And then there is this asshole: GOP Senator Calls Veteran’s Care ‘Entitlement’ We ‘Can’t Afford'


GOP Senator Calls Veteran’s Care ‘Entitlement’ We ‘Can’t Afford’
Author: Ryan Denson June 14, 2014 1:10 am
The next time any Republican accuses President Obama or the Democrats of not supporting our veterans, please point them in the direction of Republican senator Jeff Sessions from Alabama who, along with only two other Senators – both Republican – voted against the bi-partisan veterans bill which aimed to ease the healthcare delays for veterans by giving them more access to private care and allowing the Department of Veterans Affairs the funds to open more clinics and hire more medical staff. It passed the House of Representatives unanimously.

But Sessions wasn’t feeling that bi-partisan “support the troops” facade that the GOP loves to paint:

“I feel strongly we’ve got to do the right thing for our veterans. But I don’t think we should create a blank check, an unlimited entitlement program, now.”

This, coming from the party who charged America 24 billion dollars for an immigrant to read Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor.

More turds of wisdom from the Alabama Asshole.


Any active duty or veteran soldier that votes Republican deserves to get shit on when they open their mouths about voting for shooting themselves in the foot. How can you vote for people who use you to shoot up their contributor's bottom lines on your blood, then tell you to fuck off after you come back broken, asking for the benefits and services promised to you when you enlisted?

Oh, I know why. . .because Democrats are pussies, right?

1. The GOP has twisted what the word "Entitlement" means

It's not the "self-entitled" jerk who cuts in line at the store. It's something that is earned.

4. He's in the running, but there are so many to choose from.

 

Cruz, Paul, Sessions, DiFi (the useless DINO).

My vote would be "Uncle Tom" Tim Scott. As odious as Clarence Thomas.

7. I've had my eye on Sessions for years

Tried to make himself a star during the Clinton impeachment/coup d'etat

There is no way that fuck doesn't have a white hood in his closet.

"Hey, we've got ours, so what do we care about the peons?"

6. Paging Senator Sanders. Paging Senator Sanders

 

I think Senator Sanders should give that Alabama asshole a good tongue lashing that he will never forget.

I would recommend that Senate throw that Alabama asshole out.

14. Let's talk about this whole "entitlement" thing

My view is, the soldiers who got Blown To Fuck in those wars YOU, Mr. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, absolutely HAD to have are entitled to every damn thing they need to live a halfway decent life, and YOU, Mr. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, need to start writing a tax increase if you don't think we can afford it.

Oh...that war against ISIS that you absolutely HAVE to have? If you don't want to support the blown-to-fuck soldiers you've already got, you don't get to start any more wars.

15. Ron "Sunspot" Johnson, who uses prison labor at his PACUR factory, said the same thing ...

 

... while at the same time pushing for more war.


I can't believe my once-blue state elected this flaming asshole to the US Senate.

17. They are only "entitlements" when the money goes to people who

 

actually deserve it. What is it called when taxpayer dollars go to bail out large banks and corporations?

19. If we were a real political party, we'd own the veteran vote.

And the black vote. And the immigrant vote. And the women vote. And the working class vote...
