Because if this isn't that, nothing is.
I grew up poor. I know a lot of people who have been or are still in a poverty level.
Quite a few of those people are not lazy, but have made decisions in their lives that have limited their income and yes, most of them are glad to have a handout.
It doesn't offend me because I think there is 1 way to get out of poverty regardless of your path...hard work. Be it through education, employment, lifestyle choices.
I definitely believe in picking yourself up by the boot straps. So no, class warfare doesn't bother me when it's going both ways. No reason the democrats should be the only group allowed to use that card.
Why is it offensive to mention welfare like it's not known that it's a free lunch for the democratic candidates, but it IS if the Repubs point that out? I didn't hear Romney say anything disparaging about those people, only that they're in Obama's pocket.
