Scrooge "Robbing Hood" McBush

We have a rip roaring deficit, pretty far into the billions of dollars. We are borrowing money from China, Korea and Japan. And our need for Medicaid is growing. We keep producing the old, the poor and the children. And don't tell me its their fault!
What do we do?
WASHINGTON - The House and Senate debated a budget Thursday that would cut spending on Medicaid health care for the poor for the first time since 1997 in an effort to trim federal deficits...

The budget would shave automatically increasing benefit programs by $35 billion over five years while also cutting taxes by as much as $106 billion over the same period (my emphasis).....

Medicaid gets marked for the single biggest change, a $10 billion reduction over four years.
Let me repeat: The Old, The Poor and The Children.

If you think the man running our country is anything but the biggest fucking hypocrite that ever lived, then may all the people who are going to die because of his insanity just fly down from Never Never land and smack you on the side of the head.

Alice, get out of the way, I'm coming down the Rabbit Hole. Its got to be better than this big ole place that looks like a bally waterhole in Texas.
