“Just found out the COLA increase for 2014 is 1.5 percent. Guess I’ll buy a Porsche.”

“Thanks to N.J. Gov. Chris Cristie I had to explain to my grand children that Trolls don’t always live under the bridges they block, they can occupy the governors office.”

“So Sen. Marco Rubio thinks the war on poverty is a failure and should end. I’m afraid that his youth and inexperience has let him to draw a wrong conclusion. The war on poverty did not fail. Congress failed. They failed by cutting funds for programs that worked. And the cutting started early in the life of the war on poverty. They failed by not protecting well paying American jobs. They failed by not funding infrastructure upkeep. and the list goes on. It seems that any program that helped the ordinary worker they were against.”

“There is no war on the poor. Safety net programs are now just bargaining chips. The poor just get caught up in a struggle for political power, and end up suffering just for being in the way with nowhere else to go.”
