Think You've Got It Bad? Martha's Vineyard Is Now a Low-Income Area

Pity the poor residents of Martha's Vineyard, that stony island off the coast of mainland Massachusetts where some of America's most wretched refuse are forced to make their home. Or at least to summer.

 

Times are so bad there that former President Barack Obama, with nothing but a small government pension, a $65 million book deal, and tens of millions in Netflix dollars to his name, was forced to settle for a $12 million mansion there, right on the coast where rising seawaters will soon return the island to the ocean depths from whence it came. 

Now comes the most devastating news of all, as the mostly part-time residents of Martha's must deal with fresh humiliation in addition to the economic hardships they already face. The island has been officially designated as a "low-income area" by the Biden administration.

Seriously. I'm not making this up, and when it comes to relentlessly stupid economic incentives under the Biden administration, I don't have to. 

It isn't just Martha's Vineyard that is some kind of officially recognized poverty-stricken area, either.

If you've been reading VodkaPundit in recent months — and if you haven't, shame on you — you're already aware of the hazards and pratfalls (not a typo) of Presidentish Joe Biden's promise to mandate and incentivize the ever-lovin' bejeebus out of electric vehicles until everyone wears spandex jackets in his streamlined world. Or until the power grid fizzles, whichever comes first.:snip:
