Emboldened by his victory in the passage of the biggest U.S. tax overhaul in decades, President Donald Trump now wants to rein in social welfare programs even though some Republicans are wary of tackling the volatile issue in a congressional election year.

Yep tread lightly trump.

Quote

Republicans may need to tread carefully in seeking to reduce government aid programs that benefit some of Trump's core supporters in poor, rural regions of the country.

Contrary to popular belief amongst your supporters there are  more whites on welfare than blacks and guess what those whites voted for you. The trouble is those whites were too stupid to know they were voting against themselves. They thought you were only going to try and erase the legacy of the black President. Imagine their surprise.

The biggest welfare recipients are huge corporations. The working poor already pay the highest in taxes. They are the most unrepresented peoples in America.

Too bad for them that they voted (or failed to) for giving the rich their boots.

That's because there's way more whites

When u adjust for population differences blacks are way out front

https://census.gov/newsroom/press-releases/2015/cb15-97.html

  • The black population: At 41.6 percent, blacks were more likely to participate in government assistance programs in an average month.

                o   The black participation rate was followed by Hispanics at 36.4 percent, Asians or Pacific
                     Islanders at 17.8 percent, and non-Hispanic whites at 13.2 percent.

The only numbers I am concerned about is that more WHITES are on welfare.  If there are 20 whites on welfare and only 5 blacks on welfare would we save more money getting 20 whites off of welfare or 5 blacks?

Do the math. I know it will take you a little bit of time so I will check back on Friday.

Of course you can subsidize people into prosperity.  Subsidization into prosperity has been the means of creating a middle class in America for centuries, from the Homestead Acts to the creation of state colleges and the GI Bill and the FHA and Social Security.  The list goes on.

Yes, I agree with this. The white voters are very stupid. The dems should run on that and calling Trump crazy and stupid. They were discussing this on MSM. It sounds like a solid platform.

The Dems are smart enough to know that certain white voters are too stupid to understand how stupid they are so the strategy would be to manipulate those fools. They are allowing trump to show them how much of a mistake they made. They are still a little slow but some are seeing the light. Some , the dumbest of them all, will never get it.

Never say never. Perhaps AA voters can show them who to vote  for. That has worked in the city, they could branch out and help the county white people.

Trump's stupid enough to attempt it, but Ryan and McConnell, although they desperately want it to end, are probably not.

Typical GOP hypocrisy, their motto seems to be "what is good for the goose is never good for the gander".
