Jeb Bush says Dems lure black voters with 'free stuff' 99>1
While I don't disagree that plenty of black people want stuff handed to them
Everyone got their free phones
But that's beside the point, all governments have social programs, saying that it's just a scam to get votes is stupid.

Not just African-Americans , but everyone. Remember the Obamaphones? Everyone got their free phones. Did you read the numbers of people that got them versus the number of people that got them that really didnt qualify ?

Typical GOP "Blacks only want free stuff" rhetoric. Very condescending.
Republicans should be the last ones to be calling out Democrats. Republicans also buy votes, but they do it with tax breaks for billionaires and less regulation for Corporations. They have to keep fooling their base into believing that the only way they can get to the top is if they can just give billionaires a few more tax breaks.
Seeing how Republican states have the highest percentage of poverty it doesn't seem to be working out too well for them.
