oh yea! more Dear Leader "visions" I mean promises...get out your wallets (working) taxpayers in this country...:smiliehug:

SNIP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will announce five “Promise Zones” this week as part of his effort to focus on income inequality in the lead-up to his State of the Union address.

Promise Zones are areas where the federal government provides tax incentives and grants to help communities tackle poverty. Obama first announced the initiative during last year’s State of the Union speech.

On Thursday, Obama will announce the first Promise Zone locations. They’re in San Antonio, Texas; Philadelphia; Los Angeles; southeastern Kentucky and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.

We did. As we flushed the toilet.

In the 2012 election, Republicans openly accepted that the 47% would never vote for them

After the election, they whined about "free-stuff" and entitlements buying votes. They also vowed that they needed to compete for minority and low income votes

So why didn't Republicans come up with this plan?

Tax incentives and grants to help poor communities bring in JOBS. Not free-stuff but JOBS. Identify impoverished areas and encourage the private sector to move in there and provide JOBS

Why isn't this a Republican plan?

He is desperately searching for something to distract from the Obamacare fiasco. No-brainer really. He's a lame duck already.

Detroit was the biggest Democrat Promise Zone.

They keep doubling down on failure after failure

Dems are the only party who would double down on AA in blackjack

Why do liberals always moan for republicans to fix the problems they themselves have created? :lol:

Let that freaking hell hole rot for all we care where I live. You don't shoot yourself in the foot time after time after time and expect anybody else to suddenly make your stupidity somehow better or less painful.

Screw Detroit. Put more of those elected leaders in prison is a good start. There's your republican idea moron.

If you notice, the 3 cities on the list, San Antonio, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, are all 'sanctuary' cities for illegals.

Coincidence?? ..... :cool:

Very true

Why isn't it a Republican initiative to bring in jobs to poor areas? They bitch about "free stuff" ...why are they bitching about bringing in jobs?

Do the Republicans plan on never having poor and minority Americans vote for them?

The Choctaw Nation is not hurting economically! With their 8 casinos, they're making plenty of money. If he wants to help a tribe, I can think of 5 off the top of my head, who are in more need of assistance...

I do find it interesting that he'd single out one of the largest tribes in Oklahoma though.
