GOP Lawmaker Gets Brutally Torched After Claiming Being Poor Is ‘A Choice’

On Saturday, Republican Arkansas lawmaker Stephen Meeks took to Twitter where he attacked people for being poor, suggesting that the only thing keeping people from becoming “millionaires” is laziness.

Meeks tweeted saying:

“Being poor in America is a personal choice, unless there are mitigating circumstances. A homeless man can go to school, get a job driving a truck making $70k per year and in 20 years become a millionaire. In America you can work hard and change your future – if you chose.”

Of course, it didn’t take long for Twitter users to fire back at Meeks’ ridiculous comments.

Here are some of the best responses:
