(Washington) - Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, embarrassed by the number of poor people in the U.S., and wanting their vote, today pledged that, if elected, she will give every poor person in America $50,000 a year for the rest of their lives.
When asked how the government would pay for the 50K a year handout she responded, "As the government we never worry about paying for anything, we just spend money like a drunken sailor. Plus, it's about time the poor actually got something for being Democrats all these years."
When asked if the 50K a year handout would also be given to illegal immigrants, Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein (D-California) replied, "Oh my, yes. This is America."
Senator John Edwards (D- North Carolina) stated, "Giving the poor 50K a year will eliminate poverty in America. Plus, then we'll be able to tax them to death. It's the democratic thing to do."
This is the Democrat's second plan to solve the poverty problem in America. The first plan was to simply deport the poor.
