Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

The True Impact of the Ryan Budget

I came across this chart that clearly shows who takes the hit in the draconian Republican budget proposal.  I look at these kinds of plans and I imagine a Bible story where Jesus tells the pauper to go pay another 10% in taxes to the Emperor and them maybe one of the Apostles will give him a few crumbs of bread.

This is just all so backwards.  In times of economic stress, the GOP proposes to take even more from the poor and working class, give more to the rich and continue to sink billions of dollars a week into weapons.  These guys are forever bowing their heads in prayer and professing Christian values but the only thing they want to spend money on is blowing up non-Christian folks in oil-producing nations, after ensuring they set aside plenty for themselves, of course.
