Saheli breaks it down in a post titled, aptly, “WTF”:
And even if it isn’t about race, why the hell is it about poverty? What the bloody hell is up with this? What is up with our system wherein if you are poor you get left behind? The message we’re sending the world is that in America, if you are poor, if you don’t have a car, if you can’t all fit into your car, you will get left behind to die in sewage. As I wrote Tauscher and Boxer and Feinstein–I’ve never been so ashamed and so dissapointed with my government.
