• The rich and middle class support the poor!! Not any politician I've ever known! Who do you think are paying all those taxes that go to support all the programs for the poor? How would you like for the rich to choose to move their riches somewhere else? True Christians and all other moral individuals who choose to donate to programs for the poor are going above and beyond what is already forced in the form of taxes. No one has to be 'deamonized'. Its not the government's job to support the poor, its the job of their parents or family to teach them how to take care of themselves! And to help them if they are not able. We are blessed in this country to have many programs to help! And we need to acknowledge the ones who really pay for it not give credit to some talking head! We are all commanded to love thy neighbor as thy self! That's true whether they are rich or poor by the way! And if everyone did there would be no poor! But it doesn't happen to be in The Constitution or the Bill of Rights! Its not the job of the government to support each individual from birth to grave! Its the job of humans to help those less fortunate.

  • What are YOU doing to help the poor, axe77? Do you care enough to move more than just your mouth or fingers as the case may be to help someone less fortunate than yourself? Are you willing to do what you preach? Please do tell us what you were motivated to do for the poor before you chose to criticize someone else for not doing it! Maybe in the process others will be inspired to choose to actually help the poor instead of criticizing others and more will actually get done to help them. I suggest supporting your local homeless shelter as a start either with a financial donation, your time and talents or both!

  • Support the poor how? What do they need, in your opinion?
  • A Huffington Post article? That's what you're basing your question on? Do you have anything deeper than that?

      You and The Federalist. Get real.
  • only tirne will tell
  • If i ran as a Democratic US President .. I would not hurt the rich or the poor I would support all people ..I would not raise taxes on rich or the poor ..There would be great healthcare for both the Upperclass and Middleclass
  • You've got this one backwards as well! haha Its the rich who support Trump and Biden! And 'the poor' need a hand UP NOT A HAND OUT!
    • Archie Bunker
      I'm not rich and I support Trump.... just sayin'. But you're right, no one needs a hand out.

      You guys were more than happy to cash your stimulus checks! Two-face much?
  • As a voter in the USA, you can, in fact, vote for whomever you wish. If your vote is cast for a person who is ineligible for office, that person cannot be elected to that office, regardless of how many votes they receive. Furthermore, if a person receives more votes than another person, but that person is not endorsed by the party that controls the votes of that particular state or jurisdiction, the likelihood of your vote actually meaning anything concrete is virtually nothing, as the US president is not chosen based off of popular vote anyway, but rather is decided by the "electors," who are beholden to party politicians.
