    Yes, that word isn't used often enough to describe GOP beliefs.  This one blows my mind. Has he read the stats on how poorly hungry kids do in school?  Probably couldn't be bothered.  Hunger diminishes learning ability, but, then I think the GOP prefers people to be uneducated. Easier to sway with repetitive talking points.

      The Republican party is entirely anti-education except for the ruling elites. They are anti-science, too.

      But how are Democrats any different?  It is the Democrats, not the Republicans, who have led the war on the poor ever since Bill Clinton. The Democrats ended actual welfare and took the first steps against Social Security, targeting the disabled. We not only created a poverty crisis, but brought back extreme poverty -- something that had previously been ended in the US. For years, the media marketed to liberals have responded to our poverty crisis by vigorously waving the Middle Class Only banner.

      My mom was a teacher and she said the free lunch was the only meal some of these kids would get all day.
