    So you have zero instances of a Democrat doing that.

    Focus. Focus.
    I'm sorry that it bothers you so much when deceptive reporting is called out.

    I'm sorry you can't weigh in on something other than Fox News in a thread about the Census.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's exactly what needs to happen here, but the focus seems to be on Fox.

    The definition of welfare is used too broadly by both sides, which is why I mentioned "corporate welfare" in an earlier post. To me, welfare recipients are the people who get the check and the TracPhones simply because they exist. Senior SS recipients paid into SS their entire working careers. Not welfare, IMO.

    What would that proof look like to you? A transcript of every single statement that every single Democrat has ever made on social safety nets?

    Most people getting those checks and TracPhones are also working.

    Not in NH they aren't. We don't give welfare checks and TracPhones to people with jobs.

    I am sure that such people exist.

    Do we have a coincidental bumper crop of such people at the same time that there happens to have been a global economic crisis?
    I may be wrong.
