There was a diary not too long ago which told of paul ryan marching in a parade and basically blowing off a question from a constituent by offering the person some candy or a Packers schedule. Of course, we also heard about him holding his “town halls” before private paying audiences where he can avoid the questions of those who do not support his agenda. He has no answer for people who want to discuss the effect that the policies he supports would have on their lives. He has no answer because he doesn’t care. The effect his policies have on peoples’ lives is not a consideration for him.
It’s the same way rmoney balks when the destructive actions of bain are raised, and claims he’s being unfairly attacked. He feels it's unfair to claim he caused this damage deliberately when actually the effect on the employees was never a consideration. It was about “business”. It’s the same way w reacted when Cindy Sheehan asked to know the “noble cause” for which her son had died. The only reason w knew her son existed was because he was made to suffer the embarrassment of his being asked to account for his war policies, which he wasn’t about to do, of course.
When senator turtle or the great orange boner obstruct the workings of our congress, their political ideology overshadows the effect their obstruction has on the citizens they supposedly represent, despite the fact that a majority of citizens voted for President Obama and support his agenda.
None of those repug politicians live in our world and thus they don’t concern themselves with what happens to us as a result of their policies and actions. Their attention is focused on their world – the world in which the rich supply them with the means to obtain and keep their positions of power, and then welcome them to enrich themselves by selling their influence. That world has no room for our puny concerns. They couldn’t care less how it affects us when they sell our government out from under us.
