In this holiday season, let’s suppose what might strike some as a miracle, that our Democratic president and a Republican Congress will soon join forces to do something wondrously humane. Let’s suppose they agree to do what actually works to help shove poverty off the American map.
Rep. Paul Ryan recently said the wrong kind of welfare can breed dependency, and liberals are beating up on him but good. They are saying that he is once again showing how conservatives do not care about the poor when in fact liberals are the ones who continuously assault them. They repeatedly practice cruelty in their politics, as many so obviously did with Aid to Families with Dependent Children.
