Kasich: Neither party ‘cares
about helping poor people’

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/27/2017 9:19:07 AM

Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out against the Senate Republican health care bill Sunday, saying both Republicans and Democrats need to do a better job at helping poor people. “Both parties ought to be worried about poor people, because I don’t think either party particularly cares about helping poor people,” Mr. Kasich, who lost the Republican Party’s presidential nomination to President Trump last year, told CNN’s Dana Bash. “You look at the rates of poverty, the problems in this country,” he continued. “We have not designed a system to get people work. Everything we’re talking about now — getting people

What an insufferable jerk he is. He just never quits with his ridiculous, outrageous commentary. Right John, the Republicans don´t care about the poor and that´s why the current bill increases Medicaid through 2020. Link below. He should at least be informed before blowing off his mouth. He used to be reasonable when he had his own show on FNC years ago. I don´t know what happened to him because he is now nothing but an obnoxious hack.

We just read about how Ohio is in panic over the potential reduction in Medicaid because its previous manufacturing industries have tanked, taking jobs with them, and most of the jobs that remain are in what has been a growing medical sector. Apparently due to Medicaid?

Kasich should have minded his own store.

John, like most all politicians, know nothing about our constitution. Tell me John, just where in our constitution do you find that government should take care of the poor?

That is what individuals and our Christian churches are supposed to do, but they are to busy getting rich by not teaching the doctrine of God our Father.

Hey John, define ´Poor People´ and do it exactly!

Are we talking about people who are ´really poor´ or those that fake it, live in a nice house, have multiple wide screen TV´s, spend their welfare checks on booze and generally are takers NOT producers?

Democratic government works on the premise that the goal is to serve the best overall interests of the majority. Hyperfocus on the interests of minorities and the poor, while they should not be ignored, is the tail wagging the dog.

Note to the "poor": this country is not about you - it is about us. Fall in line and get to work.

Kasich, even though he is a self-righteous blowhard, does have a small point here. Lyndon Johnson started the ´war on poverty´ pretty much as a scam to draw minorities into the Democrat party by redistributing income and enticing votes by promising ever larger government programs. What he created is a culture of failure in the lives of both minorities and poor whites that continues to this day. The Republicans have done little to change it. Newt Gingrich made the best attempt by forcing Clinton into welfare reforms that were undertaken only as a mid-term election gambit to win over the moderates. Welfare has always been a failure and the war on poverty continues on after 50 years of such failures. The Democrats have succeeded in cowing the conservatives into silence on the subject and chaining the welfare recipients to the plantation. The Repubicans let them.

Our national debt is more than $19 TRILLION most of which went to the poor as entitlements and this fool thinks no body cares about the poor? Maybe we´re trying to help them too much John?

Isn´t that interesting. I´ve spent most of my life hoping the government would forget I exist, let alone hoping it would "help" me. The truth is, how can you expect the government to care more about you that you care about yourself? How long can that go on? When government had the chance to teach them to be self-sufficient, they failed miserably, and continue to do so, why would you believe they are going to help later? What he says is true, neither party truly ´cares´, but one party is willing to sell the idea that they do.

Neither party cares about poor people and neither does most of the American population. The big fallacy propagated by government is that all they need is a job to become successful. They don´t WANT jobs and they don´t need jobs as long as the government pays them better to not work than most people on the lower end of the wage scale make by working. Poor people are only a concern of the democrat party around election time. They are a concern for John Kasich because he is an obnoxious boor and is lying about it to draw attention.

Look in the mirror when you say that, John.

Just another self-serving politician. He promised to support the Republican Presidential nominee, and immediately backed out.

Looking at all the potential 2016 candidates (both parties), and it became quite obvious the candidate that cared the most was Donald Trump.

Helping those who truly cannot care for themselves is the job of Christian charities. If the government stole less from me, and the welfare state wasn´t so profitable, I would give even more to charities.

The rest, get off your lazy butt and get a job.

Government has no business in providing money and food to people. It enables the lazy, the drunks, the druggies.

Poor receive full health care through medicaid, which includes transportation to and from medical appointments, cash allowance, food stamps, special food stamp
allocation for woemn, infants and children(WIC) supplemental security income (disability) for children who misbehave in school, and I don´t think there is an offset on baby momma´s welfare allowance, free housing under section 8, where in some cases, the recipient sells sleeping space on the floor of the apartment, making tidy sums on a free benefit (Judge Judy has done such cases)
food banks run by governments, free turkeys at thanksgiving and christmas, free school supplies bookbags, free haircuts, free cell phones, which are treated as trading items, an earned income tax credit that is terribly abused.

Kasich was one of the governors who over extended medicaid & he wants everyone else to pay for his bad judgement. The feds funded the states for a period of time then it´s up to states to continue their program. Is it time for the Ohio taxpayers to start footing Kasich´s bill? Kasich, if you want to help the poor give them a job. Maybe his friends the Koch brothers can help him.

The best thing the government can do for poor people is to GET OUT OF THE WAY so they can help themselves. The only thing the government EVER can offer is the bottom of the barrel. It´s not financially possible to do more. The only people who can afford to take of others are those who are taking care of themselves. Republicans who have lost track of this simple reality are betraying the Country.

Dudley Do Right is certainly pious.

Who is at the food bank ? Mostly the elderly living in poverty, some immigrants who heard there was free stuff, the homeless who may be felons who can´t find a job. Some of these people are just beaten down and can´t get help to get back on their feet.

Key lawmakers are threatening to cancel the authorization of sensitive U.S. spy operations until congressional leaders investigate efforts by former top Obama administration officials to leak highly classified national security information in what many believe was a targeted campaign to undermine the Trump administration, according to senior congressional sources familiar with the situation. Key Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee are pressuring Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R., Va.) to investigate former senior Obama administration officials believed to be responsible for these anti-Trump leaks, including former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and National Security Council official Ben

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

Democratic senators reintroduced legislation Wednesday to fight global warming by taxing carbon dioxide emissions, in the hopes that some climate-fearing Republicans will offer support. Democratic Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Brian Schatz of Hawaii announced new carbon tax legislation at an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) event as part of a broader effort to get conservatives on board with taxing emissions. Most Republicans oppose carbon taxes, but a few have joined the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus to find “economically-viable options” to global warming. To most Republicans, the Whitehouse-Schatz bill is a $2 trillion tax and wealth redistribution scheme. Climate Caucu

Senators voted 55-45 against the measure in a procedural vote Wednesday, which likely signals that a full, clean repeal that conservatives are pushing for could not pass the legislative body.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.
