ROFL not a Tea Bagger Blog this time there are a lot of sited sources for this one. Do you really think anyone is stupid enough to believe welfare people are republicans ROFL
They are. Look at the data, not the online surveys. Of course tea baggers don't admit to being on welfare. They won't even admit to being tea baggers.

Also, it is a blog, and it is by a tea bagger. The word "blog" goves it away.

Why do the blue states have to pay for the red ones? Why are 16 of the 20 poorest states republican?

The sheeple on here want us to believe in their sites they post for it is evidence. But to be fair the people against Obama has done the samething. So when I talk about things Obama has done, I use the major networks including the liberal sites. When they also report Obama's lies and breaking the law it is shrugged off and they love to use past preidents. Two wrongs do not make a right. Then they cry rasism when they can not come up with anything like cowards. Obstruction is a battle cry. But Obama admired Reagan and he was able to reach across the isle because no matter his faults, Reagan was seen as a leader. Hell, even Bush was able to do it and he was a walking moron. Bill Clinton did it to and he did it with flare. Obama has shown no leadership ability. Obama's first act when he became preident was to jump on a plane and travel the world on a apology tour to show weakness right off the bat. How can you apologize for things before your time and those were the times back then on how you did things. Obama does not man up on what he does and that is a fact.

As it turns out, it is red states that are overwhelmingly the Welfare Queen States. Yes, that's right. Red States — the ones governed by folks who think government is too big and spending needs to be cut — are a net drain on the economy, taking in more federal spending than they pay out in federal taxes. They talk a good game, but stick Blue States with the bill.

As far as I can tell, Bush was able to stimulate the economy for a while using Republican approaches, but at the end of his time in office it entirely imploded. Reagan, same thing. I think the economy had another collapse right after he left office. So, what about the food stamp issue? Why are Republicans so concerned about it?

Charts of food stamp usage show that while a few Democrat led states have high food stamp usage; food stamp usage is highest consistently across Republican states. What does that say about the Republican approach?

To me, it says that the top down, trickle down theory of economics fails the poor. Under conditions where the poor were helped, one would expect that there would be less reliance on food stamps. People would receive short-term support, a little assistance getting on their feet, maybe some job training, or some assistance paying for community college and would be on their way.

If the poor are uplifted even just slightly then they become tax payers rather than living off food stamps. Republicans are angry about food stamp usage because they have failed to uplift the poor in their states. The top down, trickle down, economic approach has broken social mobility in Republican led states. Republicans are angry because their failed economic approach leaves them with fewer tax payers and more people on welfare.

You would be wrong.

Hardly surprising, we see that in a two-party split, 60-80% of welfare recipients are Democrats, while full time Workers are evenly divided between parties.

You have similar results in this recent NPR-Poll. Among the Long Term Unemployed, 72% of the two-party support goes to Democrats.

It appears that once more common sense is right and the impression left by the New York Times wrong. Indeed, people who live off the government disproportionally support Democrats.

Nearly 72 percent of SNAP participants are in families with children; more than one-quarter of participants are in households with seniors or people with disabilities.
Who knows if these kids, elderly or disabled vote democrat or republican. Do we, as human beings want them to starve. Throw out the politics, just think about the ones who need it.
What do you want to do? NO politics, just answer the question.

No but get the facts straight. We have not helped the situation in this country one bit. Full time jobs have went down to part time jobs. We have good seasonal hires but most are layed off and back to square one.

All hail our dictator in chief, the mighty King Obama. With a swoosh of his pen he decrees how it will be.
==========
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he would not wait for Congress to pass legislation to advance his policy priorities this year and said he was "getting close" to finishing a review of U.S. surveillance practices - to be unveiled on Friday.
Obama, speaking to reporters during a cabinet meeting at the White House, foreshadowed his upcoming State of the Union address and what appeared to be a new messaging strategy by emphasizing his ability to take executive actions without approval from lawmakers.
"We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help that they need," he said.
"I've got a pen, and I've got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions ... and I've got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life," he said.

Leighla, I am getting the facts right and that wasn't the question. What do we do with the children, elderly, and disabled? They can't work. Do we let them starve?

Top secret Benghazi documents prove Obama administration 'knew about terrorist attack within minutes'

•Newly declassified testimonies about what happened among Pentagon officials the night of the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012 have been obtained by Fox News
•The documents show the U.S. military found out about 15 minutes after the attack - which killed four Americans - that it was an act of terror and communicated that to the Obama administration
•However the government - including Obama and then-U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, who were in the throes of the 2012 US Presidential election - maintained for two weeks afterward the attack started as a protest against an anti-Islamic film and turned violent

You haven't answered Melissa's question yet, Leighla. Benghazi is not the answer to everything You don't know the answer for.
