To me this kind of thinking is ignorant.

Should I consider Sanders a war monger because so much of the (D) party was?

Rand Paul voted yes for Trump’s meaningless corporate tax cuts. Absolute rat. He didn’t care about the debt ceiling then.

In all fairness, the victims compensation fund is pure corporate welfare. Government agreed to pay billions of dollars to the families of 9/11 victims in exchange for them not suing the airlines. This isn’t just money for first responders. This is a pay out to the families of all the 9/11 victims.

He voted for the tax cut for the 1% though.

He did. I never did see anyone make him explain his vote.

This bill directly affects me. It guarantees that they will pay for treatments that I may need if one day I get one of the diseases that they deem to be from 9/11. I already lost significant air capacity from one of my lungs. There are responders that it literally means choosing health or losing everything they worked for. No one is getting rich over this.

Fine. But not on the backs of the 9/11 responders. Rand Paul is a total jerk for this.

Sent the message I'm guessing.
