Our President has vetoed the SCHIP bill and many GOP lawmakers agree with W.
What a pathetically sad and embarrassing day for all of America. What kind of people have we become?
It is obvious to me that the GOP mantra du jour is "save the fetus, hate the born child" especially the child who is born into an economically disadvantaged or struggling family. Only a bunch of calloused, hypocritical, mean spirited and loathsome lawmakers would have voted against this bill.
Let's not forget whom these cruel monsters are when it is time to go to the voting polls. If they hate poor children, they also hate health care services for impoverished senior citizens, reduced interest college loans for middle and working class families, increased veteran's benefits and any program, for that matter, that would throw a life line to the working poor of this "rich" nation. No, these hypocrites instead support big oil, insurance, pharma and they fully embrace the military/industrial complex, i.e. Halliburton, Black Water, et al.
Shame. Shame. Shame.
Shame on them and shame on us if we fail to exercise our right to vote. We must systematically fire the pitiful and spineless enablers of the worst President in U.S. history. These poor excuses for humans, much less lawmakers, do not deserve to represent us.
Anyone with a half brain knows the GOP stole Florida in 2000, thanks to the Supreme Court and its Daddy Bush appointees. Likewise happened once again in Ohio in 2004, compliments of huge contributions from Diebold and other GOP profiteers. Add to the mix Ohio’s Ken Blackwell’s voter suppression schemes, and voila! Rove’s lust for a permanent Republican majority became a reality.
We the people showed meager support for the Worst’s alternatives in 2000 and 2004. Had we the voters showed more support for the party of the people, the powerful combination of the high court, big money and corrupted political hacks could have never in a day gotten away with a double coup d’etat.
We the people let it happen.
We “got it” and stepped up in 2006. But that was not near enough to stop the party of the war mongering profiteers who have shown their unveiled contempt for our nation’s under privileged children as well as their unconscionable lack of commitment to our troops who must serve inexcusably long tours of duty.
Are you ready to fight back?
