Billions for Defense, But Not One Cent for Education!


First, check this video. It’s a teaser for an episode of 60 Minutes.

So the takeaways that I get from this are that A: the Republicans are happy to spend a lot of money, money they like to say we don’t have, for defense and fighting the evil of ISIS and stopping those bad guys who wanna kill us, etc, etc. B: they want to help out working-class families, totes for realz, yo! C: They don’t want to support anything (like free community college or a higher minimum wage or increasing taxes on billionaires), that might accomplish this.

These guys, and those who vote for them, really do live in a fantasy world. In McConnell’s case, I believe it is this one. In Boehner’s case, this one.
