    They would rather stick with the devil they know since it can't get better for them.

    ironically

    Rangle won his seat by presenting himself as a clean cut man that would do away with the criminality of his predecessor.

    Government goodies always trumps corruption.
    They are New Yorkers, just like Californians, they want their entitlements. :)
    Wouldn't you too, if you could sit around all day and do nothing, while you get paid a monthly check, have your groceries paid for, your apt. paid for, your utilities paid for, your schooling paid for, your health care paid for?
    Sweet deal, so whats a little corruption?

    His district has a history of this. The guy Rangel replaced was even more corrupt, yet he was re-elected over and over.

    Nobody wants to be on welfare, it sucks, dupe. They DO have to work if able, food stamps are often not enough, the bureaucracy is neverendig, hater/dupe.

    It's not an entitlement attitude, it's the SECOND Pub Cronyism and greed Great World Depression Great job, and now they want to do it again- "I know, let's cut taxes on the rich and destroy Medicare!":eusa_liar::cuckoo::eusa_whistle:

    Romney's ACTUAL plan- Cut taxes on rich, destroy Medicare/aid, Health Reform, raise pentagon spending, cut regs on Wall St, worry about debt in 2035...BRILLIANT

    What color was his opponent? Coleman Young in Detroit kept his job for over 25 years by using having white men run against him.
