Boehner, Cantor to meet with Newtown families

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) The two top Republicans in the GOP-controlled House of Representatives will meet Thursday with families who lost loved ones in the Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school shooting.

According to an aide to John Boehner, the House speaker and Majority Leader Eric Cantor will sit down with the families, who will be in Washington to mark six months since the massacre that left 26 dead.

"Speaker Boehner's heart goes out to the victims of this senseless tragedy and their families. He wants to hear their stories and talk about ways to reduce the culture of violence in our country," Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said.

1. Newtown folks---

Do NOT turn your back on these two slimy reptiles. ( I know, most reptiles are not slimy, but these two are.)

5. I... I can't imagine what either of these fuckers would have to say...

'Yeah, tough shit your kids were killed'

That is what their actions say, I do not expect their words will be much different. Fucking tools.

15. So, I guess the waiting period for politicizing the massacre has passed?

It doesn't seem long ago that Republicans were castigating Democrats for "politicizing" the death of children. These two have no shame.

16. Too bad they will not take the families seriously

Boehner and Cantor will only give lip service to these people.

17. And here's what Boehner and Cantor need to do.

Take action on the Newtown families' behalf, namely on the following.

From the link above:

Republican Rep. Peter King of New York and Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson of California had planned to propose a background check bill similar to the one considered by the Senate, but it has not gone anywhere since the Senate version was dropped two months ago.

18. What do they plan to do for these poor parents at this stage?

Make it easier for their still existing kids to get guns? Or maybe they are gonna propose selling every school kid bullet proof vests. These two cretins are indirectly responsible for every mass shooting in the USA in the last decade.
