Mr. Thompson had some interesting comments about overtaxed working people. Let's take a look at the real world, Mr. Thompson.
The working people that you talked about can't make it on minimum wage anymore. The average manufacturing employee makes slightly over minimum wage and the majority of factories use temporary labor, which offers no benefits such as health insurance for the employee. You would be surprised how many college grads are working at these types of jobs.
While I agree with you on the problem with unwed mothers somewhat, to blame them for all of it is ludicrous. It takes two to tango. The courts should do a better job of going after deadbeat dads and moms who don't pay child support.
The federal programs that are in place for the working poor are of great benefit. Children of the families that are getting assistance are getting food and medical care that "the rich people who create jobs" don't offer.
