Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) has no problem shutting down the VA in order to pursue this ridiculous Republican government shut-down strategy:
WESTMORELAND: If we hold the line, if we get those courageous men and women to be part of our majority. If we say look, the American people we’re listening to the American people, this is what we’re going to do. If government shuts down, we want you with us. We want you with us. We gotta have you because later on you all will call us and say look I didn’t get my check. Daddy can’t go to the VA. You know, the National Parks are closed.
Yep, the most vulnerable Americans will really get nailed on this. Seniors on Social Security and Medicare, families on Medicaid, veterans who need medical attention. All so the Republicans can suck up to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Psychotic.
