Kasich: Neither party ‘cares
about helping poor people’

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

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.

Not my job to "take care" of poor people. It´s their job to get off their lazy behind, get a job and take care of themselves!!

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.

Universities known for being hotbeds of campus protest and liberal activism are struggling with declining enrollments and budget shortfalls, and higher education analysts say that’s no coincidence. Take Oberlin College. According to a document leaked to The Oberlin Review, the school’s student newspaper, the small liberal arts college famous for social justice hoaxes has had trouble attracting and retaining students, missing this year’s enrollment mark by 80 and racking up a $5 million budget deficit in the process. William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School who runs the Legal Insurrection blog, said the “most obvious culprit” in Oberlin’s

Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good

Facing harsh criticism, a Harvard dean said early Friday morning that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning, a former United States soldier convicted of leaking classified information, to be a visiting fellow at the university. The sudden turnabout by the Harvard Kennedy School came after a day of intense backlash over the university’s announcement on Wednesday that Ms. Manning would become a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics this school year. Douglas W. Elmendorf, the dean of the Harvard Kennedy School, said that while the university encourages a diversity of opinions and does not shy from controversy,

After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had claimed that there was nothing “improper” in an Obama loyalist eavesdropping on members of the opposition party. Every time Obama Inc. was caught eavesdropping on opposition politicians, it presented its spin in a carefully packaged “scoop” to a major media

Meghan McCain, the political scion who turned a stint as a blogger and TV show host into a role as a contributor at Fox News Channel, is leaving the network.

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military. Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military. (Snip) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, are also behind the effort. “Thousands of brave transgender Americans love

Chelsea Manning has been making quite a spectacle of himself out on Twitter, taking Michael Morrell´s and Mike Pompeo´s exit from the school as a welcome new opportunity to call attention to himself. He starts with an emoji-filled cheer at news of Morrell´s resignation from his own Harvard post based on its bad judgment in bringing him into the university to ´mentor´ students, declaring it ´good´ that Morrell has pulled out. Not a thought about how Morrell´s exit might affect Harvard, it´s all about himself and his feelings instead. Note the high emoji count, by the way - an advertisement

CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox
