The Republicans have been trying to tell us they are the party of family values. I am not so sure. Maybe so, if they believe hungry children, mothers without prenatal care; women without adequate cancer screenings; elderly without homes, healtcare or food are family values. That is exactly what the Ryan Budget endorsed by Mitt Romney will give us. By the way, 31 Republican senators voted to oppose the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act. That's family values for ya!
These are the same folks who want to close rural post offices so they can continue to reduce raxes on the very wealthy. But here is the good news. Paul Ryan's budget will increase defense spending because the fact that we already spend more than the rest of the world combined is not enough. It must be auful to be fearful all the time!
