This lady wants safety nets. She says that the prevailing majority voters will not fork over the money they owe the poor to provide government-funded safety nets. She yells. She screams. “Fork it over!”
What if she were black? I mean really black, as in African black. What if she were having a tirade in front of the Congressional Black Caucus. “You half-whites are not giving enough foreign aid to Africa. We deserve safety nets. But you will not give it because of our color. Half-whites in America own cars. They ride on air-conditioned, tax-subsidized buses. They live the good life. They are rich. It’s not fair. They owe us safety nets.”
And so it goes, all the way down the income ladder.
