A Republican vision for America – “Poor People Do Not Deserve to Have Children”

The Last Of The Millenniums

‘The greatest commonly shared story in this country is economic insecurity. If you think poor people don’t deserve to have children, the problem is not SNAP or the people that rely on it to survive. The problem is you’.

‘I received a phone call today from someone who had seen Demos’ Vice President, Heather McGhee, on MSNBC talking about why people need food stamps. The caller stated, “People who are poor do not deserve to have children. I’ve seen these people with 1,2, 5 children. If you can’t afford to feed them, don’t have them.”

‘It’s easy to dismiss this as the ravings of a lunatic but the truth is that this mentality is all too pervasive’.

‘This kind of mentality is comforting because it doesn’t question the validity of what has come to be the essence of America: if you work hard enough, you can make it’.
