GOP Sickness On Full Display

Salon: Mick Mulvaney’s “compassion” justification for slashing Meals on Wheels isn’t going over so well - Mulvaney's justifications for taking food out of people's mouths are met with ridicule by Matthew Rozsa
“Who in the hell zeroes out Meals on Wheels?” wrote Charles P. Pierce of Esquire. “Who decides that a program that spends $3 million to help volunteers feed the elderly and infirm in their communities is something that the country can no longer afford? Who are the men in the meetings who make this kind of call? What are their names? Trot them out so the country knows who they are. C’mon, David Brooks, find out who they are and explain why National Greatness Conservatism has a problem with starving elderly shut-ins.”

Well, honestly the Meals on Wheels thing is just the tip of the shitberg these assholes really want to feed elderly poor America. If they could get away with it they'd remove these folks SSI and Medicare and leave them to starve to death in the dark or better yet on the street. This is an exceptionally cruel bunch under Pres. Trumpf and Prime Minister Bannon. The only thing they see Gov't is good for is to defend wealthy folks from the unwashed rabble everywhere. To do it they need every dime and they want these same folks kids or grandkids as well as cannon fodder.
