Want more proof that Republicans don’t give a damn about you unless your stock portfolio has more chapters than the King James Bible? The deficit is projected to shrink even more rapidly than originally proposed, yet Republicans want to restrict food assistance benefits even more.
Because clearly, cutting $20 billion from monies set aside to help feed people and keep them alive is so vital to reducing our $642 billion deficit that we should just say “the hell with those po’folks…we can lower the deficit by a whole 3% if we just let some of ‘em starve.”
It’s no secret to anyone paying attention that Republican policies hit poor Americans the hardest. Their “small government” mantra (concerning anything that doesn’t have to do with women’s bodies, adults marrying who they choose, and Christian propaganda) takes away social programs sorely needed by our nation’s economically disadvantaged. Southern white Republicans have let Jesus cloud their better judgement, voting Republican out of a sense of misguided morality and ignoring how much harder their lives are under Republican leadership.
Every time I read something about Mark Sanford I think, “Wow, this guy is really off his rocker. He’s completely hit rock bottom.” But then the next week, there he is, one-upping himself. I guess he’s nothing if not consistent(ly insane).
In case you missed it, last week America saw a bombing and an explosion at a factory. Mark Sanford doesn’t have time for that. He would like you to know how bad his week was, personally.
And I am completely disgusted. All of Obama’s gun reforms were watered down and bandied about and altered for gun-supporters for so long, I already knew this would fall into the same two-party pattern we’ve become accustomed to.
Democrats propose something. Republicans hate it. Democrats compromise. Republicans do not. Democrats compromise further. Republicans do not. Democrats give up. Everybody goes home to sit on their piles of money.
I for one am about tired of documenting his foolywangery and overall inability to run his life, but I just want to know what goes on in that man’s head.
Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford must appear in court two days after running for a vacant congressional seat to answer a complaint that he trespassed at his ex-wife’s home, according to court documents acquired by The Associated Press on Tuesday.
