Elandriel: Christie has promised to stump for this guy, but that will harm his overall chances in re: Presidency. He will be publicly attaching his name to the kind of stupidity and nonsense that so defines the current GOP.Down with poor people, down with clean air/water regulations, bootstrap yourself into prosperity in today's economic reality as a single parent.That certainly can't come back to harm someone who wants to appeal to 51% of the electorate.
Weaver95: I wonder if this guy is pro life?
RexTalionis: He says that he endorses Lonegan and that he will stump for him, but really, he doesn't like the guy at all and he's only saying it for party unity reasons. Lonegan was his Republican rival for the Governorship when he ran in 2008.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: Stupid government regulations shut down the jobs-for-women-creating Triangle Shirtwaist Company!
FlashHarry: Asked how he would help single mothers balance the demands of family and work, Lonegan advocated for "cutting the size of government across the board, freeing up businesses and cutting regulation."serious question: are these people robots?
Hack Patooey: Which will help single mothers, how, exactly?
Hack Patooey: He specifically proposed sunsetting regulations for the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, so that lawmakers could review their impact.Which will help single mothers, how, exactly?
nmrsnr: What are the odds that this guy's mother used whatever government assistance was available to her while raising him?
CPennypacker: Cuz only unemployed people get food stamps
SecretAgentWoman: Ok...let's say mom does get a job. Who's watching the kids? And who's paying for that child care?Because as a newly divorced impoverished single mom back in the day, CHILD CARE was my biggest hurdle. It took me 10+ years to work off the system simply because I had no where safe I could put my kids while trying to work or go to school, let alone both. That only resolved itself when they got old enough to stay home alone.
THX 1138: FTFA: "We never had to have SNAP, when I was a kid," Lonegan said...And during that time when your mother was providing for you by working, how did her take-home pay compare to that of someone doing the same job today? How did her pay compare to that of the president of her company, and how would those two positions measure up today? For that matter, how much buying power did minimum wage at that time provide when compared to minimum wage today?I trust he'll be honest in comparing apples to apples, right?
Urbn: Conservatives' burning hatred for the people who already have no power in our society and limited ways to help themselves out of poverty is both stunning and confusing. Guaranteed these Dickensian GOPers couldn't last one week without resorting to crime or uncontrollable crying if they had to switch places with one of these poors that they hate so much. Hell, even though they're living lives of privilege now, these GOPers whine non farking stop about how oppressed they are.
Lenny_da_Hog: What GOP voters really want to hear:LET'S BEAT THE SHIAT OUT OF THEM! Goddamned sluts! Let's punch them in the face and pour acid on Welfare spawn! PUNISH! PUNISH! PUNISH! KILL KILL KILL! BONK-BONK ON THE HEAD!
badhatharry: Conservatives don't hate poor people.
Vodka Zombie: CPennypacker: Cuz only unemployed people get food stampsThat's the thing that drives me the most insane about all of this. The assumption that only unemployed people get food stamps is so full of shiat it's sickening.
factoryconnection: It is clear to me that, like the Voting Rights Act and widespread vaccine use, we as Americans have forgotten why things were put in place so many years ago. Yeah, yeah... what have EPA or OSHA regulations done for me LATELY?We actually tried to do society without those things, and we got smogged-in cities, Love Canal, a great lake set ablaze, superfund sites, and the like. We know what will happen already, because it all did happen before.
