Unless you have visiting Venus for the past six months, you have got to be wondering what is wrong with GOP legislators. How can any human propose a bill that strips away millions of people' healthcare and maternity care; approve of polluting rivers and lakes by banishing the Clean Water Act; allowing financial advisers to steal their clients' money; and on and on. Henry Giroux wrote an commentary in Truthout entitled The Culture of Cruelty in Trump's America in which he states:
For the last 40 years, the United States has pursued a ruthless form of neoliberalism that has stripped economic activity from ethical considerations and social costs. One consequence has been the emergence of a culture of cruelty in which the financial elite produce inhuman policies that treat the most vulnerable with contempt, relegating them to zones of social abandonment and forcing them to inhabit a society increasingly indifferent to human suffering. Under the Trump administration, the repressive state and market apparatuses that produced a culture of cruelty in the 19th century have returned with a vengeance, producing new levels of harsh aggression and extreme violence in US society...
He also says: ...For instance, Trump's 2017 budgetary proposals, many of which were drafted by the hyperconservative Heritage Foundation, will create a degree of imposed hardship and misery that defies any sense of human decency and moral responsibility.
So one has to ask don't these half-ass elected leaders, specifically GOP, have any idea of what they are doing? Are they so beholden to psychopathic billionaires that they are willing to watch people die from a destroyed social safety net? It appears the answer is that they don't care. So we can easily categorize them as worthless human beings and what does that say about there supporters, the sixty million people who voted for Trump and the GOP? Not Much!!!
