House GOP Now Kamikaze Pilots- "Kill Obamacare or We'll Kill the Economy"
By now, Americans are used to having a gun held to our heads by the Republican Syndicate in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Remember Al Capone and his gang of thugs from the early 1920s to 1931?
There's not much difference now, with this once effective party.
The GOP are now just thieves that continue to steal the hope of Americans for a better life.
Where's Eliot Ness and the Bureau of Prohibition when you need them?
Republicans have proposed spending cuts for programs serving the disadvantaged while promoting tax cuts that would help corporate America and the wealthy.
They have attacked the poor in their desire to 'balance the budget' while helping the rich. That's who the GOP now has become- blatant lobbyists for the rich.
The House GOP are willing to tank our economy to de-fund Obamacare.
They say Obamacare is a bad law and will hurt 'Americans'.
Let's be frank with one another. It's not 'Americans' the Republicans are afraid Obamacare will hurt. It's insurance companies or so they think.
30 million more people will be able to buy insurance because of Obamacare. Those that still can't afford healthcare will be given subsidies that will make health care affordable for them.
The House GOP knows this.
Teapublicans are looking for a good paying job on Wall Street after they leave Congress but not before they tank our economy in order to get that $2 million a year job for themselves.
Why? Because they don't care about anyone but themselves.
These GOP House members want to cut food stamps for the poor. They want to restrict minority's rights to vote. They thump the Bible as they pass laws to restrict women's rights.
These Tea Party Republicans are in Congress as nothing more than saboteurs to our government. They exploit their time in Congress by gaining as much as they can for themselves.
They are like the Al Capone Syndicate in Chicago in years gone by. They are criminals that conned enough ignorant people to vote for them to get elected and now hold the rest of us hostage again for their own personal gain.
Sen. Ted Cruz and representatives like him aren't ideologues that are 'standing firm on principle' for the "benefit of the American people'.
No. Not at all. He and the others like him are con men that prey upon the minority of ignorant, uninformed Americans that don't know the difference.
Republicans need to stop talking about the social issues. Americans don't need the 'moral conscience' of the GOP Taliban who want women to remain subservient.
The GOP is no longer fiscally CONSERVATIVE. They've lost that mantle too, after the Iraq War and the Bush Tax Cuts.
The GOP is a party in search of a constituency and a conscience.
The GOP has become an enemy of the people of the United States who is willing to hurt millions of elderly, children, and the middle class and poor so that they can give more to those people that will reward them when they leave Congress.
The House GOP need to be arrested for obstruction of justice.
