GOP Hates the Word Social Like in Socialist DEM Sen. Bernie Sanders ... Whew Boy

American Style Socialism Helped Turn this Around 

Food for Thought (and pun intended)

Next time hear a GOPer (more than likely a Right Winger) screeching about “free stuff for bums who voted for Mr. Obama” ask them to peruse this list to see it applies to them or any of their family members, past or present and them prepare to duck or laugh and then run like hell.

Normally and regularly someone will post or say on one of those red meat talk shows (e.g., Limbaugh or Hannity, et al) something like this: “Why are DEMS into social programs” as if to imply that our social programs somehow equate to something like they remember the now defunct USSR. You know as in “Union of Soviet Socialist Republic.”
  1. Head Start
  2. Social Security Disability
  3. Social Security Retirement and Survivors Benefits
  4. Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  5. Medicaid
  6. Medicare
  7. Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
  8. G.I. Bill
  9. Veterans' benefits
  10. Pell Grants
  11. Unemployment Insurance
  12. Food Stamps
  13. WIC (Women, Infants and Children (assistance)
  14. Government Subsidized Housing
  15. Home Mortgage Interest Deduction
  16. Hope and Lifetime Learning Tax Credits
  17. Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit
  18. 529 accounts (tuition programs Coverdell education savings accounts
  19. Earned-income tax credit (EITC)
  20. Employer subsidized health insurance
  21. Employer subsidized retirement benefits
  22. Federal student loans

If by chance and I’m pretty sure it would not be by change that they have ever been part of these awful, nasty, evil programs, tell them to please contact the nearest government office and ask to be removed or dropped from any coverage or benefits of that program(s). Then watch the tap dancing.
