Enimies of the Poor

13 January 2014 |permalink | email article

Sudden, it’s O.K., even mandatory, for politicians with national ambitions talk about helping the poor. This is easy for Democrats, who can go back to the party of FDR and L.B.J. It’s much more difficult for Republicans having a hard time shaking their reputation for being the party for Robin-Hoodism,  for being the party that takes from the poor and gives to the rich. For now, however, Republicans are in a deep sense enemies of America’s poor. And in deep sense that will remain true no matter how hard the likes of Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio try to convince us otherwise.
