I fail to understand why lawmakers feel justified in cutting spending on Medicaid and Medicare, while refusing to raise taxes on the ultra-wealthy (and constantly giving themselves pay raises). How can they feel good about reducing medical help for the poor and elderly? That's the most amoral, unethical bullshit legislating I've ever heard of.

Conservatives continue to demonstrate themselves to be ruthless toward the less fortunate. While large corporations reap massive rewards in the form tax cuts from the government, the poor and unfortunate get a whopping $50 billion in benefit CUTS by the government.

One thing I do know. Something is terribly wrong with the leadership in the country.
