Why yes, it's been so until FDR was elected and then about the time of Reagan. See: Leadville, CO; or Blair Mountain in Appalachia, etc. etc.

But the right/reactionary/and worse are always adept at deflecting, redirecting terms like 'class warfare' and such. See: Newt Gringrich

No the Rep. are giving to the 1% like they always do. Thats why they took the food stamp program out of the Farm Bill to help the 1%.. To hell with the 47% who need them..

LOSERS!!!

A lot of the problem with welfare is the amount of people who just abuse it. For honest tax payers like ME, it's a raw nerve.
I would not like to see them cut all aid, but drug testing would be a good step in weeding out the bums who just sit around living off the government and getting high.

I pay taxes also. They have estimated that only 1% of people actually abuse it. Drug testing is a good thing. I'm all for it. Does welfare and other programs need revamped ? Of course they do.

The problem here being. There is 1 job for every 3 Americans who need work. What the hell are these people going to do? Rob and kill to put food on the table? What would you do if you or your children were starving and there was no work.

Instead of cutting this program so deep they need to get their head out of their ass and get people back to work.

Do you know that people on welfare have 4.50 a day to eat if you average out what welfare pays them?

Just think about that. Could you eat on 4.50 a day?? It breaks down to like 1.40 per meal. Breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Drug testing, AND some type of community service as well.

Well, to be ferrer- I mean FAIR- Lyndon Johnson did start the War On Poverty back in the 60's. The rethuglicans are just taking it nuclear. A surge of sorts...

The *thinking* is that those veterans/children/seniors vote for democrats to keep receiving those lucrative payouts. The rethuglican plan is to eliminate those lucrative freebies so that those lesser Americans won't have a reason to vote for democrats. They'll vote for the Rethuglicans who TOOK AWAY THEIR lifelines instead!

Rethuglicans are stoopit!

I have one simple request.
Visit a welfare office, set there, watch & listen,
even converse with some of the recipients of child support, food stamps, and other welfare benefits. After a couple hours or so follow one out the door, check out their vehicle and continue to follow them to see where they go and what they do before going home. Then examine their residence from your car.
Now tell me if they deserve your money.

YES I HAVE!
I've also served many mothers at a bar I worked at part time. "Parents without Partners" was the name of their club. They looked, dressed and acted much different
than while at the welfare office.
Would you believe...?

I agree with that. That's a policy that would put an end to welfare-for-life recipients. Of course, you do know that none of your fellow Democrats would never go for that.
