Call in to speak with the host
Jeanene Louden, host of Thursday's LUNCH WITH LOUDEN will co-host for Jessica English, whose latest web video just might turn the welfare debate on its head.
"If you don't like welfare and you don't like food stamps, tell Congress to raise the minimum wage... Our taxpayer dollars are subsidizing the profit margins of powerful corporations who can buy influence in Washington enough to write our laws. We need to change that. So the next time a slick, expensively produced advertisement tells you to hate your fellow Americans who are struggling to feed their families, think about this: how much did it cost to create that advertisement? Who paid for it? And why?"
We'll also talk about education, and how it relates to poverty. Our guest will be Rich Hancock, Democratic candidate for the TX state house.
It's good to talk.
