“This document is a precursor not only of our budget but of our larger project to introduce poverty reforms over the course of this year,” Ryan said. “The president may focus on inequality because he can’t talk about growth. We’re focused on upward mobility, speaking directly to people who have fallen through the cracks.”
Food stamps, low-income housing, and a flurry of other social service programs and tax credits are also targeted in the report. Ryan said Republicans will soon offer specific prescriptions to the problems he outlines. Putting a comprehensive anti-poverty agenda alongside efforts to devise an alternative to the federal health-care law is a GOP priority, he said.
Poverty Reforms is such a nice euphemism for the eugenics of killing the poors or at least kicking them in the junk. Yup, the Zombie-eyed Granny-starver is competing in the 2016 Goat Rodeo.
Famous boy exorcist and noted volcano scholar Bobby Jindal attended the National Governors Association meeting, enjoyed a fine brunch served at the White House, listened to speeches on how bipartisan efforts between the Administration and governors everywhere could benefit We the People, and promptly took a dump in the punch bowl:
Jindal saw the gathered press and knew in his Christian heart that this was a time to grab the spotlight and throw some red meat to the mouthbreathers of his base. Jindal, who has aspirations to compete in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, is not considered a top-tier candidate, so whatever it takes, eh, Bobby?
Bless your heart. I thought you Southern Boys were raised better than that.
Can there be any doubt that the GOP’s Boy Exorcist and noted volcano scholar Bobby “Bubba” Jindal decided to throw his hat in the ring for the office of Preznint? How else does one explain his trip to the Hellmouth known as The Reagan Liberry to to give a speech on Religious Persecution?
Let us begin with a disclaimer: Reagan was not a religious man. His foreign policy was more likely to be influenced by Astrologer to the Stars than the Holy See or any group of god-botherers. Anyway, so there was Jindal at the holiest of holies, the ground zero of Wingnuttia, the vector point of… well, you get it.
The latest survey from Democratic PPP released Wednesday showed the former Arkansas governor surging among Republican voters nationwide in the wake of his head-scratching comment about the female libido.
According to the poll, 16 percent of GOP primary voters said they would prefer to see Huckabee as the party’s presidential nominee in 2016, making him the top Republican in the field. Only a month ago, PPP showed Huckabee polling at 11 percent and trailing both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) among GOP voters.
The Pig People have spoken, and they like the cut of Gomer’s jib, ’cause you know: gotta keep the skirts in their place.
Famous plagiarist, Ayn Rand Fanboi and Hair Club for Men most wanted list designate Sen. Aqua Buddha is probably running for Preznint in the 2016 Goat Rodeo!
At least according to his dad, anyway.
“I think [Rand Paul] probably will [run]. I mean, he’s been on TV hinting that he very well might,” the elder Paul said on “Erin Burnett OutFront.” “I kiddingly say the only advice I give him, he better be very careful. He’s doing well, he might get elected, and that’s a great burden and a major responsibility. But I think he’s doing quite well.”
Boy Exorcist and noted volcano scholar Bobby “Bubba” Jindal has gone from hated to merely loathed:
The outlook for Gov. Bobby Jindal also improved in the poll. His 42 percent approval rating, while still low, represented a nearly four point increase over his April 2013 numbers. It also contradicted numbers released in August by Public Policy Polling that showed the governor’s approval rating down at 28 percent.
There is a vibration in The Force as The New Republic puts a purely speculative essay up about how there is a populist movement that wants Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run against Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Goat Rodeo nomination.
Can we just stop this, please?
Near the end of the piece, the author notes that Sen. Warren signed a letter urging Clinton to run. So,this is just another weird attempt to create a controversy between two strong women where none exists. It damages and discredits not just both of those women, but all women. Would such a breathless article be written if the subjects were both men?
