  • I'm NOT the OP, and the link does work...here's an excerpt:

    "Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration's $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, a USA TODAY analysis of government disclosure and accounting records shows. That money includes aid to repair military bases, improve public housing and help students pay for college."

    Coincidence? No.

  • The link worked fine for me. And I think that Obama understandably had a large percentage of low-income African-American supporters who tend to live in places that NEED more aid to begin with. Areas that are wealthier tend to vote more Republican...but they don't need the aid. So, no, I don't think there's anything suspicious about this - in fact, it's very logical.

  • Of course it's not a coincidence. Obama made it clear he would help the poor mostly black areas when he got in office. You knew the places who had Acorn falsely registering these poor people are owed it. He's been openly praising and protecting the groups who supported him. Just another disgusting fact about Obama.
    Maybe they need it but there are many other places that need it too and the point is, it isn't getting out.

    What... don't you know how to copy and paste? The link worked fine for me.

    "Areas that are wealthier tend to vote more Republican."

    Really? Just because you vote Republican you are rich? Damn... then I'm missing some money somewhere.

  • There are areas of this country that are majority white folks and they are low income and poor and they are conservatives.Get your head out of the sand just because someone is struggling does not mean they should or will jump to scream for the government to hold their hand through life.They strive for better then that and have a better chance of achieveing it because they stand for individualism.
