Forcing the family to sell its car will make food stamps available but may make it more difficult for the family's breadwinner to search for and find a job.

32. lappuse - ... nearly six million more Americans were poor. Moreover, as Census data show, those who are poor have grown poorer in recent years.

The proportion of the poor who fall into the group that might be / termed the "poorest of the poor...
