The American Spectator: An Impoverished Debate

re: Lisa Fabrizio: "...All Americans used to know the way to prosperity for themselves and their families. It was, and is, pretty basic: a two-parent family working as diligently as possible. In his piece, Rector concludes: "In good economic times or bad, the typical poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year: That amounts to 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year -- the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week through the year -- nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty." / This, of course, is a truth that Edwards and friends cannot bear to hear or admit. To placate their diverse voting blocs -- feminists, race-baiters, gays, and socialists -- their aim is to keep the "lower" classes low by demeaning marriage, exalting "single moms", encouraging race and class envy, and subsidizing all of the above under the guise of "helping the poor."..."...
