Republicants: A Continuing Series on Reading Between the Lies

Why I could never, ever bear to associate myself with the leadership, ideology, or members of the Republican Party.

Candidate Rand Paul on the Social Security Disability Program:

“You know, the thing is that with all of these programs, there’s always somebody who’s deserving and everybody in this room knows sRand Paulomebody who is gaming the system. What I tell people is, ‘If you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn’t be getting a disability check.’ You know, over half the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts. Join the club! [the group laughs] Who doesn’t get up a little anxious for work every day and their back hurts?! Everybody over 40 has a back pain.” [via]

[O]ver half the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts.” And remember, this man is a doctor, Jim. As in, scientist. One who bases his judgments and action on empirical data.

I’m not on disability, but my head hurts.

    Yeah, that’s mighty ignorant. Even Romney only singled out 47% — less than half.

    So, in the Valhalla libtards like yourself occupy, nobody games the system and fakes a disability claim.It’s all up-and-up. And this is why liberalism is a mental disease.

      Not sure why you would draw that conclusion, ‘Nonymass. Maybe in the miasma of your mind you figure that the only alternative to 50% is 0? Comments like this, if you look like Dr. Paul when you hop out of your truck, I’d be willing to believe you’re disabled. Thanks for your insights, as always.

    Just another out of touch elitist blabbing off to please the lowest elements of his voting base. Remember how they refused to sign the UN document ensuring rights and respect for the disabled because they feared Shira law? Morons. Assholz.
