  1. And what would $400 said at 11:07 am on September 22nd, 2013:

    do Mr. Booker, other than buying you votes?


    How about lowering taxes so that people can have more money to pay for college. Oh, that’s right; poor people DON’T pay any Federal Income taxes, so we gotta give them MORE handouts.

    How about a HAND UP, empowering them to improve themselves by creating a better economy so that parents can earn more money and “float the boat upwards>”

  2. Booker is out of touch said at 10:13 pm on September 22nd, 2013:

    $400 A YEAR??? Cory Booker is terribly out of touch if he even thinks that number sounds helpful.

    Booker is also terribly out of touch with his own community if he thinks all of those murders on the streets of Newark are being committed with assault rifles. Booker should be concerned with addressing the gang crimes perpetrated by, and against, mostly the poor, black Americans that live in Newark and cities like Newark, not addressing civilian rifles built for sport and target shooting.

    Booker can’t really be so out of touch to think that our nation is really sending our kids off to war with a $500 civilian grade semi-automatic AR-15 that he thinks is an “assault rifle” or “military grade”, can he?
