Do you believe it is true that...

the government shouldn't worry about the middle class, we're too busy to notice what they're doing with the stimulus money??

Charlie Rangel believes he needs to have a "formula" to make state governors use the money for non-skilled workers and NOT white male construction workers...which is moving towards taxation w/o representation, then he has the balls to say that the middle class is too busy "WORKING HARD" to notice.

This you tube is not commentary based but based on actual VIDEO of the govt session:

  • The question wasn't asked of the working poor. It was asked of the middles class. If you want to ask one about the working poor.

  • Well that comment he made is kinda rude.... i think more should be put into the middle class... doesnt that make up most america?..isn't that all the actual working citizens??

    yea they are "working to hard to notice" because if they don't their families will starve and not have a home... they don't get handouts and get to lay around all day...

  • the working poor make up a lot of the people too. They are also working hard, but we notice what's going on.

  • The working poor aren't sitting around getting handouts is what I meant to say. Stop generalizing, we also have to work hard.
