Re Obama: For the past 50 years, Democrats have portrayed themselves as the saviors of the poor. During this time they have created social programs.

So here we are today and the poor are still poor, and there even more of them and the taxpayer is still spending billions of dollars a year on social programs to help them.

Obama has the audacity to stand before Congress and tell them to help the poor or he will and the Democrats call this leadership. I will assume a good leader is one who spend taxpayers money even when the Country is in debt to their eyeballs.
