want to already know.
Speaking to Republicans in Iowa on Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) said his administration would reform welfare to the point that it would offer no welfare at all.
After suggesting that an expansion of Medicare is really just a plot to make voters more “dependent” on Washington, Santorum added: ”I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them other people’s money.”
One thing he likely overlooked: white Americans account for the largest percentage of welfare payments each month, mostly because they make up the largest sector of the population.
Welfare is defined by the government as benefits funded by tax dollars, meaning that programs like Social Security, food stamps, veterans benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment and corporate bailouts all fall under that term.
What Santorum seemed to focus on, as many conservatives do, is that black people are disproportionately represented in welfare statistics, along with Latinos, as both populations have much higher rates of poverty than whites.
And, again, lets also not forget how much of the wealth that underwites so much of the truly anti-American political subversion was inherited over the generations from a process that was enabled by a system of ‘giving’ that was far more disgusting than any ‘redistribution of wealth’ that ever has or ever could take place via formal taxation.
You know what?
Maybe my fake quote for Lil’ Ricky wasn’t accurate enough.
Perhaps it should have been: “Can I have a white hood for my finger too?”
