Enough with the race-baiting bullshit.
“It is not a dog whistle or code anymore but plain as day. I think the American people get this, and we don’t want to take a 50-year step back in history. That’s what these Republican candidates are doing,” Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) said about Newt Gingrich’s food stamp rhetoric.
“I think frankly that they’re doing it because they want to take us off the fact that there is great income inequality in this country and they’d rather divide poor white people and poor black people and middle income black people and middle income white people instead of focusing on the fact that we need to create jobs in this country and opportunities because far too many people are on food stamps because of the bad policies and the dangerous policies of the Republican Party,” she said.
