12. Just because she's not a neo-Con,
She IS still Republican-Lite. Her husband is the fella who destroyed the welfare safety net. He did more damage to FDR's good work than any Republican before him.

Welfare DEFORM did the following:

* Encouraged poor people to have more babies, to get more benefits

* Made it so that married poor people without children can't get benefits

* Made it so that single people without children can't get benefits

* Made it so that disabled people, while waiting to be accepted (a process that usually takes years), can only get VERY low benefits (less than $200/month) for 18 months.


Kicking the poorest people in this society down, when they're wise enough not to have children they can't afford -- while forcing people into the choice of "breed, or go hungry" -- is not a Democratic value.
