More Pie Please
Republicans don't want programs to help the poor. We want programs to help the nation. I don't believe in dividing us up and using class warfare, don't help the rich, help the poor. Take from the rich and give to the poor. We don't have a fixed pie that requires we take from one to give to another. Make the pie larger.
Immigration reform that kicks every single illegal alien out of the country would free up millions of jobs for American citizens who are poor. Why hire a 17 year old Black kid to bus tables and wash cars when a 25 year old Mexican man with a wife and two kids will do the job better for less money? If you send the Mexican home to Mexico, the Black kid will get hired for those jobs; giving him work experience and a route out of poverty. We don't owe Mexico anything. Let them take care of their own people, cut their regulations and let their economy boom.
Cut regulation and permit freedom. I have been a manager or supervisor for 40 years in California. Did you know companies are supposed to train their supervisors every two years in sexual harassment? Why? Why is that even a law? 50 years ago the supervisor pinched a butt, got his face slapped and that was the end of it. We did not need training, lawyers, and huge judgements to stop the problem. Do you think they have these classes in China? Do you think Chinese workers sue for millions of dollars because someone has a photo of their daughter in a cheerleader outfit on their desk; claiming it creates a hostile work environment? They do in America and they win. Why do you think that so many companies leave the nation for other places? They can focus on their core competencies not worrying about some personal problems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
