Riiiiiiiiiiiiight, because at 2% of the budget, it's a looming catastrophe to help those who are in need, especially because some abuse the system.
Corporate welfare is what is killing us. And Ms. Clinton is certainly down for that.

...thereby solidifying my vote for Jill Stein. I registered as a Democrat for the first time in more than twenty years. But apparently folks at the DNC would rather conspire to fool me, or blame me, instead of listening to me. Let them have Trump.

Yeah- we need to jail someone who tries to "make their own driveway" when actually, the worst looking properties are owned by out of town investors who suffer nothing for their part in the city's blight.
Silly. Maybe the city could do something to help struggling citizens trying to make it here rather than busting balls all the time. Who is going to jail for the lack of upkeep of the pavement on Wick Avenue by the University for the last five years ? Puzzling how YSU can recruit out of town students, when a simple campus visit reveals that the infrastructure immediately surrounding campus is in shambles. Who do we jail or fine for this ?!

Maybe the heart attack "victim" six blocks away is addicted to sausage ?
Maybe the diabetic is addicted to sugar.
Maybe we are all addicted to what is killing us, one way or another.
Should we not try to revive cigarette smokers, who clearly know that their habit is deadly going in ?
Or maybe we should not provide liver transplants to alcoholics.
Perhaps we are foolish to forgive and to help. Seems Jerry thinks so. Better to judge seems to be his lesson.

Integrity for sale. Should be the motto for this entire election.

We're gonna build a wall at the Mason-Dixon Line and make the Southerners pay for it ! Then, any assault rifle toting redneck can go back to where the 2nd amendment shall be interpreted for only their benefit.Where their right to create terrorism shall not be impugned by actual terrorists themselves.
Bad news for them ? No more gubment entitlements floating their red state ineptitude.

What organization ? Why the NRA of course. The guns were legal to this man thanks to them.

*theoretically and figuratively spoken, of course.
I'm not dying, nor am I a killer. But your aim of destroying the two term Obama has failed. And your holding our government hostage has REAL impact on suffering people who are not your enemy, but are soon to be.

All you partisan clowns would rather blame sick poor people and Obama than the companies that are ALREADY making record profits for some of the worst healthcare in the developed world while they raise our rates and cut our services. You deplore regulation and you blame the disenfranchised. You are manipulated by the promise of one day receiving a big enough crumb and you let that false promise line the pockets of the corporate thieves who rely on your ignorance and arrogance to fleece the American middle class.
The rest of the world laughs at what we pay for what we call healthcare. And you partisan fools are to blame. As I die from poor coverage and doctors who honor the industry rather than their oath, what's to keep me from taking a couple of you Tea Party types with me ?

It has been said that if churches truly practiced what they preached and did what Jesus would do rather than just collecting money for acting like it, they would open their doors and the homeless problem would be solved overnight.
Instead, we are worried about former vets and other societal castoffs invading our entertainment gatherings ?
