The Dream Act failed, the First Responders Health Care (Zadroga Bill) is stalled but the &#@kin' Republicans got their tax cut bill for the wealthy through. How the electorate who voted for these absolute creeps can sleep at night or live with themselves is beyond comprehension. It defies understanding.
Boehner gives as a reason to stall the bill (paraphrasing here): It's too much work to accomplish between now and the week between Christmas and New Year's. We have to let our staffs enjoy the Christian holiday period.
So, I hope the firefighters and police take a vote whether to respond to fires and/or break-ins at all your houses and decide that they need their time to celebrate the holiday and take off for a week. Fend for yourselves, republicants.
And the Dream Act? The specious labeling of it as "amnesty" is just another sleazy way of NOT DOING THE RIGHT THING! Maybe all republicants should be deported. After all, your ancestors were all illegal aliens!
The mothers of republicants must be spinning in their graves at what they have wrought!
Definition of republicants: sleazebags needing power to feel important and looking backward to the 18th century for guidance; also, cold, heartless piss ants who hate anything and anyone not like them or thinking like them; found on the right side of the aisle in the US Congress with their hands out and leaning heavily into bundles of lobbyist money.
