OK I want an EBT card I'm tired of thinking I'm breaking the bank when I spend $50 for food. I've seen people drop $150 on a EBT on junk food and beer

Exactly.

Welfare should always be a temporary leg up. Not a career.

Hey, remember when people were making EBT withdraws from strip clubs?

The billionaires and millionaires were already flooded with cash and now Trump gives them with more loot through the massive tax cuts for them


He and his GOP cohorts are cutting the meager aid to the poor


That’s the legacy of Trump and his GOP fellows.

It’s a disgrace

Is paying 40% in total taxes not enough? I should have to pay more?

Feed government bureaucrats to the poor. Soylent Green is the solution.

The premise is stupid and anti-critical thought.

By taking away certain "safety" nets from abusers, we are helping them to become more self-reliant.

I suppose we could just give them everything they need and watch them die as in true commie nations!

Independence and freedom work!

As I tell my son, you are never actually free until you are 100% responsible for your own needs. That might be unattainable, but it's a number to shoot for in the right direction.

Because no other party or president has wastefully given money to the people who gave them campaign donations?

Try harder.

You keep saying that like the poor doesn't get all their money back if they make an income and even get free money if they don't work and have 15 kids. I agree im skeptical of trickle down economics but the Republicans won and i got a tax cut unlike the democrats who would raise my taxes to help people even more poor then me

Well Bernie, why don't you let the homeless stay in one of your unused homes?

You still haven't addressed my previous point. Less people are on welfare now, so why should the programs get more money than they need?

This is a sad story. The greatest country supposedly ever and the richest won’t take care of their poor.


They need to learn to take responsibility for themselves. No one owes you anything in this life.

Also, “U.N. Expert” is an oxymoron.



This post should have ended the thread.

And how are you helping the poor? Are you giving them your money?

America isn't some place where you can just raise your hand and be taken care of at the expense of government.



I could have sworn the whole point of government is to in fact protect it's citizens, top to bottom.

This isn't an 'America' thing, it's a first world thing.


Look up the definition of 'Protect'. Then opine.

Trump Declares War On The Poor



Republicans Create Budget Deficits and Want People Barely Scraping By to Pay for Them
Of course, the deficits increased because Congress cut taxes for corporations and the wealthy while vastly hiking military spending as well as retaining funds for domestic programs.


www.dcreport.org...


America punishes its poor and rewards the rich out of GREED and selfishness and ignorance.

So unemployment is down and the economy is rising but poverty is increasing? That's very odd.

Taking care of the poor is the responsibility of any human being; particularly if they are uniquely well off.

Particularly in a country of so-called Christians.

Just read their own Bible

Its unseemly, evil, wicked to massively cut taxes for the rich and then go on a crusade to cut the meager scraps they give to the poor


Awe, listen to the bleeding heart.

I wouldn't doubt it that the poor are doing worse under Trump. Like every other decision they make in life, Trump is their excuse to not even try and just blame their life on rich white America that voted for Trump.

Much like the OP's author.

Sad, really.

I have nothing to add besides the incredible amount of envy the author of the thread has for the anyone worth anything is very telling.

If you truly cared, you wouldn't be spewing partisan crap on a website.

You would be volunteering your time helping the poor.

Instead of virtue signaling about it.

aside from the partisan hack retorts

the dollar is losing value everyday and crushing everyone below 50k a year income and anyone who has a family

hence high debt to income ratios

It's funny.

When it comes to socialism, people claim that we need to be a Christian nation and to be more Christian.


But when it comes to abortion?

The same people say to stop being so religious, don't legislate morality, America isn't a Christian nation, keep your bibles at home.


I laugh a lot.
