When the Titanic was going down on that terrible day in 1912, there were not enough lifeboats for everyone to be saved. So the first-class passengers were given priority. Not much has changed with the rich 105 years later. “I got mine, too bad about you,” is the motto of many of them.
Plus it is amazing how easily people forget where they came from.
Senate leader Mitch McConnell battled polio as a kid. Government health care healed him. Now he is happy to see 22 million people uninsured with his party’s healthcare bill. Same with House of Representatives leader Paul Ryan. His father died young and he took advantage of public assistance to get a good education.
Now, he and Mitch are in their lifeboat and they are using their oars to knock away any third-class passengers who are desperate to save their lives by climbing into the partially filled lifeboat. Donald Trump is a gigantic ass but these two men are simply evil.
Wait until their proposed budget gets announced, if you want to see malice in practice.
