Boston: We’re Number 20! (Poverty Index Edition)

In the wake of the remarkable statement by GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum (R-I Got Mine) that “There is income inequality in America. There always has been and, hopefully, and I do say that, there always will be,” New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow published this Poverty Top 40 chart in his latest piece:

And notice New York’s ranking: #41 with a 20.1% poverty rating.

Who woulda thunk?
