“If the people have no bread, let them eat cake.”
--falsely attributed to Marie Antoinette
"If you are sick, please die"
--U.S. Republican members of the House of Representatives tell U.S. Citizens
Unlike Marie Antoinette's misattributed quote, there is no mistaking Congress' disdain for its citizens, led by House Speaker John A. Boehner. They don't care if more than 800,000 federal workers across the country are facing an
uncertain financial future, including everyone with a 401K savings that is losing retirement money.
In the days ahead many government agencies
prepared to close their doors, set up barricades and turn out the
lights all because Republicans don't like President Obama's Affordable Health Care Act.
Just remember in November to quote another outspoken, knuckleheaded Republican when you vote and tell your elected representative, "You're fired!"
