Aren't they the ones saying the government shouldn't help the poor, it should be left up to charities?

    I guess I don't understand the furor here when it's basically what Republicans have been saying for years.
    The government should help the poor. Help them get jobs. Help them get off drugs, get out of crime ridden areas, and that kind of thing. I'm a republican. I don't like welfare because I don't think it works. If it did, then the generations of people ON welfare wouldn't be on welfare anymore.

    if it's true, it's indefensible... though i have no doubts some will try to defend it ( as some already are)


    folks who pull these kind of stunts have no place educating our children, period....end of story.... such people simply cannot be trusted.

    If you do not appreciate the idea this is what people think of you, then perhaps you ought to reflect on WHY this is the view of you.

    Do you deny Liberal/Progressives are encouraging illegal aliens to come here, and are providing safe harbor? The only reason the numbers have declined is because of the anemic recovery caused by the Presidents and Congresses inept efforts.
    I don't see anyone encouraging illegal immigration myself, but even if they are, somehow between Reagan's amnesty and Obama, 12 million arrived here, and now that the total is less than 12 million, it's a CRISIS!!! And it doesn't matter why, really. The fact is illegal immigration is less of a problem in 2105 than at any time since Reagan. Besides, Obama has deported more illegals than any POTUS in recent history. But it's still a CRISIS!! Gosh, can't figure out why that might be.....

    BTW, the people you're saying are getting a 'safe harbor' are children. Yeah, that's awful we're treating them humanly.

    False. It doesn't get more true by stating a falsehood again.

    But you WILL find Republicans who complain helping those who are poor is a waste of money.
    First, can you show me one such Republican that wants to abolish all assistance to the poor?

    Second, does that one Republican, assuming you find one, validate the blanket statement?

    I understand what you're saying. You're saying Republicans don't mind helping those who truly need it but don't want to help those who are lazy. I get it. But the Republican message has long been "it's not the government's job to help".
    False. Again, patently false.

    How about trying to give one that isn't a personal insult?

    I and others disagree with you, that IS the nature of debate. Now, if you could address in an adult way what it is about this "poll" that is any way NOT propaganda.

    Start with the limited and obviously left wing oriented options...if this is a survey where is "give to the poor with financial responsibility", instead it rests on a them of not at all, which is no one's ideology not matter how many times you insist every Republican on the face of the earth wants no help.
