Here is a picture of Jesse Jackson marching with N.O.W. (National Organization of Women, a radical feminist group) members against Welfare Reform, along with the results of the reforms they opposed. State Reform took effect around 1992-1994 and the National Bill was passed in 1996. The Republicans swept the house in 1994 promising a Contract with America. People are the same the world over. It is the political structure and governmental interference that make all the difference. Get Government out of peoples lives and they will succeed. To believe people cannot succeed without government help is to subscribe to what President Bush calls, the soft bigotry of low expectations. The reason they arent succeeding is BECAUSE of the government help! For some reason, saying these things and passing bills that help millions of people out of poverty is said by the left to be cruel, hardnosed and racist.
