Baal RINO Capitalist
“We need to expand opportunity in this country. And to do that, we need Washington to get its act together.”
“I'd start a pilot program, which I'd call the Opportunity Grant. It would consolidate up to 11 federal programs into one stream of funding to participating states. The idea would be to let states try different ways of providing aid and then to test the results — in short, more flexibility in exchange for more accountability.”
“Participation would be voluntary; no state would have to join. And we would not expand the program until all the evidence was in. The point is, don't just pass a law and hope for the best. If you've got an idea, let's test it and see the results.”
Me: “no state would have to join”. Like Obamacare: exchanges at the state level. Let’s see how Baal can create a program, knowing that when it does, it will be devastating to the nation.
“Here's how the program would work: Each state that wanted to participate would submit a plan to the federal government. That plan would lay out in detail the state's proposed alternative. If everything passed muster, the federal government would give the green light. And the state would get more flexibility to combine things such as food stamps, housing subsidies, child care assistance and cash welfare. This simpler Opportunity Grant would include the same money as current law.”
Me: so let’s distribute the Baal Nanny State to the states. Shall we call them Baal prophets?
Me: I feel like Elijah -- all alone on this forum:
Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him! But the people were completely silent. Then Elijah said to them, “I am the only prophet of the Lord who is left, but Baal has 450 prophets.
1 Kings 18:21,22
I am like Cephas who Jesus renamed Peter.
But somebody on this forum is like Saul who God wants to make a Paul.
