Can someone please explain to me how these rich politicians can talk about helping and knowing the plights of the poor when most of them have never had less than $20 million in their entire lives. I'm talking to John Kerry and George W. Bush. Even the ones who were born poor, Bill Clinton and John Edwards, have been rich so long they can't even possibly remember what it's like to struggle to make ends meet. I live in a mobile home park. I'm not poor poor, but I am in the lower class tax bracket. I don't need for anything, I'm able to get everything that I need to live on but there's millions out there that are unable to. These "leaders" set up there in the multi-million dollar homes and try to figure out how they can help us. How they can make life better for us poor folk. "Let's reform welfare." "Let's raise minimum wage by a quarter and hour." No, you know how you can help us? Quit wasting our goddamned money on stupid shit and spend it on giving us a better education. We have one of the worst educational systems on Earth. We're supposed to be this great and powerful nation, but our teachers are under paid and schools in this country are abysmal. They waste our money on the most asinine things like $9,000,000 for various improvements to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, $1,000,000 for the WesStart Vehicular Flywheel Project(what ever that is), $18,500,000 added by the House for the International Fund for Ireland (IFI) in support of the Anglo-Irish Accord and $15,000,000 added by the House for dairy development programs overseas under the U.S. Agency for International Development just to name .000001% of the waste. That right there is $43,500,000 wasted that could have went to something worthwhile, like schools or hospitals. That's how they can help us po' folk,
