A Republican Governor Defends the Poor and the WPA
(John Kasich, image courtesy of Wikipedia.)
In a reversal of expectations, Republican Governor John Kasich (Ohio) recently said: "I’m concerned about the fact there seems to be a war on the poor. That if you’re poor, somehow you’re shiftless and lazy. You know what? The very people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they worked at the W.P.A.”
Between President Obama's proposed cuts to Social Security, and Governor Kasich's defense of the poor & the WPA, one has to wonder if we've all been transported into an episode of the Twilight Zone.
