I think it’s more that the word ‘poor’ has become oddly unusable in modern politics. You’re supposed to worry about the middle class, who can be defined as just about anyone. The poor are a hot potato.

Poor are the new untouchables. If you’re poor you’re supposed to be ashamed that you haven’t Horatio Algered your way to a better position in life. To have empathy for them is to demean the value of one’s own “hard work.”
