DeaH: Somehow, I don't think the people who voted for him are going to like this. Of course, he's retiring, and I bet with a lot more money than when he joined congress.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: At least he's consistent, in a fiscally sound sociopathic way.
AdolfOliverPanties: This is the mindset of today's GOP. Millions of dollars towards useless gestures like voting to repeal Obamacare, billions of dollars fo outdated and unused military programs, but for AMERICANS that really need help?
