Two Senior Republicans Tell Us What They Think of the Bob Cratchits of the World

In my last blog I made a point that Ebenezer Scrooge was a Republican in that he really did not give a wit about anything but money. Well a couple of Republicans accidentally made my point. “Over the weekend, Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) hashed over the plan [tax cut] with his home state’s largest newspaper, the Des Moines Register. Turning to the party’s idea of doing away with the estate tax, Grassley framed the current law as a hindrance to responsible saving.”

“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing,” Grassley told the Register in a story published Saturday. “As opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”

So see, people with money to invest, investors are the right people and the rest of us are up to eyeballs in booze, women, or movies. Now just to raise an interesting point, say hard working people really were spending every penny on whatever the hell they want? Isn’t that the point? Instead of giving money to people who bank it, wouldn’t you want them to spend every cent to stimulate the economy? But it shows as I have argued over and over, Republicans think you are poor because you deserve it. The same guys who are now turning to support Roy Moore, a pervert, see value in him, but not a hard working middle class family. That is not hyperbole, Google it and watch the video on Grassley. Watch Trump now endorse Roy Moore. Watch how Mitch McConnell is stepping back from his tough talk and talking about letting Alabama decide. If morality is what Alabama decides, we are all fucked.

Oh and the other walking scum, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch:

On the Senate floor Thursday, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) responded to a question from Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) about the future of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, a low-cost health insurance plan for children from low-income families that Congress has yet to review since it expired Oct. 1.

The question came during a debate on the Republican tax bill, which Hatch presided over as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee.

In response, Hatch claimed the health insurance program had not yet been renewed due to a lack of funds.

“The reason CHIP’s having trouble is because we don’t have money anymore,” Hatch said.

And then explained why, despite his support of a bill offering trillions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations, we absolutely must start slashing the social safety net immediately:

“I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves, won’t lift a finger, and expect the federal government to do everything.”

See millionaires need tax cuts, poor kids deserve to die, lazy bastards. Oh, and the RNC has decided to back Roy Moore. This is who we put in power in this country and if you don’t think they are evil, there is something wrong with you.

Mitt Romney stood up with this sadly out of touch tweet:

Here is the problem, your party lost its honor years ago and the GOP he is talking about does not exist any more. When Mitt and his fellow fools finally wake up they will find they have no party any more. Again, the Republican Party has become a party of no values but power, and that is the very definition of evil. There is no going back.
