Handouts won't help the poor get jobs

Success - Article sent! close

Did you know more people are killed in Chicago that Afghanistan? At least 275 so far this year -- nine young people shot in one day alone. You don't suppose that a small part of the cause is the excessive taxation and regulation, do you? Did you know that over 200,000 people left Chicago in the last 10 year, not counting the ones that went feet first.

Progressive liberalism doesn't teach the value of hard work and success, it gives people food (stamps) and does not teach the value to work and earn a living without government handouts. Did you know that nationally black unemployment went from 13.6 percent in May to 14.4 percent in June, and the jobless rate for young black people ages 16 to 19 went from 35.2 percent to 44.2 percent? Our leader says we are on the "right path." Seems like the president's hope and change means there is no hope that things will change soon.
