Does she also know that far too many middle class families are struggling like you would never think ? Some are eating beans and rice during the week because we can’t keep up and we get no kickback from the government and or not “qualified” for any program because we can’t produce the right papers…..

Democrats are here to help the middle class, while Republicans only look out for the top 1%, also known as the wealthy.

If the middle class is struggling, how much more so are those who are less privileged than us. Let us also remember to be thankful for what we have and to donate money to organizations that help those less fortunate.

Democrats made it more difficult to get out of the poorhouse.

Make “too much” money on paper and forget getting any help.

They like having poor constituents.

Wrong, take your politics elsewhere

Try some truth instead- they are taxing the life out of the working class. But then, you wouldn’t know that.

Help the middle class?

There’s your ignorance on full display.. With what money? The government doesn’t have it’s own money, only that which it gets from taxpayers who work. Soon that unending source of free money will disappear as the middle class is slowly becoming impoverished. This myth that they are helping the middle class is fooling no one while they take their money and give it as bribes to those who they encourage to be dependent on govt so they can get the votes they so desperately need. They destroyed our economy and require people to dig into their savings to buy food… Read more »

Republicans have been saying for generations that soon the middle class will disappear as usual fear mongering.

Democrats are here to tax the middle class out of existence. As one who makes slightly over $40,000 for a family of 3 receives nothing from the government. And $10,000 goes to taxes, $20,000 goes to rent. Then you are left with $10,000 to pay for medical bills and food
Go figure!!!

good news!

The good news is that you can qualify for food stamps if you make up to 200 percent of federal poverty level (74,380 for a family of six) if you also pay for childcare.

Summers coming up! Are you paying for camp? That counts as childcare 🙂

It’s amazing how so many Crown Heights Jews benefit from amazing programs like these, and yet they vote Republican – the very party who wants to strip our country of these programs.

What causes orthodox Jews to vote against their own interests?

Liberalism and progressivism is Judaism.

Republicans want accountability and responsibility.

Democrats want anarchy with a free for all where money just lands everywhere with no accountability.

It is possible to have help but in a responsible way making sure there is no fraud.

I’m thrilled that in a political environment where grifters get well fed the state is willing to part with some of the shavings to the benefit the truly needy. The Rebbe did in fact support foodstamps. NYC can afford foodstamps. What NYC cannot afford is Democrats. Between 2019 and 2020, NYC lost 19 billion in GDP due to out migrations. Cities highest earners (the ones who pay the taxes) are leaving in droves between Democrats are making NYC and the boroughs unlivable. NYC under Rudy (Bloomberg was smart enough not to ruin it) was the safest big city in the… Read more »

The rich pay their fair share. The Government wastes everything. The Rebbe supported foodstamps. The rest is on you.

Foodstamps should be temporary in most cases and often is for Jews because the recipients get jobs and move on. For those who truly need them, then yeah everyone in a rich country should have food.

But Democrats are destroying NYC and the rich and many other tax payers are leaving. The golden goose is being destroyed.

In addition to taxing the middle class dry, Democrats are actively loosening our morals.

A friend of mine went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens Sunday and told me that public restrooms are now “gender-neutral.” She saw a man exiting the former women’s restroom.

Families beware. Do not patronize these places. I used to enjoy going to the BBG on a pleasant spring-summer day. Not anymore.

The recession isn’t due to COVID. It’s because the Democratic Party owned the presidency and both houses of Congress and continued giving out free money in 2021 like a broken slot machine, even though most businesses had already recovered. They also started economic tightening too late. COVID has nothing to do with the recession. The recession is due to the sheer greed of the Democratic Party who seem to not understand economics at all, and instead, “pay” the poor class to vote for them by taxing the middle class. The only people who get a free ride are people who… Read more »

Do you think people enjoy being on food stamps? Do you think they enjoy needing to ask for help to feed their kids?

This is a struggle for them. Show some empathy and some derech eretz.

They aren’t getting a free ride, they’re getting the help they very much need and deserve.
