Remember Those Evil Republicans Kicking Grandma Off a Cliff?

Say, remember the video released by the Democratic National Committee demonizing Republicans by saying conservatives wanted to throw grandma over a cliff?

Yeah…… this one.

Remember how the Democrats defended the ad by saying that Republicans didn’t care about the elderly and those on Medicare? Yep. It was those beastly, corrupt, damnable, depraved, destructive, foul, harmful, hateful, loathsome, malevolent, nefarious, no good, offensive, poison, rancorous, reprobate, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, spiteful, stinking, vicious, vile, villainous and wicked Republicans that looked at the elderly as “disposable.”

We guess California Governor Jerry Brown didn’t get the message.

Veto from Governor Brown halts adult daycare funding

Once the model for the nation to keep the elderly and disabled out of expensive nursing homes, California will cease to offer adult day healthcare on December 1 after Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would have kept adult day care centers open throughout the state.

Wait…this is the liberal bastion state of California. How could this happen?

The Legislature completely eliminated funding and Brown vetoed a proposal this week for a replacement program that could have helped about 35,000 of the neediest clients.

Without state funding, about 95 percent of the centers will close. Seventeen have already done so statewide, leaving some of the state’s most vulnerable residents in a lurch.

We don’t understand. What is this “funding” thing?

“The principle here is that California does not have enough money to do all the things it has been doing and for years, it’s been living on false pretenses, namely that there was more money than available,” Brown said.

You need more money? We have a solution. Raise taxes!

Have Babs Streisand, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon and all the other liberal and Democrat stars come out to show their support for people paying more taxes! The stars will pitch in, right? We can count on the “rich” out there, right? California based Google has profits of over 10 billion a year and certainly can afford more taxes to support grandma and grandpa, right? It seems to us that if California is kicking old people out into the streets, someone in the state is just not paying their “fair share.”

That has to be it, right?

The only solution is to raise taxes! C’mon people of California! Stand up and pull out your wallets!

Pay more!


Back to reality.

We all know California won’t raise taxes. They can’t. The well is tapped out. Unemployment in California is rampant – a whopping 11.8%. Companies are leaving the state as fast as they can pack their rented U-Hauls.

What does all of this mean?

It means that Democrats use the elderly as political bargaining chips. It was nothing more than empty rhetoric when the “push grandma over the cliff” ad appeared. Many on the left said it was accurate and that is how Republicans, conservatives and Tea Party members really feel. The Democrats welded their demonizing, lying paint brushes to cover as many conservatives as they could.

But when push came to shove, Democrat Jerry Brown, in a Democratic state, with Democratic spending ideals, and Democratic values kicked the elderly to the curb.

That’s right.

The state of California, the “shining beacon of liberalism” in this country told their senior citizens to go somewhere else.

The next time some left leaning liberal Democrat talks about how conservatives and Republicans don’t care about the elderly, remember this post.

Remember that is was DEMOCRATS who lined the elderly up like a soccer player and booted them over the cliff.
