Anymore, compassionate conservatism is someone who wrongfully executes an inmate but gives him a comfy pillow. And if you’re looking for any type of financial assistance from today’s GOP, your best bet is to wear a shirt that says “former fetus.” Time and time again, they’re showing themselves to be utterly oblivious to the needs of anyone who doesn’t have Koch as a last name.
Having both the stache and name to match a 70s porn star, Republican Congressman Cresent Hardy (R-NV) was the latest member of the GOP to castigate the poor and disabled.
In audio published this week by the Nevada State Democratic Party, Rep. Cresent was recorded by attendees at the Libertarian Political Expo in Las Vegas. By the way, a Libertarian expo in Las Vegas just means an excuse to kill strippers without government interference.
“I have three children,” Hardy explains. “One of them is summa cum laude and two were magna cum laude. The other one, he didn’t need an education. He works for Raytheon, smarter than all the rest. He works hard, he builds things that are genius. Some people have that ability.”
“But they all work hard. They are raising their own families,” he continued. “They will not be a drain on society, the best they can. Hopefully they will never have some disability that causes them to have to utilize that.” (Raw Story)

One can only conclude that Mr. 70’s porn stache is trying to point to fraud in the disability system. And while there’s indeed some fraud that takes place, it’s almost comparable to voter fraud. According to Social Security’s watchdogs,”fraud” in Social Security Disability Insurance is extremely rare. In other words, it’s yet another bad magic trick by a party that’s hellbent on budgeting the government of the literal broken backs of the poor and disabled.
