Sorry, folks. Those programs that were benefiting the poor and middle class? They're now on the chopping block. The GOP spent your money on tax cuts for the uber-rich and now needs to tighten the government belt.

The irony, or sadness, is this is how the GOP governs in the end anyway. Cut taxes, debt explodes, blame spending and demand cuts to decrease the deficit.

It is a pretty simple metric. They dislike the government doing anything. Poor people or those with less are that way because they made poor choices. That is a very strong view.

And they will likely get away with it too.

I imagine that most do not even see the irony of the things that they are doing. I guess the era of finding solutions is over. Let politics rule all. Party and ideology above country and the needs of most of that country.
