35. Where are our Democratic representatives in all this? I am sure they know the pain and death it will

I have a theory that once someone reaches a point where they will never go hungry they go out of their way to inflict misery on the most vulnerable.

I have been trying to reach my representatives and find that they agree with the Republicans that this sacrifice to the alter of greed must be made and the blood of choice on this alter are the elderly, the poor and the disabled (Some of which are dying of the diseases that are disabling them.

How can there be any excuse for this? there is much much more money in the tax shelters of the insanely rich to avoid killing poor people, but they will not go there. There is no reason for this that makes any sense, do we have a president at all? does he care for anything other than the chamber of commerce that he has been dating?

How can we reach these sociopaths that claim to represent all of us when the obvious truth is just something for them to laugh off as they count their money?

It is time to wake up to the fact that genocide is the logical step in their pretending to reduce a debt that was competely engineered by unnecessary, very large tax cuts for those that profit in the billions over our suffering, it is time to wake up to the fact that those we elect are in complicit agreement in this shameful "culling of the herd".

The rich as always are rewarded rather than asked to share what they steal from the rest of us.

I can not get a straight answer from my Reps or my president, just outright lies such as "SS is destroying the budget" - a neat trick considering it is running a surplus in the trillions and has nothing at all to do with the budget.

Can anyone here get an answer as to why they are so blatantly destroying the poor even as they further enrich the rich?
Lord knows I can't.
