Are You Ready To Pay For The Health Care Increase Cynthia?

Credit the great folks at Think Progress

How stupid are Republicans? Meet Cynthia Davis State senator from Missouri (R) naturally.

In her June newsletter, State Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-MO) provided several “commentaries” to a press release from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on a summer food program.

Who’s buying dinner? Who is getting paid to serve the meal? Churches and other non-profits can do this at no cost to the taxpayer if it is warranted. [...] Bigger governmental programs take away our connectedness to the human family, our brotherhood and our need for one another. [...] Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can’t they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator. What is wrong with the idea of getting a job so you can get better meals? Tip: If you work for McDonald’s, they will feed you for free during your break. [...] It really is all about increasing government spending, which means an increase in taxes for us to buy more free lunches and breakfasts.

Now having more than my share of experience with Missouri I can't say I am surprised they vote for idiots like this. But I have a few questions for Cynthia.

Are you willing to pay for the health care increase that will happen if kids are eating free McDonald's everyday?

Do you realize one meal a day from McDonald's wolfed down on a 15 minute break will not cure Hunger?

I guess she thinks the state motto is "I got mine, screw you" rather than "show me." Sure would like a look at her annual charitable donations, which no doubt demonstrate how supportive she is of these local programs that make people feel soooo interconnected...
