Poof! Rand Paul makes the poor disappear

Ever wonder what happens when delusional market fundamentalists grab some of the reins of power?

Well, actually those of us suffering under the current North Carolina General Assembly already know many of the answers to such a question, but here’s another:

You get United States Senators making silly, through-the-looking-glass assertions of the kind normally confined to the fringe “think” tanks.

    Eunice, how does your statment apply to the dramatic increase in poverty levels over the last 10 years, or to the ignorance of Rand Paul’s assertions?

    So, now Ron Paul is responsible for poverty on the US? Just goes to show you there’s more than one way to look at a problem.

    First of all this is about the ridiculous claims made by RAND PAUL, and nobody is blaming him for the increase in the number of people living at or below the poverty level. His statements about those impoverished in this country are completely out of touch with reality. Read, and then listen, maybe you’ll be able to follow the conversation, and not sound like the typical trailer park conservative.
