If the GOP is so good at ending poverty, then explain Appalachia. Or even Red States.

    Republicans, even at the USMB, constantly attack Democrats over poverty.

    But look at where the bulk of the poor in the United States live. In Appalachia. The largest depressed area in the United States covering 13 Red States.

    Study: Infant mortality up, life expectancy down in Appalachia

    The Cycle of Poverty in Appalachia Continues

    A View From Appalachia: Living Below The Poverty Line

    It was Appalachia that put Trump over the top.
    Ironically, it's been Democrats in Blue States who have actually benefited the most from Trump's policies.

    If the Republican base is so lost in poverty, why do Republicans believe they know the way out of poverty?

    No political party or legislation can end poverty.

    Get that through your head.

    Government cannot fix poverty. It never ever ever ever ever has and never will.

    There is no silver bullet for poverty. The ONLY thing that has ever come close is a free-market society.

    You don't believe infant mortality is up in Appalachia?
    You don't believe life expectancy is down in Appalachia?
    You don't believe there is poverty in Appalachia?
    You don't believe Appalachia covers 13 Red States?
    You don't believe the majority in Appalachia voted for Trump?

    Which is it? One of these, more of these or all of these?

    I don't live there, so..........

    Don't care.
    Don't care.
    Don't care.
    Don't care.
    Don't care.
    Don't care.

    In fact, I haven't thought about that place in years.

    The question is, why do you give a fuck ?

    Answer: because you need to post all the butthurt you can given you are about to lose a seat on the SCOTUS to your mortal enemies.

    Show us your analysis.

    Please. You brought it up...show us.

    Show us you know anything about finance.
    Show us you know anything about poverty and it's causes.
    Show us you know anything about science or math.

    All you do is post bullshit and you can't stand behind it all.

    Add to this that the opiode crisis is extreme in red states and Appalachia. These people consistently vote against their own best interests. Republicans yell 'big city libruls' and these people have a Pavlovian response, as in their minds Democrats don't care about them. Yet the idiots they do vote for never help them. Ever. And they never learn.

    Republicans rely on mass ignorance as their voting base.
