9. When are we going to absorb and intellectualize one fact:
Poverty is not a concern of the Republican Party.

At least know you see it in concrete terms. How
long has Boehner been in Congress? He never promises
them anything so there can be no broken promises.

What no seems to get is the Republican World View?
It is kinda like an aristocracy--Upper Class and
Very Rich hold the power and then there are the
rest of us. Pretty much your status is of your
own making. If you are poor, it is pretty much
your own fault. You will never make a conservative
feel guilty. They purged the Moderate Republicans.

In order not to be absolutely heartless, they will
help the Poorest of the Poor. They want to have
proof that you are really as poor as you say and
are not trying to rip off the system.

They have been able to spread this since Regan Adm.

Check out other Republican's districts and states.
