If it needs repair, I'll fix it," the Republican front-runner said Wednesday on CNN, following his victory in the Florida primary. "I'm not concerned about the very rich, they're doing just fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of the America, the 90 percent, 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling."

    I consider myself to be a liberal and yet I found myself doing a massive facepalm at the way the media handled this "story."

    Also, wrong forum?

    This. I could care less about the lazy happy to be on welfare pop ATM. No I'm not heartless either. I have 2 members of my family that drain taxes. Giving them more is really not going to help. Creating jobs that pay over 14$ an hr is much more impotent.

    I vote for Party not the candidate.

    Peace through strength, not strength through Peace
    It's up to the individual, not society

    Etc.

    Little, white haired millionaire men run Washington.
