Politico. I am sick to f-king death of these know-nothing liberals being allowed to smear conservatives and republicans (note the differentiation) without anyone but us checking them on it!
The constant vilification of those who want fiscal sanity and the ability to keep the fruits of their own labor, combined with the spurious accusations of hate and wanton disregard for our fellow man makes me want to murder kittens. I’m fed the f-k up with these people. I just wanted to take a minute and make sure that you all are aware of it.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas):
“First of all I’d like our Republican friends to stop a war on the working people of America,” she said on CNN’s “Early Start.” [...]
“[The] president is not in any way suggesting that he’s not willing to negotiate,” she said. “He asked the question, ‘When are the Republicans going to be considerate of those who get up every day and work? Or those who need Medicare or Social Security and Medicaid?’ That is what the bottom line is for the president and for Democrats, to protect benefits in a reasonable manner, and to ensure that we have the revenue to bring down the deficit and continue to operate in the needs of the American people.”
She also slammed Republican focus on deficit reduction.
“If my Republican friends would think about the working people of America, stop the war on working people of America, and not adhere to the fact that in a recession you must constantly focus on the deficit,” she said[...]
“And not adhere to the fact that in a recession, you must constantly focus on the deficit…” Yes. Let’s all just ignore 16 trillion lb gorilla in the corner. That’s smart economics. I’m ashamed that so many of my former countrymen esteem themselves so lowly that they fall for this shit.
