Did you read the article?
"Here where cradle-to-grave socialism, the Democrats' fantasy state, is realized..."
"Former President Clinton waltzed through Pine Ridge on a lip-biting tour with Tom Daschle and then-Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Andrew Cuomo in 1999. "You have suffered from neglect, and you know that doesn't work. You have also suffered from the tyranny of patronizing, inadequately funded government programs, and you know that doesn't work," Clinton thundered in a speech promising to create "new markets" for the poor and clean up the squalor in Tom Daschle's South Dakota...."
"But the Democrats' grand housing construction and revitalization scheme for Pine Ridge, which made for nice glossy brochures and promotional videos, fell short...."
"While his destitute constituents on Pine Ridge huddle around their ovens for heat and drink in despair, Tom Daschle says he can do better for America's economy. Have you seen what he has done for South Dakota lately?"
Sounds like the point she's making is exactly the opposite of the nanny-state socialism foisted on the Indians by the likes of Daschle, Clinton, and the Democrats. That what's bad for the Indians would be just as bad for America.
Really? Then why is she criticizing the fact that there are no movie theatres and the like? She is blaming Daschle for being ineffective and for failing to get the conveniences of modern society installed on the reservation.
Yeah, she's criticizing that there's unending welfare but this is just a means to and end. The Indians would do well to be left alone. They are not a prize to be won by republicans and democrats.
