Rep Allen West “We have a 16% increase in Americans on the poverty roll – 6.4 Million since Obama took office”

By MJ LEE  for Politico

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Monday defended Newt Gingrich for referring to President Barack Obama as the “food stamp president,” disputing critics who have blasted the former speaker’s comments as racially charged.

“There is no race code. It’s a fact. Since President Obama has been in the Oval Office, you ‘ve seen a 41 percent increase in the food stamp recipients in the United States of America,” West said on Fox News. “We have a president that’s making more American victims rather than victors.”

“We also have a 16 percent increase in Americans on the poverty roll — 6.4 million more Americans are on poverty since President Obama took office.”

Gingrich, who has come under fire for labeling Obama the “food stamp president,” once again defended his remarks on Sunday, accusing his critics of being dishonest about the president’s failed policies.

“I think it’s unfortunate that liberal leaders, whatever their ethnic backgrounds, can’t have an honest debate about policies that fail,” the former House speaker said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

As the four GOP hopefuls travel across his state before next week’s primary, Allen said they must focus on appealing to hard-working Americans. “They’ve got to understand that the message has to be about how they’re going to defend hard-working American taxpayers and families,” he said.

Understanding the Democrat and Republican Parties Through Their Own Words

 

Political parties are comprised of individuals.  Within a particular party, the individuals may vary to some degree on how they view particular issues.  Corporately, however, political parties set platforms that generally represent the ideologies of the people that make up that party.  In closely comparing the party platforms of the two major political parties in this nation, one can better determine which party best represents his or her moral, social, and economic convictions and make an informed choice based on that persuasion.

How the Democrat and Republican parties address the social ill of poverty is worth examining. Poverty is a reality in this nation and abroad, and neither political party diminishes that reality nor seeks to intentionally do injustice to the economically disadvantaged.  However, the parties have differing ways in which they approach the poverty issue.  I have compared two years from each party’s platform; years in which they specifically addressed Poverty, Welfare, and Welfare Reform.  There were other years in which these issues had been addressed, but for simplicity, I used just two; 1968 and 1980.   After each year’s bulleted platform summary, I recapped the conclusions of each party in my own words.

These are the parties, in their own words:
