I didn't cause this fucking deficit, old people who got sick didn't cause this deficit, hungry children whose homes were foreclosed on illegally didn't cause this fucking crisis, your damned war profiteering did, tax cuts for the super rich did, corporate welfare did.
I honestly don’t give a shit about “Shared Sacrifice” because I didn’t fuck it up. I didn’t crash the economy, neither did teachers or public union workers or anyone like that. The people who earn less now than their fathers did 30 years ago didn’t fuck this up. You know who fucked this up? The very, very rich people!
It drives me insane that Congress and the President aren’t repeating this over and over and over again. It isn’t just good politics, it’s the goddamn fucking TRUTH.
Demanding that the middle class and the working poor share a sacrifice is morally wrong. The middle class and the working poor have been making a sacrifice for ten fucking years.
I’ll say this again: there are more of us than there are of them. Just give me a torch and a pitchfork, and tell me when to show up.
Send me that memo, please.
