Repealing The Poor

The Republicans newest war on poverty: Repeal the Poor.The first step is to take away Social Security, Food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, Housing support, support for education, and of course federal funding for abortion in he District of Columbia.  If the poor want a retirement they can work for it.  If the poor want an abortion they can pay for it.  If the poor want an education they can pay for it. If the poor want medical support they can pay for it.

Remember Johnson's War on Poverty?  The Republicans have decided that the only way to eradicate poverty is to repeal the poor.  John Boehner was overheard saying, "We've tried everything else to eliminate poverty and nothing seems to work.  The only thing left to do is make the poor disappear." 

The most despicable thing that was done by the President and the Democratic Party was to eliminate federal funding for abortion in the District of Columbia!  They great party of the people caved in on Woman's right to choose.  It's only D.C. you say?  You don't think the Republicans smell blood in the water?  And how is no less murder to allow a child to be born into a country that even refuses to recognize that they exist, let alone provide the necessary BASIC services like food, shelter and education.
