    I am wondering did the USA forget this. I over heard a woman say she will quit her job and get pregnant because she could earn more money on welfare. Something is wrong with that.

    You overheard nothing of the kind and you know it.

    Only 7 posts and you tell this idiotic lie? You'll fit right in with the other nutter rw's here.

    Are you aware that LBJ's war on poverty was the carrying out of JFK's policies?

    What’s wrong is believing things you ‘overhear.’

    actually I did hear that and she quit the job the next day. I do not know what happened to her after that. The fact is I would be just as well off if I went to work part time. reason is I would get free food with food stamps, a free cell phone, free insurance in 2014, and still make enough to pay my other bills. Both parties are making this a nation where it does not pay to work.

    Just curious. How do you interpret JFK's statement.

    I heard Elvis was coming back and it's true!!! I've already seen and talked to him. It was so exciting. :)

    Remember what your country is doing for you when you take advantage of tax expenditures.

    Mortage interest deduction? That's a gift from the government to you that costs a lot more than an ObamaPhone™. The bigger your house, the bigger your gift. Sweeeeeeeet!

    Child tax credit? Another gift!

    Every dollar you get to save in taxes through deductions and credits is a dollar that has to come out of someone else's hide.
