I wish we got that!!!!!! Not poverty AT ALL!
Are you sure it wasn't a joking/sarcastic comment referring to the fact that they are asset rich but cash-flow poor, hence their disposable income may be similar to that of someone truly living below the poverty line? In any event it's still an inappropriate thing to say.
Huge load of .....
It's called living beyond their means. I see it all the time - people on good incomes who buy too many properties because they think they should or spend far too much on stuff they don't need because they think they should, then become cash poor and extremely stretched.
It's of their own making. It's not poverty.

I wish I was that poor too! Not poor at all.
Hardly poverty!! We don't earn that combined, nowhere near it and we aren't living below the poverty line!
Reminds me of a friend, her and her bf earn well over $200 000 combined (well over!!!) and they both live with their own parents and still complain about being poor!

???? .... No.
Some people have no idea how others live. Surviving on a low income is an art, one I've learnt the hard way. I'd like to see those people try it for 6 months. It might open their eyes to the real world.
