    McConnell Video Touts GOP: ‘We Are The Party Of Compassion’

Otherwise, you'll have migrations of people unable to work from states with bad care systems to states with good care systems. So if Missouri and Colorado decided to help it's disabled people and Kansas decided not to, then MO and CO would end up with all the former Kansans who are disabled. That's not right, either. Why should MO and CO have to support the disabled people form KS?
    Ironic since your last statement is precisely what happens. Worse...not only are other states forced to carry the debt of states, they pass that debt and irresponsibility on to future generations. And THAT is the ultimate beauty of social spending. No responsibility. Pass that in to others. Great grandkids....here ya go...have a nice healthy cup of shut the hell up and deal with the debt.

    They feel so sad that corporations have to pay for things like a subsistence wage to workers and safe working conditions so their executives can have even more money in lower taxed capital gains after their shares rises in value after their lobbyists donate campaign contributions to enough Representatives and Senators to get a bail out package after their management has driven the company into the ground.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    No, it isn't what happens. As the system works now, KS also has to spend money to support disabled people in KS. The other way they wouldn't have to spend anything but they'd still be churning out people that were born or became disabled.


    I have no problem with cutting back debt spending. Shall we start with the military?

    Of course it is. No responsibility. No concern over issues like illegal immigration. Dump consequences on future generations. What could possibly go wrong.

    Absolutely the military should be cut. There are extraordinary abuses that can and should be targeted that would never even begin to touch military personnel and readiness. That's a foolish ploy you tried...doesn't work with me. I am actually consistent when it comes to fiscal responsibility. Enough so I left the GOP over it.

    Good for you!

    That still doesn't change my mind about helping people with disabilities or, at the present time, people out of work from an economic upheaval they didn't create and made no profit from.

    Nowhere will you find me saying we shouldnt help people with disabilities. We should do it responsibly. We should do it efficiently. .

    ...The party of compassion for rich, able-bodied straight white males.

    Not so much for anyone else, though.
