You seem to have blinders on and/or just anti-Free enterprise and pro the nanny state and less self reliance. It's not mainly removing kids from their families but the fact of low morals and the bigger problem being the single family household. Take a few hours and walk around down town Lewiston and see first hand what is going on. Then go to an ATM machine near such as near a convenient store near the first of the month and watch the cash being removed by the Government issued cards and watch what the cash is spent on inside these "liquor" stores. There is over 40 billion $ in waste and fraud "yearly" in this particular entitlement program "alone". The real problem is "Big Government" with tax,tax,tax, & spend,spend,spend being directed by low information voters, and the rest of the "Progressives" on both sides of the aisle.
are the " Nanny State Progressives "!!
minded individuals...???? With 50 million not paying any income tax and almost the same amount on SNAP TANF and etc....we have an entitlement problem. Many have free phones, large screen t.v.'s Xbox's and not to mention with over 42 Billion in entitlement waste yearly, we all have to have some recovery pain. My priority is my family, not free loaders that take from my family's table. My resources are very scarce. Self reliance should be the mantra of the day.
Did you not read my comment about all the highway funds being used else where from the previous administration ??
And OUR President proposes to transform our country as our Founding Fathers had designed for U.S. Which by the way, the Tea Party has taken on for U.S. to continue the vision. Bring back Constitutional principals of smaller government and Free Enterprise and most of all individual freedoms and self reliance, not a "NANNY" State as you Progressives are so pushing in your concept of "Transforming" what our Founders died for in getting away from King George.
You are forced to buy because you CHOOSE to drive a vehicle. If you do not want to drive you do not have to buy !!
the A.P. is spinning the Constitutional principals with the biases of the Establishment Politicians. Where in the Constitution does it grant power to the government that we must purchase any product....ie ACA. ?? As usual, the A.P. is the " LAP DOG " for the Washington Establishment instead of the rest of our Constitutional principals, not just the 1st Amendment.
example of " LOW IN FORMATION VOTERS " ??
100's of millions that were taken from the highway department in the previous administration to balance the so-call budget. How much of those funds were once approved through the bond process only to be robbed and utilized else where? You guys just hate small, efficient government !! It seems that most of the media in it's pursuit of the First Amendment, instead of being a watch dog for the rest of our Constitutional principals, seems to be just a " Lap Dog " for big government !! Not to mention all the " LOW INFORMATION VOTERS "!!!!
Have the churches, relatives, neighbors, friends, and community been exhausted??
Or is it just that the Nanny state is the first and last resort ?
going to hell because of all the " Low Information " voters, over regulated bloated government, lack of free markets, 30-40 million illegals, lack of understanding of the Constitution and the principals of our Founders, the many that refuse to push the cart but want that " FREE RIDE " instead of seeking further self reliance, the many children being raised without a two parent family, morals and principals just not that important etc. etc. etc.
