The GOP Hates Homeless Veterans

And the GOP doesn't give a fuck about even one of them.

In an effort to punish Democrats for passing health care reform, GOP Senators are refusing to work- and keeping everyone else in the Senate from working, too. That includes Senators that are trying to help homeless veterans.

Without unanimous consent, committees are allowed to meet for two hours
following the opening of the Senate session -- which on Wednesday was 9:00 a.m.
The committees need consent to continue and consent again to continue after 2:00
p.m. Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii), Chairman of the Veterans' Affairs Committee,
had his hearing shut down abruptly at 11:00 Wednesday morning, in the middle of
a discussion on the effort to end veteran homelessness in the next five years.
It is estimated that more than 100,000 veterans are homeless in the United
States on any given night.

That's right, to Republicans, a hissy fit is more important than helping homeless vets. These people people aren't the Party of No, they're the party of Fuck You, That's Why.

  1. Indeed. What amazes me is that the party of Fuck You still sells.
