Bill and Hillary Clinton Passed the Crime Bill three strikes and you are out and took away benefits from families. Lets see how this plays out.
James and Lisa live in AnyBigCity. James is 40 and Lisa is 36. They have come a long way since their youth. They had a rocky start but seem to being doing OK in the 90’s. They have five kids and after five years on cash assistance Lisa has a job where she does not have to receive assistance anymore especially combined with Jame’s income who works at a bread factory. James used to be a drug addict/dealer and has been convicted of two felonies both for possession but has managed to kick the habit of using and selling. They are doing OK they have managed under a government program to buy a small house and their children are doing well in school. One day a coworker who sees that James has made it out of his situation comes up and smacks James in the head for no reason just because his wife is attractive and he seems to have a good life. James turns around and knocks him out cold. James is charged with felony assault convicted and sentenced to life in prison because it’s his third felony.
Lisa is left with five children to raise on her own and has lost the income of James. The children have lost a loving father that tried hard and are in disarray. Meanwhile Lisa in order to make up the income of James goes and applies for public assistance because she can’t pay the mortgage. She is denied. She has gone over the life time limit. They tell her to move into public housing and to try to get section 8 but they really don’t care about her desire to own a home. In the meantime she has five boys and they need their father. They eventually are foreclosed on and end up in a homeless shelter. Lisa has three jobs. She has no time to supervise her children slowly she begins a downward spiral and the children too. Lisa can’t figure out why her husband is in jail for hitting someone who hit him first and feels that all the plans she made through several generations have gone down the drain all because of inhumane policies implemented by Bill and Hillary Clinton. She know’s it’s not because she’s black because many others are of different races are in her situation too.
