Why do 'red states' have more poverty?

Americans do not have to guess what the country would be like if the small-government, conservative economic agenda were implemented on a national scale.
Many Republican-controlled, predominantly Southern “red states” already have. The result is not an abundance of prosperity from under taxed “job creators,” as often touted in sound bites and on the conservative candidate campaign trail. Instead, according to the numbers, it’s quite the opposite.
Smaller government austerity policies in red states have created macroeconomic societies with high poverty and low education rates. Low-paying jobs and lack of health care also dominate states that have implemented the smaller government theories of conservative ideology.
In Texas, for example, decades of Republican control, from the governor’s office down to state and local legislatures, has kept the Tea Party ideological model in place. And it has the highest poverty rate of “any large industrial state,” according to Texas Politics data.
The data showed similar high poverty rate numbers for other red states, including Mississippi, Louisiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Lack of health care is also a bigger problem in states following the conservative Republican ideological view of less funding for government assistance programs.

Hunger is also a bigger problem among states where Republicans have had their way with local budgets. And while southern red states do not have a lock on growing US poverty rates, they still lead with the worse numbers. More than 24 percent of the people in Mississippi suffer from food deficiencies, with Alabama coming in second at nearly 23 percent.
Red States also top the charts for populations with lower education levels. The top 10 include Oklahoma, Tennessee, Indiana, Nevada, Alabama, Louisiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi and West Virginia, according to Fox Business.

Gates memoir reveals Obama’s incompetence on foreign policy

With media attention focused on Chris Christie and Bridgegate, it was easy to miss a more important Washington story last week. The other shoe dropped on the Obama presidency.

Still battered at home by the ObamaCare debacle and the permanently sluggish economy, the last thing the White House wanted was bad news on foreign policy. But that’s exactly what it got, and then some, thanks to the shockingly scathing book by Robert Gates.

The former defense secretary offers the most devastating critique to come from an Obama insider. He paints the president as estranged from the very Afghan military surge he ordered and suspicious of and hostile toward top leaders of the armed forces.

Gates is especially critical of Vice President Joe Biden, writing that he has been “wrong on nearly every major foreign-policy and national-security issue over the past four decades.”

Second wave of health-insurance disruption affects small businesses

When millions of health-insurance plans were canceled last fall, the Obama administration tried to be reassuring, saying the terminations affected only the small minority of Americans who bought individual policies.

But according to industry analysts, insurers and state regulators, the disruption will be far greater, potentially affecting millions of people who receive insurance through small employers by the end of 2014.

While some cancellation notices already have gone out, insurers say the bulk of the letters will be sent in October, shortly before the next open-enrollment period begins. The timing — right before the midterm elections — could be difficult for Democrats who are already fending off Republican attacks about the Affordable Care Act and its troubled rollout.

Chris Christie's career will be OVER if he's lying about Bridgegate involvement: Ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani
A handful of GOP officials offered their support for the New Jersey chief Sunday, but Giuliani said the scandal-stricken governor is putting his entire legacy on the line by saying he wasn't personally involved in the crippling lane closures on the George Washington Bridge.

“I think this is a story that's still developing and we should reserve judgment,” Rubio said on CBS’“Face the Nation.” And beyond that, I'm just not, don't know that much about it, other than what I've seen reported in the press.”

As questions continued to arise throughout the weekend over who in Christie’s office knew about the sinister traffic plot, the man leading the New Jersey state investigation into the offense, which is also being reviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI, suggested the probe could result in disastrous consequences for the governor.

“We’re no longer looking at just lane closures,” New Jersey State Assemblyman John Wisniewski said.“We’re looking at an abuse of power and an attempt to cover up that abuse of power.”

Obamacare's Poorly Translated Spanish Website Frustrates Users

Mirroring problems with the federal health care website, people around the nation attempting to navigate the Spanish version have discovered their own set of difficulties.

The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov , launched more than two months late.

A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form.

And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics say they must have been computer-generated — the name of the site itself can literally be read "for the caution of health."

Illegal Immigration a $113 Billion a Year Drain on U.S. Taxpayers

FAIR Releases First-of-its-Kind Comprehensive Study of Federal,

State and Local Costs of Illegal Immigration

The report also accounts for taxes paid by illegal aliens about $13 billion a year, resulting in a net cost to taxpayers of about $100 billion. However, the study notes that government at all levels would likely have realized significantly greater revenues if jobs held by illegal aliens had been filled by legal U.S. residents instead.

Apparently you can't acknowledge the embarrassing, avoidable problems Obama's incompetence created for the Spanish speaking community.

Obama learned nothing from his epic failure of the Obamacare English website roll out.

The problems with the Obamacare Spanish site would have been obvious had it been vetted properly via beta testing with both a technical and Spanish speaking community. Someone Obama put in charge allowed this embarrassment to go live.

But that's what happens when a silver tongued community organizer with zero executive experience tries to run a country.

"War on Poverty" and healthcare reform

In 1964, upon Johnson's request, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1964 and the Economic Opportunity Act, which was in association with the war on poverty.

Johnson set in motion bills and acts,[64]

creating programs such as

Head Start,

food stamps,

Work Study,

Medicare

and Medicaid, which still exist today.

“I’ll have those n**-gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.

Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”

This is what happens when blacks are raised in the slums (inner cities) without a father and the siblings have 5 or 6 different fathers. Raised on welfare, taught that the white man put them where they are, mothers are on crack sleeping with any man who has money or drugs, being taught that all white men are racist, white man owes them a living because their great great great great grandfather was a slave, being told because they are black so they cannot be racist (Dan the Man's belief). The blacks keep racism alive with leaders like Sharpton and Jackson..they claim to be ministers of God, yet lack the proper credentials and twist the word of God to their benefit. It's no wonder.....
Half of black males in U.S. arrested by age 23, study finds
(Reuters)- Almost half of black males and almost 40 percent of white males are arrested in the United States by the time they are 23 years old, according to a study released this week.
In findings published in the journal Crime & Delinquency, researchers at several universities studied a representative sample of 7,335 people who reported that they'd been arrested at a young age, said Robert Brame, criminology professor at the University of South Carolina and lead author of the study.
Researchers found that more black and Hispanic men had been arrested as youths than white men for something other than a minor traffic violation. More men than women had been arrested by the time they are 23 years old.
By the time they reached 18 years old, 30 percent of black and 26 percent of Hispanic males compared to 22 percent of white males had been arrested.
By the time they reached 23 years old, 49 percent of black males, 44 percent of Hispanic males, and 38 percent of white males had been arrested for something other than a minor traffic violation.

Obama donor leading Justice Department’s IRS investigation

Two Republican lawmakers and a conservative legal group are questioning the Justice Department’s selection of a Democratic donor to lead the agency’s probe into the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of certain advocacy groups during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) issued a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Wednesday demanding the department remove DOJ trial attorney Barbara Bosserman from the case, saying her involvement is “highly inappropriate and has compromised the administration’s investigation of the IRS.”
