Budget Cuts
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 • Posted April 18, 2014

Hi Gerry,

Let the hunger games begin. The House GOP just passed Paul Ryan’s Budget last week. They are cutting food stamps of course. They couldn’t care less that a vast majority of food stamp recipients are children. I guess Ryan wants them to work in factories just like they do in China if they want to eat. He also wants to cut Medicare by $129 billion. Ryan wants to go back to the good old days before Medicare when seniors had to decide between food and medicine. He also wants to cut early education programs for less fortunate children. I guess their parents on minimum wage must somehow scrape money to get their kids in Ivy League prep schools if they want to get them out of the poverty cycle. What kind of delusional thinking process does this idiot labor under? Plus he wants to raise the taxes on middle class families who have children. Middle class families are already struggling with so many financial issues. But Ryan is very wealthy so he’s never had to deal with these issues. I think the House GOP has lost touch with the real issues that real people face. And obviously they couldn’t care less. There is one group they didn’t touch and also gave tax cuts to—the very wealthy. Surprise, surprise. Plus he wants to kick 10 million people off their health insurance by repealing the Affordable Care Act. Many other consequences of the repeal of the ACA, are that people with pre-existing conditions could be kicked off their insurance and would have to pay ridiculously high premiums they could not afford, plus if people get too sick by the insurance company standards, they would lose their insurance. So Ryan wants us to go back to the good old days where the main cause of bankruptcy is overwhelming medical bills. That’s just a few highlights. But I have figured out what the “P” means in GOP. It stands for pain in my book, because they sure like to spread it around.
