    Republican Study Committee Recommends Cutting Welfare Program That Already Expired


    "Republicans claim to be serious about reducing the deficit but yet they roll out a proposal to eliminate a program that no longer exists," said Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) in a statement. "What's next -- claiming savings for cutting New Deal work programs that were terminated over 70 years ago?

    "The real question is when are Republicans going to abandon this sort of hollow rhetoric and get serious about the problems facing this country?"



    :lol: :lol: That was facking funny.

    You link to an article that does not link to the study. You cannot expect to debate a "hollow" premise.

    Post the study otherwise all you have done is shown your willingness to believe simple political propaganda intended to fool the fools.

    So.....does this mean the great GOP "think tank" will have to find an additional $2.5 BILLION to cut, or are they simply hoping Americans don't notice or won't hold them accountable?

    This quote is from the original Huffpo piece about the WTW program. Regardless of what the Repubs said I did find this little missive interesting...

    Jaquayla Burton's job will end this week unless the Senate does an about-face and decides to preserve a welfare-to-work program that created more than 240,000 jobs as part of the stimulus bill.

    "I wish they would because on Friday I'll have to sign up for unemployment. I don't feel good about that," said Burton, 20, in an interview with HuffPost. "It's hard because I have two kids to take care of. I've been working here nine months and it's kind of stable at home, and then on Friday I'll be unemployed."

    Burton is one of six moms doing community outreach work for for the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition whose subsidized jobs will disappear on Sept. 30, said campaign co-director Karl Kramer. "We do community outreach to educate people about what their rights are under San Francisco's wage and benefit laws."



    So in other words the Democrats favoured getting people off of welfare by giving them welfare by another name. Kind of like how GM "paid" it's loan back by using bailout money to do it.

    Interesting how the liberal mind works.

    Yeah, because the GOP claiming $2.5 BILLION dollars in savings on a program that has already expired makes COMPLETE sense. Interesting how the Republican mind works....
