I have to say, I am very surprised she did this video. Not something I would expect. Will she work and push her mom and liberals to change the system? Probably not but Im still glad she did this.

Alexandra Pelosi makes DEMOCRATS LOOK BAD ( New York City Voters ) - YouTube




Notice very few laughs from the audience. Hard to tell why. Is it because they are upset that welfare queens exist or are they upset that this was exposed further?

Since the week before she did the stereotypical toothless "rednecks" down in MS, she thought it fair to do the other side. Democrat leeches sucking on the taxpayer.

I like the guy talking about getting obama cash.

Uhhh.... no

The only chance for either party is for someone like Eisenhower for the Reps or Kennedy for the Dems to be reincarnated

We need to presidents who actually want the country to move forward as my examples did

Not vapid morons who only say things trying to get attention (especially mccains daughter)

I thought everybody knew blue states do a better job at redistributing the wealth.

Conservative states do a poor job at handing out social safety nets.


I've heard many New Yorkers say that some people find it better off just staying home and receiving welfare. It's better than busting your arse in a minimum wage position.

You can't do the same in most red states.

Alexandria Pelosi is a smart person, she points out the clear problem, there are too much entitlements on both sides of the political spectrum... The military, large corporations, the environmentalists, the poor, the average American, etc etc... She asks the questions but the problem is the answers she receives is a bunch of BS excuses... even Maher was making excuses that were complete BS... and the BS stank...

A few weeks ago, on The Five, Bob Beckel admitted that Democrats had made a mistake a few decades ago by passing legislation that has created the enormous welfare state we have today that allows for the abuses we see in Alexandra Pelosi's interviews. I don't know if this kind of entitlement mentality can ever be reversed and it's a problem for everyone who is tired of supporting those who have reached adulthood without a work ethic.

The problem is that since we even created the welfare state, its hard to take it away. Not saying liberals want to, because they know they NEED victims to win elections. They need these people.
If they truly want to make this country better, you can start with a major overhaul of the welfare process. As you can see, able bodied people clearly taking advantage. Everyone knows it exists but sadly, many liberals in politics use it strictly for votes and wont dare try and do the right thing.

You're absolutely correct; it's also downright infuriating.
