Connie Phillips explains why the poor should buy “…cookies, chips, energy drinks, soft drinks, seafood, or steak” with your money. Oh, wait ....
Connie Phillips, wife of Democrat Sherrod Brown (D- Ohio) is outraged that Christians don’t want the poor to use their welfare money to buy “…cookies, chips, energy drinks, soft drinks, seafood, or steak.” She goes on for another 700 words to accuse Christians of “oppressing the poor.”
I read to the end and was waiting for her defense of “the poor” using your tax dollars and mine to buy junk food and luxury items that are now being priced out of the reach of the non-poor who are supporting the poor. The reason never comes. It’s just one of those things that are so obvious to Liberals that no reason is needed.
Obviously the poor should be able to use your money to buy lobster and steak. Obviously cookies, chips, energy drinks and soft drinks are part of the staples that the poor need to live. To deny them the right to use your money to buy them proves that you are a bad Christian and a hypocrite.
Connie's husband, Sherrod Brown, is best known for accusing President Obama of sexism after Obama suggested that Elizabeth Warren didn’t know what she was talking about in opposing the TPP trade deal.
