to retire in.
I did see an interesting comparison between Puerto Rico and
California. There are really rich people who never see the problems
and really poor people who have no way to get out but the middle class
is fleeing.
