    What segment of the population do Republicans hate and demonize the most?

    While there are a number of contenders, I think one answer is - unemployed single mothers.  

    A constructive way to advance this segment of society would be to build a network of government funded and subsidized  daycare centers where half the moms work and receive a completely decent livable wage and the other half of mothers would be freed up to seek other employment, go back to school or whatever. We would create oceans of productive, taxpaying citizens by deploying our bucks where and how they would do the most good.

    And of course the same with healthcare, nursing homes, etc. Employ Americans in productive work that advances the health and welfare of other Americans. But instead of deploying our dollars where they could be used to improve the lot of every single citizen/taxpayer, we will instead talk about tax cuts for the corporations and the wealthy and subsidize giant profit-making industries so that they may make more profit (which they keep)
