Poor people may be of low cognitive ability!
They have been rehashing the Clinton era Welfare to Work program. During Clinton's years many people moved from work to Welfare under his mandate(no pun intended.) It was a really good program that Clinton instituted, there I said it, so shoot me. In any case there were some who were not successful at making the leap to work. There were 2 "experts" discussing the situation on The News Hour on Tuesday. One of the experts, somewhat of a Conservative, felt that more effort should be made to help these people make a transition to work. He felt that everyone should work. Of course Liberals do not agree and seem to be very happy with a lot of people on Welfare. Why is this? It's because it gives Liberals jobs, often high paying ones. It also gives Liberals a chance to engage in their very favorite past times, feeling sorry for people and wallowing in guilt and being rescuers. Not to mention blaming Republicans for the chronic poverty of some Americans, which is always a lot of fun for Libs. So in order to defend her pets and keep her subjects, well, subject to the Liberal Welfare system and social workers in general, the woman had to make a not very Liberal admission. She had to admit that many of the people that were unable to find and keep employment and make the transition to work, had tested below normal in cognitive ability. In other words, many poor people are not very bright! Well, that about clears things up for me, how about you?
