Republicans Cut Funding And Kill Americans As Policy – ‘Republicans’ Rule A Death Sentence For 9 Million Disabled Americans’

ssdi and republican

  • Due to the House Republicans’ unilateral “rule change,” the disability fund is projected to be exhausted by the end of 2016, and if Congress fails to correct the Republican rule change beneficiaries will receive a 20 percent cut in benefits’.

‘The acting Commissioner Calvin said that on average, recipients get about $1,200 a month and depend on it for paying rent, buying food and other necessities’.

‘$1,200 per month is below the federal poverty line and she noted that at that level people “are barely surviving as it is. If you get a cut there, you’re not going to be able to survive.”

‘One of the Republicans opposed to Social Security in general, and who instigated the House rule change, Tom Price, said the program needs to be cut due to rampant abuse and fraud…..’

‘About 8.9 million people receive disability benefits from the fund and its eligibility guidelines are extremely stringent’.

  • ‘First, it is not welfare because beneficiaries must have paid into the program while they worked at least one-quarter of their adult life, and five of the last 10 years’.
  • ‘The overwhelming majority of beneficiaries are 55 or older, and many of them die within a few years of first receiving the insurance according to CBPP’;
  • ‘Many die while they are waiting for a determination that they qualify as disabled that may take 2-3 years and several appeals’.
  • ‘About a quarter of recipients are mentally impaired, have muscular or skeletal problems, or suffer from diseases such as diabetes, Lou Gehrig’s disease, congestive heart failure, and cancer’;

The kind of debilitating infirmities that Republicans claim make recipients frauds, abusers, and takers’.

Republicans…The Party Of Hypocrites – ‘House conservatives push McConnell to gut filibuster’

mcconnell filibuster

Mitch McConnell – “I think probably the biggest service the Senate has provided to America is the things it has not passed. Some of the proudest moments I can think of in my career are the things I have stopped.”
————

‘A growing number of House GOP conservatives are pressuring Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday to invoke the “nuclear option” and change the chamber’s rules to pass a bill defunding President Obama’s executive actions on immigration’.(1)
————

Mitch McConnell on the filibuster – 05/22/2014 :

“I do not favor turning the Senate into a majoritarian institution, even though we would probably have some short-term advantage to doing it,” McConnell said.

“I think the supermajority requirement in the Senate has been important for the country,” he said. “I think probably the biggest service the Senate has provided to America is the things it has not passed. Some of the proudest moments I can think of in my career are the things I have stopped.”(2)

Indeed…..let’s go back and learn our history…..

The pilgrim’s wanted to live outside of the legal authority of Virginia’s colonial government – That’s why the Founding Father’s created the Constitution so that we could ALL live together as a society……..not isolated, independent States.

“All it takes is one good guy with a gun……” – ‘Bill would allow concealed weapons across state lines’

gun nuts8

Ummmm……. “acts like a drivers license…..”

So………..the guns will be registered? Insured? The owner licensed? Criminal background check?

Oh….No they won’t be so not like a driver’s license at all……

Just a free pass for any nut to carry weapons across State lines.

‘A new report from Everytown explains that, “some states do thorough criminal background checks on applicants, while other states have such ineffective permitting systems that they inadvertently issue permits to felons.”

  • ‘The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act would allow gun owners who have a concealed carry permit in their home state to bring their firearms in any other state with concealed-carry laws’.

“This operates more or less like a driver’s license,” Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the second-ranking Republican in the upper chamber, told The Hill. “So, for example, if you have a driver’s license in Texas, you can drive in New York, in Utah and other places, subject to the laws of those states.”
