    -12.2% of Asian Americans;
    -25.3% of Hispanics;
    -26.7% of African Americans;
    live in poverty. So we clearly see that poverty disproportionately affects black and brown Americans.
    yet they ignore advice that could change this:

Use the right to vote to encourage those lazy leeches to get off of their asses and get a job.

    I had heard of this guy but I don't think I've ever listened to him before. I have heard Rush and Hannity before but this guy seemed extreme even in comparison to those guys. Who in their right mind would really suggest that the poor should not be allowed to vote. Taking power away from people and handing it solely to the upper classes. And he was talking about this should be one of the platforms of the Republican party.

    What do you think?



    This idea, like a lot of wacky, un-democratic, ideas has some support.

    But it's not going to happen in the USA.

    Anyone who supports this idea should lose their right to vote (Sounds fair to me.).

    There is also nothing democratic about taking away some people's right to vote.

    Funny enough, most older Americans are on medicaire and social security and tend to vote republican.
    Some people don't really think about things before they start to rant.



    They really start thinking after some of the things that they rant for actually happen and they realize that they've shot themselves in the foot.

    The ACA is settled law in the USA and it is not going to go away.

    Deal with it.

    It will go away as it will not be sustainable no matter how much money is wasted on it. Obama is a POS as is Pelosi, Reid, and anyone else that supports it.

    It will not go away, but eventually it will be replaced by single-payer insurance which you will probably like even less.

    Wait and see.
