    Trump slashes taxes for the rich

    And like most republicans he borrows the money to pay for it. So we have trillion dollar deficits in what trump calls a booming economy.

    Republicans hate the social safety net. They would eliminate it all if they could including social security and medicare.

    Hell no, it isn't just blacks. Or Mexicans either. It's a ton of Trump supporting redneck trailer dwellers on welfare too.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    I mean, black people are disproportionately on social safety net programs, so cuts to those programs disproportionately affect black people.

    Do you need to be shown this? Is this news to you?

    Yes. Demonstrate with data to show that the proposed cuts disproportionately affect Blacks to a degree that justfies singling Blacks out as victims.

    Shameful.

    Nobody buys the notion that someone who points out racial disparity is being racist. It's childish trolling and a right wing trope.

    And apparently nobody here has the stones to address the topic - they're all opting for schoolyard taunts instead.

    My position is that poor people of color stand to lose from this policy. Trump asked African Americans 'what have you got to lose?' Well for those on food stamps, they may lose that, because he never cared to make lives better for those who are disadvantaged.

    Now explain how this policy helps poor communities and people of color, or go troll another thread.

    When ever the government tightens it belt and tries to reign in spending anybody who received money is going to "suffer". Who is really going to be affected? Looks like those who aren't willing and are able to find work for themselves or at least say they are trying by filling out an application once a week. How many people will it effect? Not very many. And our society will benefit as whole from it. How effected are those people gonna be, well if most of them fill out applications then they wont be effected at all, the ones that don't will see their amount of food supply lowered. But its not like they are going to starve. They still will have plenty food.
    Thank you for bringing something else to the table.

    If we let the hyper-rich raid the treasury just a few more times, there will be so much prosperity for everyone that we won't need essential social safety nets!

    Yee haw

    Perhaps they can afford to cut food stamps because there are 3.6 million fewer food stamp recipients...because more people than ever today are WORKING.

    That would only be the case if blacks were specifically targeted for cuts. The reality is that there are 3.6 million fewer food stamp recipients...and no identification that the cuts will prevent service to those that still need it.

So if what you’re telling me is that there are 3.7 million able-bodied people in this country with no dependents - who are sitting on their duffs all day and can’t even be bothered to so much as fill out a job application every once in awhile - collecting SNAP benefits then I say good. Kick them out. They can get a job, go to a soup kitchen, or starve to death.
    Your compassionate conservatism is making me all misty eyed. Yeah **** those lazy ass welfare mooches collecting $4.00 a day so they can eat. The homeless, elderly collecting SS, employed single mothers. Screw those bums!
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.
