Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the Republican whip, argued that unemployment benefits dissuade people from job-hunting “because people are being paid even though they’re not working.”

This is the Republican Party. This is what most Republicans believe. I disagree. I don’t respectfully disagree. I find the mindset and policies of the GOP to be abhorrent. Thoroughly.
Don’t tell me the parties are the same, controlled by the corporations, etc. The Democratic Party is seriously flawed, but Republicans truly delight in shitting on people who need help.
I’m not sorry for saying this.
I’m off to dialysis now. If I could no longer work because of my kidney failure, Republicans would call me a maggot and a leech for relying on Medicare. F*** them.
Government doesn’t work because Republicans don’t want it to work. They obstruct everything and celebrate when people think Washington is broken. They argue that nothing can be trusted to government, citing how nothing gets done. And then they make sure that nothing gets done. And Americans are dumb enough to fall for it.
