A tweet is worth a million words

This tweet Lauren Boebert from 2020 is the embodiment of hypocrisy with irony so thick you can cut it with a dull knife. It’s also a cross section of what it’s like to be associated with a party who screams the demonization of socialism, yet benefitted or benefits from social infrastructures, only to want to tear it all down for the people who come behind them or for everyone else, but try prying it from their desperate grips.

The only way Tina and I have healthcare is through the ACA, and yet the people who claim to love me want it revoked. Because party over family. But yet, I don’t want their socialized benefits ripped from them. Is it because I vote liberal? I don’t think so. It’s because I’ve weighed the options.

People in my own family don’t benefit from the ACA, but they DO benefit from other forms of socialism. Why don’t these republicans return their Social Security checks? Why are they accepting tax-payer funded disability checks? Why aren’t they turning down their government issued tax-payer funded medicare or medicaid? Oh, because socialism that helps me is socialism that should not help others.

Plastering “Obama” on my healthcare = pejorative.

But benefiting from other tax-payer funded initiatives … that’s too far.

This is why we can’t have nice things. There are poor people that deserve to be poor and there are poor people who don’t. It just depends on what church you go to, and what Pantone Color your skin matches. /saracasm.
