They want to cut MEALS ON WHEELS??? Seriously??

I know in my area they bring lunch to seniors 5 days a week. This has more value than a few dollars a month in COLA. How low can these heartless, callous, selfish, ASSHOLES go?? Move the tax cuts up from $250,000 to a million for the rich and pay for it in part with Meals on Wheels?? When are the jerks that vote R going to wake up?? I'm so tired of them. Thank God Reid won't put Plan B up for a vote!

Am I alone in wondering why the chained CPI is even on the table when we'd already be compromising by raising the tax cuts up to $400,000? Aren't we then compromising a lot more? Why isn't lifting the cap on FICA on the table?

i'm just soooooooooo frustrated and distraught.

It's sad the state we're in...and the elected having even been sworn in to their new terms.

For some, the Meals on Wheels delivery person is the only contact they have with a human being.

take chemo patients to and from the hospital, because they refused to take the government's $2M/year (part of the Obama Marxism Plan). I really hope we have it out with these people before I shuffle off

10. In most states there are a range of services that help the elderly stay in their own homes and

avoid the higher expense of nursing home care. But all too many rethugs do not understand this.

21. What I don't get about ordinary rethuglican people is....they WANT their benefits cut?

I mean, most of them can't be in the 2% crowd so why do they want to see SS reduced as well as Medicare?

I have a rethug ex co-worker friend and he is dying to see Obama/Dems brought low by Boner - and the outcome is less money in his pocket? Cut those benefits, now!!!

35. The problem is that they DO think they're in the 1%

Something like 70% of Americans think they are in the 1% or will be.

These people are f***ing stupid. I got to spend 1 day among the 1%, and there's no comparison to anything like it- the people who think they're doing well have NOTHING on the people who could never work a day in their life and be on perpetual vacation.

23. This confirms my belief the USA is becoming a very

weird and hard and cold country...Assault weapons and hollow bullets are more important than children...Senionr will be denied meals on wheels....

Guns are a right but health care is for profit and a privilege.
I don't believe any kind of gun control will be allowed by the Republicans...

I am boycotting the USA....I used to go "south" to Florida the last winters....Not going this year...choosing a Caribbean island and going to vacation in Europe this summer....

I will feel safer..

28. I saw a lot of gated communities with mansions in Florida

I met a NJ widow who sold her gated community NJ house and bought a gated community Florida house. She asked me outright last winter how come Obama has not shown his birth certificate....She hates Obama so much.....She is one of those who have turned me off to Florida.

I feel so sorry for those who work so hard in Florida and have little so and have no health care. I met them...It is a crime.

27. Your rich conservative suck as much as ours do

so don't kid yourself on that account. You also have religious loonies who can be convinced to support their bullshit if they promise to end abortion and gay marriage.

What you don't have is a constant 24/7/365 barrage of hate from radio and Pox News up there.

Your assholes are just as awful as our assholes. You just have legal protection that keeps them from being legitimized.

37. A friend's mother was extremely ill

Meals on wheels ensured that she had some healthy meals, and provided contact with the outside world during a period of several months.

The idea that we can't cut a penny for defense (not talking about troops or the VA, but for expensive and expansive unproven weapons/vehicles - with no systems for cost containment) - but we can cut off, or curtail extremely, lifelines to citizens who are most vulnerable: Revolting.
