Catch me if you can.
The impovished and the distitude look toward charitable organizations for financial aid and support. These organizations receive financial contributions in-part from city, state and federal governments. Reps/Convervs consistently insist that the poor should look to charities for assistance. Unless I've missed something, I don't see the problem with the fed providing partical funding in the form of grants to charities to provide aid to the poor. They do it for major industries, i.e., oil companies and farming co-ops. Why should charities be excluded? In most cases, it's matching funds particularly with large charities or corporations. At least the funding is limited; when it runs out it runs out, and the charity has to reapply for the grant. Compare that to the federal welfare system which Reps/Conservs argue is a "revolving door of entitlements", I'd say it's a fair trade off.

Please show me some hungry kids and if the libs want the unempoyment benefits extended once again, all they have to do is take it out of the stimulous fund which they refuse to do.
The spending needs to stop.
