    And what I find amazing are the mind tricks that the GOP use on these folks to get them to vote for politicians who continue to stack the deck against them, constantly kicking them. I find that fascinating. It's like an an abused wife staying with her husband.

    Maybe you missed the memo that the rule change applies only to able-bodied people with no dependents. So perhaps you’d like to explain why you think society should subsidize the existence of people, with no dependents, capable of work but who refuse to do so.

    Tell the OP, not me. The OP says this effects black folks.

    I quoted your post. Not the OP. And agreed with you. I'm sure a good portion of the people who you meet at the Trump Fan Club meetings are on the dole.
    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

    Trump loves to abuse his loyalists, and apparently, they seem to enjoy it too. Maybe they find it erotic that a fat slob of a man abuses them. It's kinky.

    Well it disadvantages anyone poor, happy now? Trump hates all poor people, is that the position we're supposed to take? Hardly a ringing endorsement either is it. It's also probably true, but it does affect minorities, and he did ask them what they have to lose.

    How Would Trump's Food Stamp Cuts Hurt Americans? Let Us Count the Ways - Modern Farmer

    According to the Pew study cited above the percentage of African Americans who use food stamps is double that of whites (hispanics are at about 40% more), which should come as no surprise because they are economically less well off (also from the study, not my apparently dark racist soul). Therefore when Trump asked poor communities, particularly black communities, ;What have you got to lose?' Now we know the answer - a measure of economic support and food security.

    So let's discuss the policy instead of calling each other names. I didn't 'bring race into this' because race and economics cannot really be separated anyway as long as there remains deep disparity along ethnic divisions.
    “Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate. He's weak and he's ineffective. So the only way he figures that he's going to get reelected, and as sure as you're sitting there, is to start a war with Iran.” - Donald J. Trump
