The bill is RACIST. ("income-disadvantaged households of Hispanic origin")

Hispanic origin??? Why did they have to bring race into helping the poor? Why not help the poor regardless of race?

Why can't the bill just be for the income disadvantaged? Or even better, there are plenty of jobs...

Why doesn't Congress pass a resolution condemning the name La Raza? You do know what that means and their motto? If there were an organization with the same goal for white people...

The Bill is as good as dead according to my Rep's office. Unless it gets tagged to some other legislation.

Damn. Where is the NRA's check? They are a HUGE lobby with the Second Amendment to the friggen Bill of Rights to back us and, at best, we get to keep what we have bought with our own dime.

If the NRA was half as effective as race/religion lobbies, we'd all be given a belt-fed M2 .50BMG and M4 with M203 attached and ammo in quantity for both.
