More on Alan Simpson.
Why President Obama keeps this clown on the his fiscal reform commission is beyond all understanding. He's a nasty, nogoodnik Repugnican who belongs in a Wyoming barnyard shoveling cow shit instead of shoveling his Republican shit in Washington!
You'll remember he's the asshat who wants to privatize Social Security, calling the salvatory program (salvatory for many Americans) "a cow with 310 million tits."
Now this dumbass has decided that the financial stress currently being felt in the United States is due to some of our military veterans who dare use the programs set up to help them recover from their war "wounds."
Yup. Joan Walsh tells all about it in an article, "More taunts to the Democratic base" in Salon. She explains that "...on Wednesday [Sept. 1] Simpson complained that American military veterans exposed to Agent Orange are hurting the country by using the program established to help them with health troubles related to the wanton use of that defoliant in Vietnam." Here's what he said:
"The irony (is) that the veterans who saved this country are now, in a way, not helping us to save the country in this fiscal mess."
Mr. Obama: Please give this awful excuse for a human being a one-way ticket west!
