What's a Few More Dead Poor People?

No big deal, right? A few more dead poor people is no big thing.  Hell, they were probably sucking off public assistance anyway.  Food stamps, unemployment insurance.  It's really better that they're dead.  Especially dead old people.  I mean, who really gives a flying fuck.  No more sponging off Medicare and Social Security.  As long as my taxes don't go up, right?
Many states hit hardest by this week’s searing heat wave have drastically cut or entirely eliminated programs that help poor people pay their electric bills, forcing thousands to go without air conditioning when they need it most.

“I’ve never seen it this bad,” said Timothy Bruer, executive of Energy Services Inc., which administers the federal Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program in 14 Wisconsin counties. The group has turned away about 80 percent of applicants seeking cooling assistance.

The sizzling summer heat comes after a bitterly cold, snowy winter in many places and at a time when unemployment remains stubbornly high.

The cuts began after Congress eliminated millions of dollars in potential aid, forcing state lawmakers to scale back energy assistance programs. The agencies that distribute the money are worried that the situation could get even worse next year because the White House is considering cutting the program in half.
Fuck 'em. It's their fault they're poor, after all.

America, Fuck Yeah!
