Isn't it a bit ironic that the "small" gov't teapublicans quickly jumped in line for financial disaster aid from the government following the recent tornado outbreaks and floods?
Doesn't it dawn on these people that there IS a need for many of these programs?
Why should MY tax dollars be used to help people in Arkansas or any other state? I didn't tell you to live in a tornado alley, you CHOSE to live there, knowing the possibilities. I didn't tell you to build in a flood plain, you thought it would be nice to live along the river.
When you guys go claiming the insurance for the destruction, MY rates go up.
I have to pay for your bad choice(s).
We do this things.....UNITED, because it's the right thing to do.
It's the right thing to do when we help families who have fallen on hard times, too.
It's the right thing to do when we protect Medicare and Social Security for the elders who have worked their lives participating in the production and development of this country.
Can you now say that somehow these people do not DESERVE this?
We are a UNITED States.
When we help our fellow Americans be healthy, safe, and comfortable, we help ourselves rise to the same standard of living we can all enjoy.
