Sure thing, Liz.
One little problem -- a NY Times blog. Now there's an indisputable source if I ever saw one.
Conservatives don't ignore the poor. Unlike the left, they don't exploit them. Secondly, they can tell the difference between the truly poor and lazy slackers, regardless of color.
There's a huge difference between needy and dependent.
unlike FOX, here's the cited source.

Do you remember when he debated Katherine Harris? Hah__LMAO.
I'm not so sure Nelson is the one. I think Charlie is our best bet. If Scott would accept the Medicaid expansion, he might get re elected. Nelson is doing some work on that plan

African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share.
White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits – again, much closer to their 64 percent population share.

one of these days i might come to an understanding as to why you nutjobs ignore poor white people who are on welfare. but i'm sure you'll assure me that it has nothing to do with racism.

Maybe__but Crist is damned near as smarmy as Scott.

Perhaps Nelson is just trying to shake things up. The (R's) have a back up in Putnam__not sure who the (D's) have. Buddy Dyer (Orlando Mayor) who could win__is not interested__at all.

Maybe a newcomer will pop up.

Blacks make up 13.6% of the population and represent 39.8% of all welfare recipients. You do the math.

As an American, I'm not proud of these numbers. But you, as Democrats, should be high-fiving each other. Your programs and their intended results are unequivocally successful.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) reveals his change of heart in an interview with MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes airing Sunday on the Showtime documentary series "Years Of Living Dangerously," the transcript of which was provided in advance to TPM.
"[T]he mass majority of respected scientists say that it’s conclusive, the evidence is clear. So I don't think the jury is out," Grimm says.

It also says you have extensive training in "Horticulture and Botany". Did you ever find out what tree roots those were clogging up your sewer? I would think a trained "Horticulturist" would know something like that.

our programs?

Reagan is the guy who gave us the 47%. Clinton gave us this.

Ten years ago today I signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act. By then I had long been committed to welfare reform. As a governor, I oversaw a workfare experiment in Arkansas in 1980 and represented the National Governors Association in working with Congress and the Reagan administration to draft the welfare reform bill enacted in 1988.
