In a brief speech on the House floor Wednesday, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) hailed the war on poverty, endorsed government welfare programs, and said the “safety net has to be something for all of us.”
‘Maybe the word welfare should be changed to something of, ‘a transitional living fund.’ For that is what it is — for people to be able to live,’ she said….
“A line of Americans possibly looking for work.” No different than the fake picture Lee placed behind her a few years ago to give Americans the appearance that she paying a hospital to a senior citizen while pushing Obamacare.

If Progressives were truly serious about solving poverty, it would have been eliminated by now. Instead they use entitlements to keep people enslaved while they themselves are filching the funding that go into these programs.
Jackson “Chia Pet” Lee does not want to address the problem of government dependency, she merely wants to see it flourish which is why she wants to re-label the “welfare” system to a “’a transitional living fund.”
That which poverty brokers push like drugs has nothing to do with transitioning of any kind. It only ensures that they keep people down while the poverty brokers keep their jobs. Lyndon B. Johnson was no damned different.
Government entitlements, on the government dole, welfare state, government dependency, slavery different labels, the same game. Progressives have even re-written the definition of poverty.
A “transitional living fund” is nothing more than lipstick on a pig.
