I think healthcare falls under "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness".

Re: “Lovely Warren's next challenge: uniting the Monroe Democratic Party

Johnny, society is part of the poverty problem and needs to be part of the solution. We all need to work to make sure people know how to finish their educations as adults and that includes incarcerated people. We need to facilitate a connection between jobs and the people who desperately need them.

There are so many strikes against some people. Having to indicate you've been convicted of a crime on a job application after doing your time doesn't make things easy. The resistance to allowing people to finish high school or start college while in prison means society if pretty much sentencing people to a life on public assistance.

Maybe most important, if this area is going to talk about resolving the issue of poverty, poverty needs to be a consideration in every new project and development in the area. We freely give away corporate welfare without much thought, but when it comes to poverty, there is so much talk about personal responsibility.

I haven't walked miles in the shoes of poverty so I am not going to make an assessment that personal responsibility is what is needed. It is sad that while some people are afforded every advantage possible, some find every disadvantage in their way and unfortunately personal responsibility doesn't change that.

Forget about divisions in political parties and focus on poverty. Fixing poverty may very well fix everything else.

Re: “Debate gave closer look at personalities

Thank you News 8...it was fascinating. what I learned: 1. Lovely is a great Mayor, if she says so herself...and she did. 2. When accused of campaign finance illegalities, Lovely says campaign finance issues are not important. 3. Lovely is a hypocrite. She called out her Democratic primary challengers for challenging her when she did the same thing to Tom Richards. 4. Lovely's using some plays from the Trump playbook...say something enough and expect people to believe it...about crime and poverty.
