Here’s the relevant video that I can’t embed.
I’m still glad congress got a house cleaning, but as I’ve said and implied thousands of times; both sides suck and are both blatantly corrupt. Not only is it sickening that our government would ignore these heroes for so long, it’s absolutely inexcusable that the Republicans would continue to allow these sick and dying people to not have health care just so they can get their way. These are dying heroes! Not fucking bargaining chips! What the hell is going on with this country? What has happened to us? Tax cuts? Who gives a shit? It’s impossible to pay off the debt anyway! We are going to allow these people to die over an imaginary economy run by white-collar criminals? And I’m a conspiracy nut?
