“The people of Crimea voted away freedom and self-reliance in favor of being provided sustenance from a Communist government. President Obama must be jealous of Putin.”

“Do you realize that the current minimum wage, if earned full time, is higher than the poverty line for households of one or two? $7.25 is only poverty if 1 adult is trying to support two (or more) kids. End poverty by ending out-of-wedlock births. Children need a mother and a father in their household. Two adults earning minimum wage, working full time can support three children above the poverty line. Raising the minimum wage will only continue to raise the poverty threshold. Those in poverty at $7.25 an hour will still be in poverty at $10.10 an hour, because everything will cost more! And a job will be even harder to find!”

“Hillary Clinton has finally done it! She stopped putting the blame on everything terrible that has happened in the world, since the dawn of time, on President George W. Bush, and is now putting it on President Obama. I guess that is what the Democrats call progress.”

“The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as ObamaCare, has made the buying and selling of health insurance one of the most complicated, deceptive disasters in history. With the expansion of Medicaid in 24 states and Washington, D.C. — and with predictions of major rate increases and insurance cost hikes of ObamaCare — enrollments for Medicaid is surging in many states.”
