Yeah! That'll show 'em.
Mick Hargrave
Yes then Congress should be forced to cut spending and submit an actual budget that reduces the National Debt.

You mean the new $1.5 trillion addition to the deficit the new tax cuts creates is a bad thing? The rich have taken a beating will be even richer. Many Are Getting Arrested

The last shutdown, the biggest bitch I heard was about monuments being closed in DC.

I was raising hell about the $24 billion price tag to shut the government down in 2013. It seems there are more than a few that enjoy wasting taxpayer money on government shutdowns on TPC. The GOP controls the government, and if it shuts down that is the same as saying we want to lose control of Con...

Shut it down. Defund the National Endowment for the Arts, Department of Education, Health and human services to include section 8 housing. I imagine that would put a lot of Dick's friends out in the street.
Richard Hertz
To my knowledge I don't know anyone who lives in Section 8 housing. Is it in your Christian nature to throw poor people out in the street? Not a good look during the holidays, but hey the Beatitudes are a bunch of dribble to some Christians.

I do know some poor senior citizens who receive welfare. The old woman I know gets $200 a month in food stamps on top of her $750 SS check. In the winter she did receive help with the heating assistance program. I think that was about $500-600. That adds up to about $3,000 a year. I'm sure this old ...

You really should quit shaking your mom down for her monthly checks.
Richard Hertz
My mom is deceased, and it is Christian of you to joke about her. Are you mean to small animals? Kick puppies? What is your holiday tradition?

And it qulifies her for a lot more freebies! Free phone subsidized housing, subsidized property tax, and so on! Granted you have to know were and how to get them but it all ads up!
Richard Hertz
Missouri only subsidizes property taxes for localities that vote for those tax breaks, and in this area it is only for businesses moving into industrial parks. It seems a stretch to think a cheap phone, and all of these other add ons will amount to $65,000 more dollars for the poor. The Trump phones...

Well "dick", this is the internet and people do lie. Kind of like politicians and democrats.
Richard Hertz
I'm amazed you're admitting to lying and being a Democrat. It makes sense though. You're not funny, you have no grasp of facts, and you troll the decent people of TPC. I'm related to a large number of Democrats, and can tell you they are nothing like you.
