I have seen and heard many accounts of what the GOP has in store for the country and in that time I have heard many ask the question….why are Repubs so cruel? Why is that they hate the poor?
You know that is a great question and one that I did not have an answer to but I have thought on this to see where it would take me.
In the 50’s the GOP was soundly in the category of “on the people’s” side….but what the hell happened?
I have my opinion but I am biased and should not be allowed to voice my opinion.
Let’s look at today’s GOP……
Republican Paul Ryan, like most other members of the United States Congress, is a millionaire.Christa Patton is 68 years old. She is frail and no longer able to leave her home. She lives on a fixed income. Patton told Van Jones on a recent episode of his CNN show “The Messy Truth” that she would not be able to eat without the Meals on Wheels program.
Paul Ryan is the speaker of the United States House of Representatives. By his own account, in college he used to hang out with his friends and drink beer while sharing his dreams of cutting Medicaid. When Ryan was 15 years old, his father died from a heart attack caused by alcoholism. Ryan and his family then received his father’s Social Security survivor’s benefits. Ryan used that money to attend college. This was not the only money that Paul Ryan received from federal government. His family built its wealth from receiving government contracts.
If anyone has a better idea then please share and we will take it from there…..
