Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI):
“… Very important for people to understand that what was NOT included in the sequestration were those programs, those mandatory programs: Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, food stamps, Pell grants. And what the Republicans would love to see is for this president to serve up on a silver platter these programs, and not just make some changes in them, but structural changes to undermine the programs. … Ultimately, in order to end the sequester, that is the demand that they’re making on the president, that he make structural changes to Medicare and Social Security.“
The GOP is on the losing side of every issue and they know it. They become more desperate each day, so they resort to blaming President Obama for anything and everything while sticking to the same old policies that lost them the election in November.
They know America stands firmly with the Dems, but that won’t stop them from trying to destroy the very programs that the poor, sick, and elderly depend on so that their top 1% buddies can get their tax breaks. America first!
