The Democrats love to cry people a river about how concerned they are for the poor people. They moan endlessly about how concerned they are for the sick and the suffering.
How do they show that?
From Fox News:
Funding for clinical cancer trials and other life-saving research under the National Institutes of Health was cut off in response to the government slimdown, but it looks like the cookie monster will still be knee-deep in chocolate chips (or is it carrots now?)
According to the Daily Treasury Statement and first reported by CNS News, the administration dished out $445 million to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) on the first day of the slimdown, which means funds for the likes of PBS Newshour, NPR and “Sesame Street” are being spent before cancer research.
“It’s more than irresponsible, it is reprehensible. It’s an ‘in-your-face’ move by the administration, blatantly picking winners and losers in this shutdown,” C. Edmund Wright, a columnist for Breitbart.com and American Thinker, told FOX411. “Public broadcasting is a staple of liberal propaganda.”
That’s right. WW2 vets, many of whom do not have long to live are locked out of their memorial. Real Americans are locked out of national parks, fined and threatened with arrest.
Children cannot even have therapy dogs come and comfort them in hospitals.
But the Corporation for Public Broadcasting must be funded. The only difference between the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Pravda of the old Soviet Union is occasionally Pravda told the truth.
They are right. This is an in your face gesture, typical of President Petulant. If the Republicans had a backbone, they would respond by totally defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
We can only hope they will.
A house cleaning is coming that Obama and Reid are going to regret.
I'm not so sure about this.
We're lucky the GOP hasn't caved on the shutdown yet . . . ! Defunding Big Bird? . . . forget about it!
Judson - exactly correct - - TREASON WITHOUT REASON - -
I sure hope Debrajoe is correct in her prediction:
"A house cleaning is coming that Obama and Reid are going to regret."
It can't come soon enough for me.
I am not so optimistic about your prediction. This current administration is infected with evilness.
This has been Obama's plan, redistribute making more people depending on the Government for all there needs, that is how you control them and they will always vote to keep them in office to keep there freebies coming. Why do you think the Democrats are pushing for citizenship for illegals they need there votes so they stay in power. Just look at the freebies the illegals & there children have been getting in the last few years, like pushing there language on our children, letting them stay in America even thought they have broken our laws, they get food stamps, free education for there children, free healthcare & now in Calif. they don't need to be a citizen to practice law or drive a car. Our government is trying to stop states from checking there citizenship to vote and that will get the Democrats a sure vote. If we don't stop these law makers from destroy our nation our children will have a life controlled by a dictatorship.
Patricia, You are so right, going down the road we are on is not sustainable. Then we are adding another entitlement "Obamacare". All the subsides that will be handed out and the expansion of medicaid. Wow, and the goverment will be in control. Simply scarey. It is going to be brutal when it all falls apart.
At the rate things are going, I'm not convinced that we don't have enough men with integrity to stand up and Defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It is abundantly clear with how the Republicans have treated Patriots like Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Mike Lee, that we have a bunch of weasels in Congress. I thank God for giving us men like Senators Cruz, Lee, Rubio, Sessions, Vitter, Rand Paul and several others, but the vast majority aren't worth a hoot for standing up and defending these Patriots and fellow Republicans or We The People, especially Tea Party Patriots, Independents and Libertarians. When you start eating your own for lunch over being patriotic and defending your constituents, it is time to clean house of the weasels. God Help us All. Those weasels in Congress are Traitors to our Country and to us. They should be tried for Treason, tarred and feathered and driven out of Town never to return to political office ever again.
Not to mention the HUGE illegal immigration rally allowed on the Mall yesterday, with Democrats participating and even getting arrested at the rally. While it remains SHUT to AMERICANS!
Keep tweeting supporting to your Congressmen. Keep putting it on your Facebook pages. Keep calling and giving support to the Republicans. Obama's poll numbers dropped to an ALL TIME LOW in an AP poll of 37%. Don't believe the liberal media.... Americans KNOW who to BLAME for this crap!
