  2. You don't give a pedophile credit for volunteering his time at a home for boys. This is where the left fails in creating a clear difference between Republicans and the progressive movement.

  3. Two trillion dollars to people who already have far far more than they need while they cut services to the needy. It’s just bloody obscene !

  4. Respect our brave men and women in uniform … as long it costs no money or is some stupid memorial we can jerk off on.

  5. Republikkkans: "We will never forget the first responders!"
    First Responders: "We're starting to have health issues from the 9/11 event."
    Republikkkans: "New phone, who dis?"

  6. I don't think this as a +1 to mitch, he took his sweet ass time to do something, until jon stewart stood up. I don't think we should reward mediocre behavior

  7. Cuckservitives get trigger over taking a knee at a piece of shiet cloth, but crickets over denying funds to actual heroes who sacrifice there health to rescue people.

  8. hmmm…for the first 2 years of President Obama's administration the Dems had control of the House and Senate and they did not feel any need to "do the right thing"….politics of convenience yet again

  9. How right wing is the US? It takes em 18 years to provide healthcare to the handfull of people who risked their lives during the biggest attack on the US in its history

  10. 2:42 for once I agree they have a lot of money to spend on the military but they can't raise the pay for the people serving including those who served in illegal offensive wars on countries that didn't even attack us? Seriously how the army gets paid is criminal.
