Poverty Theater is never a good look on politicians. It never ends well.

Laughably out-of-touch Rep. Barbara Lee joined fellow Democrats in taking the Minimum Wage Challenge this week. The poor dear tweeted her #LiveTheWage hardships as she struggled to get through the week on $77 (a $290 a week wage minus housing costs and taxes).

Before you read this next one, let it sink in that Lee is a member of the House Budget Committee.

Toothpaste: $5. Ridicule: Priceless.
