Tom Coburn (R-Idiot) on Sunday added insult to injury when he asserted that receiving Federal aid in the wake of a disaster caused people to not feel responsibility…or something. This theme is common for conservatives, though it is often used as a means for denying people basic needs, including food and shelter. The idea being if you feed people they will not be motivated to feed themselves. Coburn, a degenerate hypocrite voted against aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy. Tom Coburn, like all Republicans, is quite content to play politics with suffering and death.
“So, we’ve kind of transferred the responsibility for storms and damage to the federal government, instead of to the state government. We’ve created kind of a predicate, that you don’t have to be responsible for what goes on in your state.”
