    How would you suggest we, "genuinely" tackle poverty? We've been throwing money at poor people for decades. America has the richest poor people in the world. What's your solution?

    I agree with that and a good first step would be for politicians to stop killing jobs for political reasons.

    However, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink. Believe it, or not, there are a lot of poor people that are poor because they won't get off their asses and improve their lives.

    Maybe it has something to do with the Second Amendment?

    Progressives for some screwed up reason think scare-tactics will somehow get them what they want...

    IMO, an AR to a cats face is enough for them...

    They didn't even have 50 votes, let alone the 60 needed to pass a filibuster, so why bother? It wasn't about his supporting it or not.

    Please post that chart explaining how poor people aren't poor because 97% of them have refrigerators!

    And then explain to me how you see all these welfare queens buying food with EBTs but holding an iphone, as if an iphone means they aren't poor.

    Dingy Harry choose this course of non action for one reason and one reason ONLY, "red state democrats", which translates to him retaining leadership.

    I am glad to see the AWB foolishness being tabled once again. School shootings are a tragedy, but they won't be prevented through knee-jerk emotional legislation.

    Um, my post clearly indicates that you didn't say or do any of that. Requests generally imply a future tense.

    But when people start talking about how poor Americans aren't really poor, they start bringing up flat screens and iphones. And then they start with some low-level racial stereotyping, because they're always picturing black people when they picture this "welfare queen." I thought I'd head off that idiotic line of discussion, and it seems to have worked.
