    They have jobs, so they acquire skills, but it's not enough. Millions of people are the proof of that.

    Lots of jobs out there these days. Record unemployment.

    If they STILL can't get jobs, we have to ask why?

    Could it be drug tests? (I hear this a lot)

    Or racism?

    Or if you will excuse me, could it be obvious bad decisions that we have to pretend are because of external factors?

    Got that backwards.

    Get skills, thats what gets you a job.

    If you mean low skill jobs should teach them more so they can leave you are dreaming.

    If you are so reliant on a low skilled job that you have to rely on others (the taxpayer) YOU are the problem.

    Sometimes it's just that work is... hard. Earning money is a fool's errand to some.

    The "rich' already the majority of federal income tax. How much more of their money do you think you're entitled to?

    And with Reagan we saw the largest economic boom of a generation, then once again with trump. More people paying tax is good. Less people paying more taxes is bad

    In a few cases that might be true.

    However we have a record low unemployment rate, which means people can find jobs.

    The real problem is people gaming the system.

    And illegal immigration isn't exactly helping that.

    Good post. You should discuss this group more.

    Larry Elder has covered the "ticket" out of poverty.

    Its graduating from highschool (or getting your equivalency), working full time (any job), and not having children until one is married.

    The poor aren't poor because the rich are rich.

    Thats just the ole marxist dogma.

    And half of adults aren't paying income taxes.

    Seems like the wealthy pull far more than their fair share.

    His socialism failed to control scofflaws, now he wants to go commie; "Wealth is in the wrong STATE," is what he should have said.

    With a personal net worth reported to be $145,000,000, I suggest this "Limousine-Liberal" de Blasio POS start by giving away his fortune and get an actual, real-life JOB somewhere.... :worker:

    How is it far one part of our society pays the overwhelming amount of taxes while the other is allowed to simply live off the Govt as long as they like??
