Im black and grew up middle class. My father was a civil right lawyer in the 70s then a small town country lawyer. My mother was a telephone operator. Their parents were share croppers. Im a clinician and all my brothers and sisters graduated from college and graduate school. I work in a clinic with poor persons daily. I didnt understand why 24 year old girls with 1 child are stuck on the system. I thought surely they have something extra they are facing that I dont.
They dont. Most of these girls are lazy and dont try. They are young, have a GED, 1 baby that the day care raises, and goverment housing, and a ticket to college. They wont go.
Republicans are right about one thing. Aid must stop. The more we give aide the worst the situation gets. The recepients have no reason to try if we enable them so much.
