Melissa Harris-Perry went on a long tirade during her show yesterday where she addressed her opinion on being poor in America.
Melissa’s passion stemmed from a segment that she felt was the demonization of welfare recipients that were “undeserving” of help.
She had guest Monica Mehta on the show whom she clashed very quickly with when Monica stated that welfare payments shouldn’t be “limitless”.
"The limits currently ... established under a Democratic president are appalling."
"I just feel like, from the bottom, you have to be able to say, 'I deserve the ability for class mobility.'"
Nancy Giles, another guest on the show cut in saying class mobility “is funded by public education, by low-cost health care.”
Monica then cut in to say, “…which is enabled by taking risks.”
