kill the poor

In the midst of California's meltdown (thanks, Arnie), of course the first targets are programs for the poor. Republicans will always put programs for the poor on the chopping block before ever even considering any sort of tax increase, no matter what (cigs, liquor) or who, is affected (the richest among us). EVERY SINGLE TIME. That's who they are. And that's fine. It's their prerogative.

Except that, well, you know.

Naturally, it’s the party of Jesus – the champions of family values – that are leading the charge to kick poor kids off the health care rolls rather than raise taxes on the uber-wealthy/others.   Perhaps we need another symposium on how God-less Democrats can better connect to faith voters.   Is Amy Sullivan available?
Greed sure is a bitch though.  It’s as if the California GOP/voters are in a plane going down, and each would rather grasp their bag of gold than grab a parachute.   Or rather, they’d use a parachute for themselves and then use one for their gold rather than give it to a poor kid. 
Like Jesus would do.

Can I get an amen?
