3. I didn't watch it.. I watched the show she did on Camden, NJ.. People thought
it would spark something.. an action towards poverty in America.. It didn't. Simply put, we allowed the Pukes to strip away the social safety networks and now we don't have them for those that actually need to use them.. the new poor.. the working poor/ lower middle class who have been barely hanging on for the last few years. Now, they are losing their jobs and they don't have any help. No services. Nobody to fight for them. I'm one of them.. if my hubby or myself loses our job or even loses any more hours, we will suffer greatly. My husband realized when he did the taxes this year (love him for doing that), that we made less money this past year than the year previously... Of course, his opportunities for overtime were decreased and the cost of our insurance increased.. So we made $4000.00 less than the year before. That hurts when you know gas was $4.00/ gallon during the summer months.
