The GOP would be smart to put this in ALL of their ads for ALL candidates from now until November.  It can't be stressed enough.


What is concerning is that Trump is more socialist than Obama. He has increased total spending and domestic spending.

Republican's are abandoning capitalism as fast as the Dems.

Its a little too simplistic, and ignores the societal cost of poverty.... 
 
If your local city is over run by homelessness, and you have to step over a dozen people sleeping on the sidewalk to go downtown, you aren't going to enjoy the city the same. Maybe you don't go there anymore, city continues to wither away and die. Then it takes down the surrounding suburbs, and continues metasticizing. 


Oh you mean Portland? Yes.. I don't go downtown or to Portland in general because of it. Human sh!t and piss, campsites, on the sidewalks is why... My wife works there an pays 9.5% state income tax. Portland caters to the homeless... look up "Urban Camping" laws...

They tax the fock out of the working people... homeless go there in droves because Portlands the best!!

Seattle is trying its best to compete with PDX. You mention your wife pays income tax because she works there. Do you live in WA then?

We have friends down in Vancouver.  Whenever I've visited him it seemed like nothing but suburbia with tons of shopping plazas.  Guess I missed the hipster part of town.

If you are poor it is your own fault.

For some this is true, but not others. How many you believe fall in each group is a major determinate of your political beliefs.

My point is that there is value to everyone in alleviating poverty. How that is done is up for fair debate.

Spending cuts without any tax hike concessions are immoral

actually there isn't

 

all that will ever be done is moving the poverty level.  There will always be the haves and the have mores.  Poverty in the US is 95% better than the avg income of the rest of the world

 

lets just say for example everyone gets 20k a year, the person who is dumb and lazy will still struggle to get by as prices rise.  The person with drive, work ethic and intelligence will rise, making those that couldnt want more

If you are able bodied with no mental disorders it is your own fault. Better?

A little, but still plenty of reasons not to succeed. And you’re excluding a sh!t ton of people already from your original statement.

I've said something very similar to one of my conservative buddies.  He was talking about it from a motivation standpoint, and I responded with it comes down to what level of motivation do we accept as the minimum.  and with the money example, I said if you gave everyone a million dollars, the guy with 1 million is broke.

Yep.

 

You raise the poverty level, corporations will raise the cost of products to continue to extract the same amount of $ from the poor. That's why $15 an hour won't work. The minute you do that, corporate America will want that extra $.
