The Art Of Taking Words Out Of Their Context
Yes, the horrible, unfeeling, selfish (racist) Republicans. It's what you would expect from them.
But here is the total quote:
“I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money; I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money.”
Conservative people, of which I count myself one, do not want bad lives for disadvantaged minorities. We just want them to work and struggle the same as we do to make our own way. The act of earning one's living is character building, and good not only for the individual and the family, but for the community as a whole. Taking money from the government, and especially when it is used to abuse drugs, and especially when it involves cheating the system, is self-defeating and detrimental to the community.
Keeping people dependent on government largesse benefits only the politicians who count on the votes of those dependent on federal handouts.
