Why Poor People Can't Get Out of The Hammock the GOP Claim They've Been In Too Long
Huge welfare subsidies continue to fill the corporate coffers for this drug and many others and that's OK according to Republicans.
But God help Democrats if they want to fund food stamps or offer subsidies to people who are still feeling the misery and fallout of the greatest Depression and job loss since the Great Depression.
Republicans advocate for welfare subsidies for the 'job creators'. They believe (so they spin) that without these loopholes, there would be less incentive to create American jobs.
Do these geniuses understand how much of a disincentive it is for workers to go to work at a job that barely pays enough to put food on the table for their kids?
The hypocrisy of the Republican Party has become more transparent.
People are asking why the GOP are in favor of corporate welfare while cutting food stamps and refusing to extend unemployment benefits to those still unable to find good paying work.
Their argument is no longer credible.
Cutting food stamps and UI benefits to 'get people out of their hammock' isn't resonating with most thinking Americans.
Privatizing sectors that should remain in the public arena isn't flying either because of the lame excuses the GOP uses to justify giving more to their friends in corporate America while they cut social programs.
If the GOP want 'people to get out of their hammock', then the GOP need to get off their backs. Where are the jobs, jobs, jobs, that the GOP said they would focus on if they won in 2010?
Conned again but now they deny they ever promised to create jobs.
You know, because Government can't create jobs..can they? Heard of teachers, policemen, and firemen? Naw..didn't think so.
