    After 40 years of the "war on poverty"??

    Is this supposed to be evidence of success?

    The only war of poverty was in Johnson's mind. Now, I have to admit that he did get more through Congress than any American President except Roosevelt (FDR), but the war on poverty was a bust. The more you entreat the poor the more they desire to suck at the government teat.

    The "war" has been from the Republicans on the "middle class".

    Listen to Republicans plan for health care - "tax credits". Yea, give a tax credit to these poor people and they will use it to buy health insurance - Oh yea, sure they would.

    Why do Republcians hate the "middle class"? The "middle class" is the "real base" of the US.

    How is a healthcare tax credit a war on the middle class?

    Big government is destroying the lower & middle class. Big government only favors government employees & the rich. Under the Obama government expansion the average government employees now get paid 35% more than private sector employees. Also the rich have increased their wealth & bonuses under Obama.

    What is destroying the Middle Class is the enormous tax cuts for the rich and moving jobs overseas to countries who have a public option so companies don't have to pay for health care.

    And thus are a net drain on growth. Government jobs are inelastic, unable to adapt to a changing marketplace, and drag an economy down. That they now pay better than the private sector is a cause of America's decline.

    Nowhere else was this clearer than in Soviet Russia, where all jobs were government jobs.

    Yes, but something else needs to be substituted for the govt jobs.
    But then again is it wrong to be an actual part of your government?
