Who in American Politics champions the poor and working poor?
I believe, that because of the perception that helping the poor translates to helping Blacks and Hispanics politicians dare not even discuss the poor. Every single Washington decision starts with making the poor and the vulnerable, more poor and more vulnerable. This country has an intrinsic Hatred for those that have fallen on hard times and a Love for the rich. Taxes have been at record lows for 10 years yet where are the jobs that we lowered the taxes to allow them to create. If there is a hell, United States will be a country there one day.

The intrinsic hatred is for control of individuals by big government. The US is actually one of the most charitable places on earth. Redistribution of wealth by force of taxation is not charity.

They ALL talk about helping the poor because they want to look moral, and the reality is NO ONE cares about the poor so get over it and stop looking for a handout.

Democrats in Washington keep the poor warehoused in slums and projects and eke out food stamps to them like animals in a zoo...Republicans prefer teaching people a trade so they can support themselves.

We all, individually, champion the poor. This is something that is not a responsibility of the government.

Democrats "help" them to stay "poor" Republicans encourage them to improve their situations so they won't be "poor" Whether a person chooses to stay poor or improve their situation, is ultimately up to the individual
