'Cult of the Selfish' Lowers Majority of America's Net Worth, Skyrockets 1%'s Wealth

'Cult of the Selfish' Lowers Majority of America's Net Worth, Skyrockets 1%'s Wealth
The cult’s cruel campaign of civic meanness is achieving tragic victories. Just last week, the cult of selfish succeeded in passing a bill in the House that would slash funding for food stamps by $40 billion – taking milk from the mouths of millions of babes in the richest country in the world. Also, it secured passage of another bill in that would de-fund the Affordable Care Act, thus denying health care – and in some cases life itself – to millions of uninsured Americans.

GOP Desperate to Defund Obamacare Now Because They Know its Popularity is About to Skyrocket
Why are the Tea Party Republicans so desperate to defund ObamaCare right now? Because they know that once it is fully implemented, it will be impossible to take away the many benefits of ObamaCare. It is one thing to prevent something good from being passed by Congress. It’s quite another to take something away from the voters.

Data Dump: the Lower a State's IQ, the Lower Its Support for Obamacare

Data Dump: the Lower a State's IQ, the Lower Its Support for Obamacare
States with predominantly undereducated, low salary workers, and thus workers who are at a greater risk of sustaining a workplace injury, thanks to the absence of labor protection, are not only the states most in need of Obamacare, but are the states most against it.
