#1 So they lost the family station wagon, but kept the full-sized luxury car? Hum... actually, I might do that to since, as the Capri got an astounding-for-the-time 21 MPG and could do zero to sixty in 22 seconds. (Dad's got to entertain himself some how while recovering!)

#2 Today, a minimum wage job can’t support a family of three.

I count 4.

#3 Her daddy couldn’t continue to do the job he had before the heart attack, but he found other ways to earn a paycheck. The honourable senator’s mother was not entirely on her own supporting the family of six on a minimum wage job — hers was the supplementary income. From Wikipedia:

Warren was born Elizabeth Ann Herring in Oklahoma City on June 22, 1949,[3][4][5][6] the fourth child of middle-class parents Pauline (née Reed, 1912–1995) and Donald Jones Herring (1911–1997). Warren has described her family as teetering "on the ragged edge of the middle class" and "kind of hanging on at the edges by our fingernails".[7][8] She had three older brothers and was raised Methodist.[9][10]

Warren lived in Norman, Oklahoma, until she was 11 years old, when her family moved back to Oklahoma City.[8] When she was 12, her father, a salesman at Montgomery Ward,[8] had a heart attack, which led to many medical bills as well as a pay cut because he could not do his previous work.[5] After leaving his sales job, he worked as a maintenance man for an apartment building.[11] Eventually, the family's car was repossessed because they failed to make loan payments. To help the family finances, her mother found work in the catalog order department at Sears.[5] When she was 13, Warren started waiting tables at her aunt's restaurant.[12][13]

#4 Minimum wage jobs are not intended to support a family. They are entry level jobs.

#5 The Warren family had three cars when she was growing up (this one, Liz's white MG and some third car). Cry me a river...

#6 Didn't they apply for the tax cut for Native Americans?
