Wasserman Schultz:GOP budget puts senior citizen lives at risk(death trap for seniors)
New DNC chief: GOP budget puts senior citizen lives at risk
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/155987...

Republicans' budget plan would put seniors' lives at risk, the incoming chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said Thursday.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman tapped by President Obama to lead the DNC, said she stood by her characterization of Republicans' 2012 budget as a "death trap" for seniors.

When pressed on whether she intended to say that the GOP budget put seniors' lives at risk, Wasserman Schultz doubled down.

"That's exactly what I'm suggesting," she said during an appearance on CNN.

2. willing to die to save the nation
that's what hundreds of thousands of now-senior citizens said back in the 1960s and 1970s. as the old song goes, "and my uncle sam, he said knock-knock, here i am" and off we marched, draftees and regular army, to whatever lay ahead. i was willing then to die, or kill, to save the nation from the evils of communism. what we fools did not notice is the far more serious disease that grew unchecked and now infects teabaggers and elected officials nationwide, assholia gravis, the not-so-silent killer.
