Fuck Rand Paul!

I'm not sure if there's a thread on this article already so I apologize in advance if this is a repost.

Democrats hit Rand Paul for disability comments

Washington (CNN)Democrats blasted Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday for arguing that a majority of people collecting Social Security disability benefits are taking advantage of the system.

Speaking at a New Hampshire diner about government waste, the Kentucky Republican said "there's always somebody who's deserving" of entitlement programs, "But everybody in this room knows somebody who's gaming the system."

"What I tell people is, if you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn't be getting a disability check. Over half of the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts -- join the club," he said, drawing a few laughs from the audience. "Who doesn't get a little anxious for work everyday and their back hurts? Everybody over 40 has back pain."

So in one sentence, this asshole declares that anyone who "looks normal" is not disabled.

You want to talk about real anxiety Mr. Paul? How about how I wake at night and shake my child awake because I think she has died! Or how about holding my son in my arms as he stairs at me and takes his final breaths! Shall we even talk about the seven different meds I take for anxiety, depression, and PTSD?

Fuck you, you generalizing ignorant son of a bitch!

Something to ponder.....
