Remember when Republicans were Rational? Remember when they weren't Selfish Greedy Lying Sociopaths? [View all]

Frankly, me neither, but there was a time when they cared about people too, they weren't just shamelessly mean jackasses.

Eisenhower strengthened Social Security and spoke highly of it often...

This Administration's strong support of the social security program was demonstrated by the broad expansion and improvements enacted in 1954 at my recommendation. The 1954 Amendments, which extended coverage of the program to millions of additional persons and included higher benefits for all who were then or who would become beneficiaries, have had a major impact in bringing greater security to our people.













It wasn't even all that long ago. Maybe if we remind those Republicans in our lives, that they once had a sense of decency, they will remember the portion of their brain that is still sane and perhaps learn to exercise it. There's a good person in those (some of those)nut jobs somewhere, maybe we can wake them up to what they once were...
