Several weeks ago, I wrote this post.
Now we are approaching Mother’s Day, and what would the “holiday” be without an ugly rehashing of the dramaz from the Romney campaign. (To be fair, this is paid for by the “Non-coordinating” Super PAC, Restore Our Future.) Watch, and enjoy.
I don’t really have anything to say about this right now that I have not already said.
But I will say this:
As the Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney took about 500 police officers off the streets. So Happy Mother’s Day, to you mothers who live in dangerous parts of town. Just teach your kids how to duck and cover.
During his term as Governor, Mr. Romney also made cuts to the budget of fire safety equipment – about $2.5 million. So Happy Mother’s Day. Send your kids to school with their own fire extinguishers.
As President, Mr. Romney claims that he would find $500 billion to cut from the federal budget, most of which would come from social programs such as Medicaid. So Happy Mother’s Day, poor working women. Here’s hoping your kids don’t get sick this year.
Other programs that would stand to lose funding under Mr. Romney’s proposed budget cuts are:
health research – Happy Mother’s Day, moms with sick kids. Cancer won’t be cured this year.
education – Happy Mother’s Day, moms who can’t afford to send your kids to private schools.
food inspection – Happy Mother’s Day, moms who count on safe and affordable food products to feed their children.
housing and heating subsidies – Happy Mother’s Day, moms who want to put a roof over your kids’ heads and keep them warm at night.
food aid for pregnant women – Happy Mother’s Day, expecting moms who want to eat.
Happy Mother’s Day, from Mitt Romney’s team.
