Really Carol, blaming Obama for the rise in poverty caused by the recession that happened before he took office,.<quoted text>
The poor are not only getting poorer but the poverty rate has risen under Obama and more are becoming poor. How will more government spending and taking more from the successful going to change that?
How will a $16 trillion deficit that is climbing to $20 trillion help anyone? How can maintaining the status quo without major reforms or major cuts make a difference to the growing poverty level?
Government can't make people do what they don't want to do - get an education, stay off drugs and addiction and try and become self-reliant.
We've spent millions on the War on Poverty for four or five decades. Nothing has changed - except it's gotten worse.
Dragging the entire country down isn't the solution. When Obamacare kicks in, no one will be exempt from the rising costs. If Obama's plan isn't the right one, it will happen even sooner.
Why do you think Obama's plan - more spending, minimal cuts and giving himself carte blanche on raising the debt ceiling without Congress' approval - the right one? Do you think the rising costs of Obamacare is going to help the middle class and the poor?
You have absolutely no shame in posting your garbage.
Your problem is that you think people want to be poor. You think they live quite the lifestyle.
The additional spending under the Obama plan to to build infrastructure that we need while helping the construction industry & create jobs.
Those debt ceiling arguments that we have had. Wow, they certainly did a lot of good. Congress passes spending bills but then tells the Executive branch they can't spend it. The debt ceiling is a joke meant to push buttons on the uninformed massses like you.
Here you go again, Obamacare. Obamacare will help the middle class. It insures 30 million people. It saves money for small businesses & individuals who buy insurance as individuals. It slows the rise of costs.
But you avoided the main issue. Why do you insist on looking at the statistics on how much the top 2% pay in taxes as being unfair.
You should look at it as an indication of how much wealth these top 2% of accumulated & how this redistribution of wealth towards the wealthy is widening the gap in this country from the have & have nots.
Marc Rubio said a day or two ago that what makes America so strong & exceptional is not the wealthy. Every country has wealthy people. What makes us great is a strong middle class. And that is is trouble & needs our help.
The Republicans need to quit handing money to rich people at the expense of the poor & middle class.
