8. Ronald Reagan's real legacy...
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 12:36 AM by tjwash
Welfare queens driving welfare Cadillacs, and buying fillet mignon and champagne with their food stamps.

If you repeat a lie often enough, right wing dumbasses will believe it. Back then, it diverted public attention from insider traders in their limousines who were stealing thousands of times more from the American people than the mythical "Welfare Queens" ever could.

Remember when Bush Sr. bailed out the Savings & Loans industry with $500 billion of the taxpayer's money? That was enough to fund 20 years of federal AFDC.
