Nancy Pelosi: A Republican friend of mine told me that his party is “indifferent” to “really hungry children,” you know

posted at 12:41 pm on March 11, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

What does that even mean? That some shall-remain-unnamed Republican colleague literally told her, presumably when asked why he supported the one percent budget cut to the federal food stamp program recently passed in the farm bill or why he did not support extending unemployment benefits or something, that his entire party’s policy platform is based off of its collective and utter indifference to the plight of families in poverty? …Why do I feel skeptical? Via RCP:

I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital lifelines for struggling families and really hungry children. This colleague’s response was telling in its blunt nature and it’s stunning in its honestly. What he said was to the Republican caucus, these people you are talking about are invisible, and the Republican caucus is indifferent to them. Invisible and indifferent. This is just plain wrong. That is not the leadership the American people deserve and it is up to us to demonstrate clearly how Democrats are different.

Ahh, yes — because with the Minority Leader, it’s never the case that Republicans have well-intentioned yet incorrect or impractical policy proposals. It’s always the case that Republicans’ common unifying characteristic is their sociopathic disdain for their fellow human beings, or else their innate aversion to things like “clean water and clean air” or whatever. I mean, I get it: Who wants to have an uncomfortably honest discussion about policy outcomes when you can just slander Republicans for their ostensibly intrinsic derangement? As Ed already noted earlier today, it’s been mighty useful for Democrats to aggressively pretend that Republicans are the craven hyper-partisans in this rodeo (while they themselves are of course paragons of centrism and human compassion), so remember: The only possible solution for lifting people out of poverty is further expanding the already unsustainable entitlement state, or else you’re an apathetic, uncompromising, black-hearted bottom-feeder.

She lies, she has no friends.

I had a “friend” accuse me of wanting poor people kicked to the street and for hungry people to starve because I said the government needs to do more to reduce fraud of those systems as well as reduce those who actually qualify for hundreds of government programs at once.

He is a self proclaimed “part socialist”…their kind has no honor or decency.

I hear Nancy Pelosi is indifferent to the hungry children of cannery workers in American Samoa, where she happens to own a cannery, and where she inserted an EXCEPTION to the last minimum wage increase.

It’s probably the same person that told Harry Reid Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years.

oscarwilde on March 11, 2014 at 12:53 PM

Pelosium: A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311. These particles are held together by dark particles called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. The symbol of Pelosium is PU. Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientist to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as Critical Morass. When catalyzed with money, Pelosium activates CNNadnausium, an element that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons as Pelosium.

astonerii on March 11, 2014 at 1:24 PM

We’re going to simplify for dramatic effect? Ok, I can play that game.

Republicans hate the poor; they keep trying to get them to work, improve themselves, and not be poor anymore; but instead be useful members of society.

The Democrats LOVE the poor; they want to keep the poor in poverty forever, and add more poor people whenever they can. Nothing thrills a Democrat more than knowing they can lock the poor into poverty for their entire lives.

Look at their proposals, raise costs on food and energy, remove low paying jobs from the market entirely, and add more unskilled workers from other countries by the millions.

IF your goal WERE to have more poverty, more poor, and more long-term poor stuck in poverty; what would you do differently from the Democrat’s main action policies?

Anything?

Let me know if she still wants to play this game.
