Blake Farenthold of Texas is one despicable fellow. He is a huge fan of Ted Cruz and wants him to be president (even though he is a staunch birther and, unlike Obama, Cruz was not born in America---go figure).
But recently, he told veterans who were going to lose their disability checks due to the government shutdown that they needed to make sacrifices.
When asked by a local reporter about people who say he's lost their vote; people like retired veterans who were on the verge of losing their disability checks next month
“I feel like my mandate when I was elected was to go reduce the size of government, lower taxes, and increase freedom, and freedom isn’t free, and sometimes you have to make a small sacrifice to move forward with what you’re after.”Naturally, he has never served in the armed forces. He has never sacrificed anything. He is the epitome of fat cat.
Please go home tea party!
