The party of no has if you can believe it, hit a new low...lower than low...lowest of the low! The blockage/filibuster of a bill that would afford health care for the 911 Responders...you know....the ones that risked lives and limbs to rescue victims of a vicious attack on America perpetrated by Islamic extremists.
The apparent leader of this travesty? Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), THE Dr. NO of the republican party. How ANY American has the stones to deny help to these brave American Heroes defies logic, and is ethically and morally reprehensible.
To deny these heroes the help they require...and at the same time hold the neediest of the needy Americans (the unemployed), hostage by denying a desperately needed extension of unemployment benefits in a time when such a move would devastate and probably wipe out the majority of middle class America, and in the same breath... demand an unfunded MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR tax cut for the top 1% of this country is nothing short of insanity and tantamount to an act of terrorism. What ever happened to our stance of not negotiating with terrorists?
The party of no has become the party of shame...the sad part?...THEY HAVE NO SHAME.
The America I knew...and served my country for...is no longer.
Thanks to the right wing, obstructionist, rethuglican party of NO...the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off until further notice.
A pox on the members of congress and their families who voted against this bill!
Another example of the corrupt, ineptness of the people put in charge by this administration...
The FCC will vote today to end the Internet as we know it. Lobbyists from the largest Internet providers and wall street corporate skells have poured MILLIONS of dollars into the pockets of the bureaucrats at the FCC and our so called representatives on capitol hill in an effort to corner the Internet and effectively do the bidding of a soon to be formed Internet cartel...its bidding..and its bidding only. This ruling will allow only those huge corporations who have formed a union to provide ONLY that information they want you to see...and information for which they have collected a fee from the information providers.
Thank you Democraps and Rethuglicans for allowing the once open Internet to be turned into what will be the uber restricted, worthless, and ILLEGALLY monitored piece of crap, modeled after China...hey...they already own most of America now anyway because they own our debt...Why not use their idea of the Internet? After all, it fits right into the restrictions these large cartels will put on the information available. If the information didn't come from them, or they weren't paid for it...you ain't gonna get it!
Proof that the once great America that we knew...The America that stood for Freedom and Equality...is a thing of the past...the only ones who will have access, freedom, and equality will be the super rich...the corrupt corporate/wall streeters, and our corrupt, bought and paid for government.
I am truly ashamed of what my country has become....No longer the United States of America....no longer OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE...but rather FOR THE CORPORATIONS AND ELITISTS....
SHAME ON AMERICA! SHAME ON THE DEMOCRAPS AND RETHUGLICANS....SHAME ON BIG BUSINESS/INTERNET PROVIDERS...AND...SHAME ON THIS GOVERNMENT/ADMINISTRATION....YOUR INDIFFERENCE TO THE WILL AND WELL BEING OF THE PEOPLE HAS NO BOUNDARIES!
And lastly....SHAME ON "WE THE PEOPLE" WHO HAVE ALLOWED THIS TO TAKE PLACE...WHILE WE SAT BACK AND WATCHED IN SILENCE....
