The safety net

is needed because of the last 40 years of the republican philosophy and results has decimated the country as a functioning society..

Raygun came to power and what did he do. He eviscerated the middle class and the working class by killing the unions. He then split the country along racial lines and told welfare Cadillac jokes and big buck jokes and demonized African Americans as leeches.

Next came the deindustrialization of America which hollowed out the middle class and eventually destroyed rural America.

Then he promoted that the individual to have no responsibility to the state so people think it is okay not to vaccinate because they think their individual rights are more important than the society at large.

So this has us where the government has to help everyone because the pay that the average worker receives is not enough to sustain a livelihood.

Our leaders should say this and point out what forty years of this perverted philosophy has done to the U.S.
