    No it isn't. They're already paying well above minimum wage. Try your hyperbole elsewhere.

    Wasn't it you that said poor blacks don't vote? So, it's not really 85-90% is it? But of course it's possible, look at you. You seem entirely unaware of the entrenched racism in the Democratic party.

    But of course they didn't do it on their own...they needed your help, right?

    But then, I was not addressing jobs exclusively. You asked what was blocked, contending further that Obama has gotten everything he's asked for. Thus is was kid's play to hand you your ass.
    Oh, you weren't talking about jobs, exclusively, when teferring to the economy. I thought you people had outgrown all this spin.

    Actually I pointed to the fact that voter turnout is lower among the poor. So there no benefit in keeping voting age people poor, and especially not Blacks, who vote for Dem with remarkable consistency, and are more likely to go to the polls if they're better-off economically.

    So that could explain why Reps oppose poverty-reduction. Keep 'em poor and they won't be as likely to vote, since if they did voter in greater numbers, they'd do what the rest of the country has done 3 of the 4 last POTUS elections: vote more for Dems.

    Squandered it? He gave it back to the rightful owners, the US isn't a Bank. And what took us to the brink of depression was the forced lending policies of the Clinton administration. Bush tried to shore up the lending industry and the Dems blocked him. Try again.

    Because Libbos think black folks can't do it on their own.

    No. I was not talking about jobs exclusively when b-slapping a guy who claimed Obama has gotten everything he's asked for from Congress, which is ridiculous.
