This simple vote demonstrates without a shadow of a doubt, the Dems are not serious about lowering the deficit. All they want to do is give the “illusion” that they are fiscally responsible, which we know, they are not. They are going to use the rhetoric that the GOP wants to starve people and throw them out in the cold, yada, yada, yada……. All they know how to do is spew hate speech and throw money to their cronies, and are not into doing the things that truly help people up, and out of poverty. This is because, poverty IS their base, and they rely on people believing they are victims of one sort or another. Nothing about responsibility or breaking the cycle of social dependence…..
