THE COLOR OF WELFARE From listening to people like Newt, you'd never know that more whites receive food stamps than blacks. Newt Gingrich: "The African-American community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps."
Funny how Republicans don't seem to single out the rural whites getting "handouts." Gingrich: "You folks need to stop collecting other people's money and get a job!"
Things would certainly be different if they did. Crox News anchor: "There would have been more bombings in Oklahoma City, but Timothy McVeigh stopped to collect his welfare check!" "Ron Paul looks like a scrawny backwoods meth-head!"
"And what's with all the poor hicks owning huge trucks? It's time to get these Dodge Ram-driving welfare kings off the government teat!"
