Okay, this is the title of this article which explains that former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland (now president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund) is trying to live off $77 a week budget which is essentially "full-time minimum wage minus average taxes and housing expenses for a week." This should cover "all of our food, transportation, personal care products and whatever entertainment"
Here is how it breaks down I guess...
1 full-time job
40 hours a week
$7.25 an hour minimum wage
~30% tax rate
~$500/month housing expenses
If my calculation is correct, this would get you to $77/week he is referring too.
