For The Love Of Money And The Hate Of The Poor – ‘Trump budget chief who wants to cut Meals on Wheels says he is sacrificing by giving up business cards’

“Yes,” he began. “I don’t have a business card to give to you today, John, because, at the Office of Management and Budget, we have to pay for our own business cards. So it does start at home but it’s already started.”

Kind of like Donald Trumps ‘sacrifices’ –

Yes he actually said that…..

‘When it comes to cutting the budget, President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress have proposed significant cuts to federal spending that helps the least among us. Severe cuts will come from programs that help poor seniors, military children, education, health and more’.

‘At the same time, Trump is still using $3 million each weekend in taxpayer dollars to vacation at his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago’.

Go to the 5:15 mark –

‘Mulvaney agreed that he knew the bill would hurt children and prevent them from having access to nutritional food from organizations like Meals on Wheels, but he wants people to know he’s suffering too’.

“Yes,” he began. “I don’t have a business card to give to you today, John, because, at the Office of Management and Budget, we have to pay for our own business cards. So it does start at home but it’s already started.”

The Coming Republican Dark Age – ‘Jaws Drop As Trump WH Claims Starving Seniors By Killing Meals On Wheels Is Compassionate’

‘Trump White House Calls Starving Seniors An Act Of Compassion’

See there not ‘showing any results’…….

Feeding old people so they live longer isn’t a ‘result’……

‘Later Mulvaney was asked if this is a hard-hearted budget. He answered’,

“I don’t think so. In fact, I think it is one of the most compassionate things we can do to. You’re only focusing on half of the equation. Right? You’re focusing on recipients of the money. We’re trying to focus on both the recipients and the folks who give us the money in the first place, and I think it’s fairly compassionate to go to them and say look, we’re not going to ask you for your hard earned money anymore.”

The Coming Republican Dark Age – ‘Mick Mulvaney: No Evidence After-School Programs Help Kids Do Better’

The Republican Dark Age – ‘Congress Sends Trump Measure Expanding Drug Tests For Unemployed’

Let’s assume the worst about those who need help – Republican christian values…….

WASHINGTON (AP) — ‘The Senate on Tuesday sent President Donald Trump a measure to expand the number of applicants for jobless benefits who can be drug-tested’.

‘The White House has said Trump will sign the measure into law as a cancellation of “unnecessary regulations.”

‘Lawmakers in the GOP-controlled Congress have complained that under President Barack Obama, the government placed too many limits on states for deciding which unemployment applicants can be drug-tested’.

‘The Labor Department’s regulation meant that states could only test applicants for unemployment benefits who do jobs that require drug testing. The resolution passed by the House and approved by the Senate 51-48 on Tuesday would cancel those limits’.

‘Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Thursday introduced a bill that would implement a nationwide abortion ban, modeling it after the “heartbeat bills” already found unconstitutional in federal court’.

‘Under HR 490, an abortion provider who performs an abortion without “determining … whether the fetus has a detectable heartbeat,” “informing the mother of the results of that determination,: or “after determining … that the fetus has a detectable heartbeat,” will face fines and up to five years in federal prison’.

‘In a press release, King called Roe v. Wade “unconstitutional,” arguing, “lives have been ended by the abortion industry, all with a rubber stamp by the federal government.”

“Human life, beginning at the moment of conception, is sacred in all of its forms and today, I introduced a bill that will protect the lives of voiceless innocents,” he said’.
