    Default Ryan, GOP: Screw the Poor


    "The poor have too much money!"

    Link

    House Republican barking Dogs advanced a measure Monday that shifts automatic defense spending
    cuts the parties agreed to last August as part of a bipartisan debt-limit deal to domestic programs aimed
    at mitigating poverty and working-class struggles.

    In clearing the legislation, the Budget Committee put it on a glide path to passing the full House — but that’s
    when it falls into limbo. Senate Democratic leadership had a concise message for their GOP colleagues: Dream on.

    Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), a member of the Budget and Appropriations committees, sharply rebuked
    Republican assholes for refusing to budge on their anti-tax rigidity.

    “I understand why House Republicans would want us to forget about last August, but the fact is they
    brought us to the brink and then they agreed to a bipartisan deal to get us out of it,” Murray told TPM.
    “Today Republicans continue their mad dash away from that deal in order to protect the wealthy from
    paying a penny more. The reality is that the only way to avoid sequestration [deep automatic cuts to
    defense and domestic spending] is to work with us on a balanced and fair approach that protects
    middle-class families. Until Republicans realize that, they will only be negotiating with themselves.”

    If only Democrats could convince the poor to vote.

    Unless it is a contract with a union.

    Dems think of only the poor, the other 80 percent are running shit and need more attention.

    First, we need to grieve that in our world there even needs to be a journey toward women’s living as the equal beings they already are.

    I agree we need to cut military spending. But why are you (and most liberals in general) opposed to missile defense?
