They're really ramping up their War on the Poor, aren't they? What a strategy: simultaneously drive the middle class into poverty, take away the few things that make it possible for the poor to stay alive, and transfer ALL of the wealth to the top (including weapons contractors).
What a bunch of indecent, anti-American, anti-human shitholes.

Actually, they're both in the same sentence of the Constitution. Not that I can figure out what at least 90% of the Pentagon budget has to do with "defending" us from anyone.
"The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and PROVIDE for the common Defence AND GENERAL WELFARE of the United States"
