Political Rifts Over Bill Clinton’s Welfare Law Resurface as Aid Shrinks

7. Yup, it's a required attitude for RepubliCONS

 

But it's sad to say It seems to be the attitude for Hillary supporters too.

Hard hearted nastiness is now in vogue.

2. Empathy isn't a strong suit for the Clintons. But that's cool with their fans, they don't

 

care about the poor, they are too busy with their adoration to care about the poor.

8. Privatization of entitlements has already started.

Medicaid is no longer handled by the government. The insurance companies now run Medicaid, and the government pays the insurance companies. EBT or SPAN or Food Stamps, whatever you want to call it, is now run by a bank. The government puts money in the bank which then doles out the money to the EBT card. You have a company, with it's hand out standing between the people and the government.

So, instead of the government hiring American workers to help the American people, these companies can and do hire foreign workers to do those jobs.

9. Exactly! I should have said the completion of privatizing them.

Eventually we'll have no one working in Government who's not a contracted employee. You will need an approved lobbyist to represent your needs to the legislature and the remaining agencies, and proof not only that you were born a citizen but that you own enough stock in the Government to qualify for services.

"If you have to ask you can't afford to be a citizen", will be the catch phrase if not actual policy.
