That reform is still working its wonders, by kicking nearly one million people off of food stamps this year – yes, in 2016. That’s one of Bill’s policies that Hillary touts.

Misrepresentation

August 28, 2014

have lately been deluged with requests for donations from various groups. These groups, various organizations of the Democratic Party and several devoted to specific causes, including gun control, veterans, the environment, immigrants and the similarly oriented, badger me constantly.

Money Talks

March 28, 2012
