Fox News: Ban Welfare Babies

Fox News: Ban Welfare Babies


MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES HAVE
BEEN SPREADING ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS ONE WAY TO HELP
OUT THE WORKING POOR. FOX NEWS HAS A DIFFERENT
THEORY, IT DOESN’T INVOLVE PAY AT ALL, THEY SHOULD GIVE UP
THE RIGHT TO BEAR CHILDREN. LET’S WATCH. SOME PEOPLE ABUSE THE SYSTEM. BUT THERE ARE OTHERS WHO RUN
INTO A TOUGH SPOT AND THEY MIGHT HAVE TO GO ON PUBLIC
ASSISTANCE FOR A WHILE. WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH PUTTING
A LIST OUT THERE OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WINDING UP WITH
MONEY OUT OF TAXPAYERS POCKETS? THE REAL SHAME HERE IS THAT
OUR MINIMUM WAGE IN THIS COUNTRY IS A POVERTY WAGE. THE FACT IS, IT IS NOT ENOUGH
ANYMORE TO LIFT A FAMILY OF THREE OUT OF POVERTY. RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE TO $12
AN HOUR WOULD SEE SAVE $53 BILLION IN FOOD STAMPS
OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS. THAT IS THE WAY TO GET PEOPLE
OFF PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. IT SOUNDS LIKE SHE WOULD
LIKE TO SEE A LIST OF THE EMPLOYERS WHO ARE PAYING
LESS THAN $15 AN HOUR. WELL, LET’S NOT SHAME THE
PEOPLE WHO ARE CREATING JOBS RATHER THAN WHO ARE ON
WELFARE. OF COURSE, SHE’S GOT HALF
THE TABLE RIGHT. OF COURSE, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE
ON ASSISTANCE WILL EXPLODE BECAUSE OF ALL THE JOBS THAT
WILL BE KILLED BY RESULTING ñ AS A RESULT OF RAISING
THE MINIMUM WAGE. THE PROBLEM IS, A FAMILY OF
THREE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE LIVING ON A MINIMUM WAGE. IF YOU’RE MAKING MINIMUM
WAGE, YOU SHOULDN’T BE HAVING CHILDREN AND TRYING TO
RAISE A FAMILY. THAT IS ONE OPINION. IT IS ALMOST LIKE RIPPED RIGHT
FROM THE PARABLES OF JESUS. THE OLD GOOD FOR PEOPLE,
KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS. ALSO, I LIKE HOW HE SAYS OH, WE
DON’T WANT TO SHAME JOB CREATORS. LET’S SHAME POOR PEOPLE.
YOU ARE POOR, SHAME ON YOU. T’IS THE ONE THING THAT
PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND WELFARE HAVE LACKED. NOBODY HAS EVER TRIED TO
MAKE THEM FEEL SHAME. IT IS TRULY AMAZING. WHO RAISED THESE PEOPLE? ASSHOLES. YES. PROBABLY UPPER-CLASS ASSHOLES. FIRST OF ALL, SHOULD WE SHAME
JOB CREATORS, OR THE PEOPLE ON WELFARE? HOW ABOUT WE TALK ABOUT THE
POLICY THAT WOULD DO BEST FOR THIS COUNTRY. COULD THERE HAVE BEEN A LESS ñ MORE SEXIST RESPONSE
THAN WHAT HE DID? THIS IS EASY TO DEBUNK BECAUSE
THOSE GUYS NEVER QUOTE STUDIES. THERE ARE NO STUDIES THAT SHOW
THAT RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE HURTS THE ECONOMY.
IT’S CHANGING ECONOMICS. THE SUPPLY-SIDE OF ECONOMICS IS
YOU GIVE MONEY TO THE RICH GUY WHO OWNS THE THING, AND THEN
HE IS GOING TO SPEND THAT MONEY, AND THAT
WILL
CREATE COMMERCE. THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS, THAT
GUY CAN ONLY BUY ONE YACHT. HE WILL PROBABLY ONLY
BUY FIVE OR 10 CARS. BUT IF HE HAS 2000 OR 3000 EMPLOYEES, THEY WILL BUY 2000 OR
3000 CARS. SO, IF YOU GIVE THEM THE MONEY,
THAT IS WHAT REALLY HELPS BOOST THE ECONOMY. THAT GUY WOULD MAKE EVEN
MORE MONEY, WHICH IS WHAT HAPPENED UNDER FDR. HE TOLD PEOPLE AFTER
WORLD WAR I TO DO THIS. HE SAID IF YOU DON’T DO THIS,
WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO IS CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT WERE GREAT
WING DEMAGOGUES CAN COME ALONG AND TAKE CONTROL OF THE
COUNTRY, WHICH IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH HITLER. AFTER WORLD WAR II, EVERYONE
SAID WE SHOULD’VE LISTENED TO KEYNES. THEY DID WHAT HE
SAID, AND REBUILT GERMANY. NOW GERMANY IS A STRONG ECONOMY. WITH
ETHICAL COMPANIES LIKE VW. SO, DON’T LISTEN TO THOSE
PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE WILL COST JOBS. IT DOESN’T DO ANY OF THOSE
THINGS. IT HELPS PEOPLE. IT IS WHAT FDR DID, BUT THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY GOT HIJACKED BY BILL CLINTON AND HIS
NEO-LIBERALISM, AND NOW WE HAVE LOST OUR ROOTS. NOW ñ IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING, YOU KNOW
BARACK OBAMA DURING THE CRISIS IN 2008 AND 2009, HE CAME TO THE
BANKERS AND SAID I AM THE ONE WHO’S GOING TO PROTECT YOU FROM
THE WRATH OF THE PITCHFORK MOB. HE DID DO THAT, SO THAT IS WHAT
IS WRONG WITH OUR ECONOMY. WE DON’T HAVE TWO PARTIES
WITH TWO DIFFERENT IDEAS. WITH THE DEMOCRATS AND THE
REPUBLICANS IN BED WITH THE SAME ECONOMIC PEOPLE WITH THE
SAME ECONOMIC POSTER POLICY, WHICH IS WHY
WE’RE STILL WHERE WE ARE. I LOVE THE IDEA THAT IF YOU
JUST GIVE THEM MORE MONEY THEY WILL SPEND IT. WHAT DOES TRUMP HAVE? A
COUPLE BILLION? HE HAS 10 BILLION, AND
HE WILL SPEND IT IMMEDIATELY. IF YOU GIVE $100 TO ME, I
SPEND IT. I NEED TO SPEND IT. IF YOU GOOGLE BANNED TED
TALK, THERE IS A MILLIONAIRE GUY WHO
EXPLAINS ALL OF THIS QUICKLY. WHICH IS WHY THEY ACTUALLY
BANNED THAT TED TALK. JAYAR, WHY DID YOU EDIT
OUT HIS EXPLANATION OF ALL THE SOURCES FOR THAT? ANYWAY,
THERE, DON’T HAVE KIDS ANYMORE. YOU WILL SAVE MONEY THAT WAY. I HEAR THAT IF IT IS OUTSIDE
YOUR BUDGET, IT ENRICHES YOUR LIFE. WE STILL HAVE A LITTLE BIT
MORE ON STEVE DUCEY. REBECCA I WILL GIVE YOU THE
FINAL WORD. WE HAVE RESEARCH FINDING THAT
THE COST OF LOW WAGES IN THIS COUNTRY IS $152 BILLION
PER YEAR, THAT IS TAXPAYERS SUBSIDIZING LOW WAGES IN THE
FORM OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE. THAT IS THE PROBLEM HERE.
LET’S RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE. WE HAVE HAD SEVEN YEARS
OF THE OBAMA ECONOMY. THAT IS THE REASON PEOPLE ARE
NOT MAKING THAT MUCH. WHY NOT JUST GUESS? HE EVEN HAS TO LOOK DOWN. THE LITTLE PIECE OF
SHAME CREPT IN THERE. THE SHAME THAT SHOULD BE
ON THE POOR WAS ON HIM. THANKFULLY SHE WAS DOING THE
RIGHT THING AND POINTING OUT HOW MUCH MONEY
COULD BE SAVED. THANKFULLY, DESPITE THE FACT
THAT WE HAVE THE MOMENTUM ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL, THERE
HAVE BEEN A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT CITIES THAT HAVE
TAKEN IT UPON THEMSELVES INCLUDING LA, AND
THAT IS A GOOD SIGN.

  1. Holy fuck! Welfare people don't want to get off welfare! They get free healthcare too. Fuck me man. Welfare people should not be having kids when they are on welfare!!! That is fucking stupid! You fucking leftists are stupid! I don't want to pay for other people's kids. If you guys want to, go ahead. It should be a choice.

  2. How about we stop having medicaid cover epidurals. Lets see how many kids they have then lol Also, lets make it free to get your tubes tied.

  3. ….damn….i don't see why you shouldn't be allowed to have kids you can't support…..the entire black community is based on this "right"

  4. You heterosexuals keep having babies knowing full well you can't afford it but you know what, it is what it is! We need to raise the minimum wage, people will spend more. How come things like RENT and COLLEGE go up SO MUCH every year but NOT the minimum wage!?

  5. Hit the poor from all sides keep them in their place at the bottom of the pile! the Republicans have a severe humanity deficit.

  6. These Fox news sociopaths are revolting.
    They seem to have no problem with welfare bailouts for
    the rich, only for the poor who make (almost literally)
    "starvation wages" at minimum wage jobs.
    It probably never occurred to to these economic idiots that,
    if poor people were paid the wages they deserved–and have
    EARNED–they would spend their money to CREATE many
    more jobs than would be "lost" due to the "employer's burden"
    of paying more.
    Also, too many (though not ALL) "pro-lifers" share these views.
    This is why so many doubt their sincerity.

  7. since corporations are the biggest recipients of welfare banning all babies born to corporate America. sounds good since they dont pay taxes to support America and take jobs from Americans ..

  8. since corporations are the biggest recipients of welfare banning all babies born to corporate America. sounds good since they dont pay taxes to support America and take jobs from Americans ..

  9. NO ONE has the 'right' to bear children.

    BTW, I agree that putting money in the hands of the workers will result in more of it going into the local economy. However, a higher wage DOES mean fewer jobs.

  10. I believe the last stat was 1 out of 3 children live in a household receiving foodsatmps. There is something seriously wrong when the wealthiest most powerful nation in history has 1/3rd of their children in households that can't afford food.

  11. At 3:30 Jimmy Dore explains basic economics. It's so simple, but the way we have let the rich take over our tax policy would indicate the US lawmakers have no idea how basic economics works.

  12. the government is absolutely for a higher minimum wage, when you think about it, because a higher minimum wage means higher taxes for the companies that have to pay more money.

    as for the welfare babies, anyone who takes public assistance should have to limit the size of their family this business of making more more babies, just to collect more and more welfare has always been ridiculous

  13. A simple fact. Min wage has not kept up with inflation and it has eroded to the point where it is less than what it was 40 years ago after factoring inflation. That's easy to see when you look at min wage history all the way back to 1975 and see it didn't go up every year like living expenses do. Min wage in 1975 was $2.10 hr. That translates to $9.12 an hour in todays dollars. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour and has been since 2009, which means minimum wage has actually gone down. How many prices for goods have remained at 2009 levels?

  14. Oh so, rounding up a list of gun owners is bad but, rounding up a list of people on welfare is good??? Have these idiots ever read the book "1984"? Rounding up people just because they are poor is kind of fascist. And what kind of idiot thinks that there are enough above minimum wage jobs for the adult population of this country. Reality is that lots of adults with families have minimum wage jobs because that's all they can get. It'd be nice if that weren't true, but it is. FOX and the republitards don't live in the real world.

  15. But if minimum wage is raised, prices for everything will rise because corporations aren't about to lose money. If they have more money going out, they have to keep the same amount or more, coming in. Walmart may pay their employees more but they raise prices to make up for it. I'm for raising minimum wage. I just don't see it making a difference.

  16. I think its obvious. IF you are not making enough money, why would you want to have children and put them through it too?

  17. shame the people creating jobs? you mean, the slave masters?
    though i don't see a problem with welfare queens closing their fucking legs. They give welfare a bad name.
    Exhibit A:
    https://youtu.be/RBqjZ0KZCa0

  18. Forced Minimum wages are bad for workers. It takes away the workers right to sell their work for whatever they choose; it reduces their options and their civil freedoms. But a forced minimum wage also takes away entry level jobs. So it's double bad for workers.

    Ask yourself, if minimum wage is so great, why don't we raise it to $500/hr so that everyone can be wealthy? No employer can afford to pay workers more than they're worth. There's just no logic in it, I can't believe IQ's are so low that people would buy these ideas.

  19. tl;dr
    I work my * off and pay into student loans so some guy named Joe can stay home and enjoy himself with new stuff: TV's, cars, stereos, and all sorts of alcohol. I'm glad I'm being punished for doing what we were told we should do.

    ts;nm
    Let's see… I have years in school and student debt that will take some time to pay off, I drive an old beat up car, and because I somehow make it to another tax bracket I'm required pay a chunk of my check to the government for assistance programs. My previous neighbors were on assistance(welfare, food stamps, and section 8) and had several kids, let's call the guy Joe, I knew Joe to an extent: no one seemed to work(always at the house, it was hard to not notice them there all the time), 65"-75" TV, tons of stereo equipment, smoking carton after carton and leaving them in the yard, new car, and they got drunk and loud every night.. And now, here's some caps! Enjoy!: PLEASE PUNISH US WHO HAVE TO ACTUALLY WORK FOR A LIVING! ON TOP OF THAT, KEEP MAKING US HAVE A LOWER QUALITY OF LIFE THAN THE GUY NEXT DOOR WHO TRADES HIS FOOD STAMPS FOR CASH AND GET'S HIMSELF LIQUOR WITH IT! PLEASE TAKE MOST OF THE MONEY I SPENT YEARS OF MY LIFE TO TRAIN FOR AND GIVE IT TO JOE SO HE CAN GET A ***** ESCALADE AND KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT FROM HIS MUSIC CONSTANTLY BLARING! – I don't mind helping the needy, Joe isn't needy, he's using the system. If I didn't need to give so much money to the gov, I could pay off my student loans, donate a ton to the local homeless shelter, and even help my parents who have disabilities. So.. thanks gov parties, thanks people like you guys, if it wasn't for the majority of the American people screaming for more assistance and higher minimum wages, I would have to suffer the quality of life Joe has, poor Joe… poor poor Joe. I should stop by, maybe I can collect the plethora of beer cans by that apt and recycle them for gas money.

  20. If the minimum wage had been keyed to inflation when it was first established, it would be nearly $16.00 an hour now, Also, republicans are all about hands-off government for the rich. But get right in there and regulate the personal lives of the non-rich. Regulate reproductive rights. The poor get repression first, then it'll be the middle class. Wake up, America. They want us all to be serfs and slaves to the billionaire class. Unionize. Vote Bernie.

  21. In addition to everything else that's been said, the Fox News journalist said people on minimum wage shouldn't try to raise a family, yet they want to defund Planned Parenthood which offers contraceptives to low-income adults, AND they are against a woman having the right to choose to get an abortion. The hypocrisy is unreal.

  22. Maybe people who get assistance should be forced to sew a yellow $ on their clothes………………..The U.S spends ONLY $5 Billion for food stamps a year?? That pisses me off.That is like 13 F-35's That's way LESS than tax credits to corporations who don't even pay tax! The GOP is rankled because of $5 Billion. I'm more pissed than EVER at them now.We're talking about hungry Americans and growing children and we will begrudge? That's 1/140th of military budget and the Congress is MAKING the Air Force and others to take equipment they neither want nor need. I'm morally..enraged? Disgusted?.. Cant find an apropos' word. Peace

  23. Jobs will be killed by raising the minimum raise? Besides that being a lie. The real point is either the government subsidies the pay for companies who under pay their workers or the companies pay their workers a living wage. If you can't pay your worker a living wage, then get out of business. Should the government take care of it's citizens or what? right now it's military spending first and citizens last.

  24. And don't bother talking anymore about the millions of people put on temporary hours (less than 28hours) because of Obamakare. Thanks furer Obama. More poor people than ever now since that little "help" from the Feds.

    Why don't you talk about that anymore?

  25. raising the minimum wage don't help because all of the company's and business will compensate the money lost in there prices how can you not see that this will just make everything go up in price and will devalue peoples savings

  26. I know a few "poor" people who are on state assistance (SSI, Food Stamps etc.). If you yay-hoos went to the street and watched/listened instead of talking from your leather chair and fancy clothes you wouldn't be saying all the things you are. There are more lazy, drug-infested, mentally ill "idiots" sucking a lot of cash out of us who work and taking away from the poor who really need it. I agree…we have to cut those low-life drugies off of any welfare or food stamps. They are nothing but liars. I have dealt with many of them…tried to get them jobs, gave them places to stay but all they want to do is hang-out at the streets and do their drugs and drink their booze. The people who really need assistance usually have a place to live  but lost their job or got sick or had something bad happen….the ones who do drugs and don't want a job need to be cut off!!!!

  27. Don't quote the Bible dude…you're very bad at it and it makes you look foolish. You need to grow up and stop acting like a 10 year old city-boy….Come-on we all know you have it in you….but this vid you sound very immature.

  28. One reason to now publish the names of welfare recipients is that some of them are running from domestic violence abusers and the abusers would know their addresses. They and their children would be at risk for harm.

  29. Its so sick to listen to rich American "job creators" who are used to exploiting desperate people to create their own wealth, and how they justify it. the US is a contry with little empathy for other humans, the successful ones are the ones willing to sacrifice as many other people's happiness as it takes to fill their own pockets.

  30. Jimmie Dore, I'm coming to the golden coast to find you and smoke vast quantities of high grade cannabis and hash with you. You're fuckin legend.

  31. People who can take care of children shouldn't have any. Not that it should be a law, because that would be totalitarianism, but it is common sense

  32. okay say you sterilize people on welfare… with the middle class disappearing and jobs are paying less then what people are used to making… our population will drop incredibly. loads of people are on welfare and they may be working 40 hours a week to provide for their kids that they probably had before things went south. but since the argument is to sterilize people on welfare I', assuming that the kids will also be sterilized. who will provide labor for all the people who live with out food stamps or medicare, or housing etc?

  33. These conservatives who are pro-life but also anti poor, have a skewed view on reality. They don't want you to abort the fetus, but won't help you financially raise it either. So they must think that the minute you get pregnant, you can in a span of 8 months (usually takes 1 to confirm pregnancy) go from a job at McDonalds to suddenly being a doctor or accountant or computer programmer. Idiots!

  34. most people are poor for a reason, its because theyre stupid. And stupid people shouldn't be breeding, plaguing the world with even more idiots living off welfare. Sick of living in a society where the lazy, stupid, degenerates overpopulate the world at the expense of the people who actually work.

  35. Why don't he tell his God Squad friends to stop telling the poor every sperm is sacred;  abortion is an heinous crime against Jesus;  and sex education should be left to parents etc etc. The hypocritical position of the Right on birth-rates speaks to the general  interests of ruling elites – in that they need the poor to reproduce at an higher rate than the wealthy – given too many people chasing finite resources creates profits – but at the same time, the poverty created by over population must be blamed on the poor themselves – on their ignorance and promiscuity.

  36. The jobs are there they just don't wanna work because they make more on benefits….they should keep it in their pants

  37. Welfare recipients should be fixed as long as they draw public funds. Sounds fair to me; doesn't have to be permanent.

  38. Gee, that makes sense, if you're in the middle class and something happens that pushes you into the welfare class you just bump off all your kids until you're back on you feet, novel idea

  39. Lots of other countries, namely nearly all of northern Europe, and Australia, have raised their minimum wages to a "livable wage". They have fewer problems than we do. Employment did not drop, it increased. Why? With more money circulating in the economy more people could afford to BUY more stuff. When Hedge Fund creeps put their money in the Cayman Islands it no longer circulates in the economy. It is the CIRCULATION of money that creates prosperity, not the stashing of huge sums in offshore accounts. More money in the hands of the average person = more money spent on goods = more DEMAND = more production = more overall prosperity.

    None of this is economic theory anymore. We have tried this under F. D. Roosevelt and it WORKED. We tried the opposite under G. W. Bush and it FAILED. I can go back in history to the 1810s where the experiment has been repeatedly tried. Supply side economics only makes the rich richer and the economy stagnates. Demand side economics tends to help both the rich and the rest. So why do the rich not see this. Because they are GREEDY. Greed is a mental defect, a disease and must be treated as such. Greedy people need to be regulated as a result. Read the history of a man by the name of Ferdinand Pecora, a man who reigned in financial abuses in the 30s. What he did worked. What the lax or no regulation during the 1880-1890's did was trash the poorer and working class. We had high taxes but poor regulation in the 50's under Republican president Dwight D. Eisenhower–the economy was okay, but not great. I could go on, but history is replete with this same lesson, and only this country seems to be unable to learn from history. Other countries have and in general they do better than we do. I can only ascribe this to poor education, lots of dumb asses with empty heads falling for propaganda, and the general dislike of being smart that is so prevalent in the United States. If we keep following the path of allowing Wall Street and the wealthy to control the show, this country faces complete economic obliteration. (Read one of the recent TIME magazine articles on this–when big media sees the problem, you know it's almost too late.

  40. meanwhile corporate welfare dwarfs ALL public welfare combined. Media
    is owned by huge corps who have a vested interest in humping welfare
    queen narratives like this so you wont see their corp jet subsities.
    wake up ppl

  41. Very true! If you're making minimum wage YOU SHOULDN'T BE HAVING CHILDREN!! Why are you having kids you cannot afford?!?!?!

  42. I had to go on public assistance many years ago. Now I am on SS. I can not work any longer, So my youngest daughter and I have to support her as she has five illnesses that makes it impossible to work. Her father walked out long before she was born. Not everyone has a baby just to get money.Also have any of you read the application it takes to apply for help? Well, when you have read it there are 2 questions that should make you blush.1. Asks who you were with that month and the other WHO WAS IN ROOM during that time. Please

  43. "Don't shame poor people!" scream the lefties, when all they do is portray the poor as virtuous and oppressed and abdicate them of all responsibility. Single motherhood has been praised and encouraged by the left, the government incentivises it; the fact that poor people have allowed welfare to pay them a wage that their own underdeveloped skills can't earn is not the problem of business owners.

    Lefties must be so devoid of self control and discipline to think that people have no choice in having children and so entitled to think that the world owes them money to do so.

    You raise the minimum wage and you kill jobs and if you can't afford children then you don't have them, it's as simple as that. Lefties are such cowards in the face of such obvious realities.

  44. The moral of the story font have kids if you can't aford them it's simple as that like me I'm never haveing children because I carnt aford to keep children dumb people on this channel

  45. If nothing we can guarantee raising the minimum wage negatively impacts the lowest skilled workers. The minimum wage is a job for the minimally skilled. The higher you raise the wage the higher the skill required. This explains our high unemployment rate, which doesn't include people that have stopped looking for work. If you want $12 then earn it somewhere else; don't artificially raise the value of low skilled positions. You're going to make it better for those that already have work and make it worse for people that dont.

  46. FORCED STERILIZATION? IS THAT WHAT I I'M HEARING? ANYONE WHO SUGGEST THAT SHOULD HAVE THEIR OWN JUNK FIXED JUST FOR SUGGESTING IT.

  47. Immigrants with citizen children seem to be a problem if on welfare, but I wonder. Should America start considering welfare funds to these children as a loan that will eventually be paid back in federal taxes once these kids age into voting adults?

  48. Man I can't believe I use to sometimes listen to John. I love how he pulls the super leftist tactic of bringing up jesus/the bible and cries sexism. Holy shit these guys are mental

  49. Minimum wage was not designed to support a family. It was designed for kids/or maybe even seniors who work part time or while at school, at places like McDonalds for example, and other kinds of jobs not requiring a "degree". You can not raise a family on min wage. You can't. I do agree on one thing. If you have fallen on hard times, unemployment, or even become disabled (while you already had yr family) and then end up on public assistance, the govt will support your family. You SHOULD NOT be allowed to have even MORE children while on public assistance. Having MORE kids when you can not support the ones you already have is irresponsible to the hilt and drains the "system" even further. BIRTH CONTROL, folks!
    And get this. One in four girls in the US are sexually abused. The only "way out" they think they have, is to get OUT of the house and away from the abusers. They often intentionally get pregnant so the govt. will support them, with an apt., money and food stamps, etc etc.

  50. i finally agree with Steve Douchy, if people are welfare queens, put their name in the paper; first we'll start with the rich pigs that such off the taxpayer…

  51. America is a low wage society. Working people have been under attack since Reagan and working people have only themselves to blame. When you vote for corporate lackey's expect to get poorer.

  52. on about the pittance that goes on welfare isis is driving about blillions worth of vehicles and weapons prioritise machines of death but few dollars for food aw naw thats extravegant,you can tell just how the dynamic is by treatment of the weakest in society,

  53. So when you have a kid and the factory closes… you get the minimum wage job and… Put down the kid?

    Sometimes the kids come BEFORE the shitty job…

  54. If you cannot be financially responsible for bringing another life into this world until he or she can take care of themselves than yes you shouldn't have a child. Why is this even a source of political debate?

  55. The REPUBLICAN DO NOT CREATE JOBS, THE REPUBLICAN OUTSOURCE JOBS, THE REPUBLICANS SEND OUR JOBS TO INIDA,VEITNAM ,THE PACIFIC RIM. ITS SEEMS THE REPUBLICAN ARE ALL ABOUT JOBS THAT PAY THEM MILKIONSBUT HAT THE MIDDLE CLASS. TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS IS AN ILLUSION. THE REPUBLICANS ARE COUURPT. yes invent to yell

  56. We shouldn't have poverty in our country. All wages should be at a decent rate to curtail welfare . The money that goes to welfare should be going to a wage that is decent for all . Yes , those who are educated should make a lot of money and more but  $7. 25 a hour is a crime . Those employers  are making our 100 % on what they pay for grunt labor . Sure flipping a burger isn't a big deal but you go  there to eat and what you pay for a big mac is more than a employee makes a hour is my point . They can afford to pay more a hour . Most places cant get people to work there . Wonder why . What our president spent going to his properties so far is 108 times at 3 mil a pop not including local police and he want to cut healthcare . We shouldn't have any poor in our country folks , unless they want to be poor because of substance abuse and even then they should be helped off it .

  57. Most of the poor are white. If you the husband works and the wife takes care of the children, contractor husband dies of skin cancer, wife with kids ends up on welfare for a few years, until wife gets through nursing school and supports family. I think that's a great use of welfare and I've seen it more than once. Screw that jerk.

  58. The minimum wage was never meant to be used to support a family. It was meant for teenagers getting their first job, and for young adults who are working their way through college. It wasn't meant for Cladubba to use it to her and her five bastard, piece of shit kids.

  59. How about a list of the companies who pay their workers so little that they have to get food stamps, rental assistance, etc. People keep acting life welfare pays more than a job. IT DOESN'T. SOCIAL SAFETY NET PROGRAMS PROVIDE ENOUGH TO BRING PEOPLE TO THE LOWEST RUNG OB THE LADDER – THE LOWEST LEVEL OF POVERTY.

    On another note in the same vein, a majority of abortions performed are children that would have been living in poverty because women are making the decision based on primarily economic reasons. They simply cannot afford to have a child, do not have parental leave, and no affordable, safe, reliable child care.

  60. I work in Santa Monica CA, our minimum wage is $14.25 and to anyone earning that as an hourly wage simply or isn’t making enough to live in Los Angeles. Why? Because no matter how high anyone sets the minimum wage it doesn’t solve the problem of cost of living and housing. And no rent control won’t solve that problem either. All raising the minimum wage will do is destroy small business owners while large businesses remain on top.
