Same GOP Congress that passed an unfunded $1.5T corporate tax cut is now shutting down the government because they believe we can’t afford to confront the opioid epidemic or invest in our own communities.

Last month, Republicans had the political high ground - a succinct way to frame the debate - in the shutdown fight. That’s flipped this time.

@RepJoeKennedy or fund our military that they bring up every other second of the day. Let's have a parade though.

@RepJoeKennedy They were interested in providing Christmas to their donors at the expense of the elderly, children and the poor.

@RepJoeKennedy @StarredBannet Just realized I'm in love with @RepJoeKennedy because of his "word" to the people. Sorry hubby. All you said to me was "are we really having chicken AGAIN?"

@RepJoeKennedy The @GOP giving tax cuts to the rich and can’t take care of its citizens will be held accountable at the polls #BlueWave2018

@RepJoeKennedy Yes but a $22 million parade to worship the first American dictator that he can afford to fund.

@RepJoeKennedy Sadly, the families of opioid addicts can't line their pockets like the NRA to make it a top priority. Isn't it devastating to realize that the value of a human life now is a bipartisan calculation?

@RepJoeKennedy @DrRandPaul is suddenly worried about fiscal responsibility now that he enabled the biggest heist/transfer of wealth in modern history. #GOPTaxScam

@RepJoeKennedy They show their priorities over and over again. Money, the rich, and power. Thank you for being about people instead, Congressman.

@RepJoeKennedy I worry about our Debt The GOP should have never did a Tax cut from 35% to 21%. We won't have the money to pay this new debt maybe GOP Could have lowered the corporate rate to 27% to 25% The last time the GOP held all 3 branches of Gov. 1928 and Caused The Great Depression 1929

@RepJoeKennedy Rand Paul's "principles" didn't show up when he voted for the tax scam giveaway. It's OK for him to support debt when it's going to the right people. Secure the military? Build infrastructure? Nah.....

@RepJoeKennedy But Hey Joe...They can afford a #MilitaryParade even though the #Pentagon has lost track of Trillion$ of Dollars over the last few years..like maybe $21 Trillion! Enough to pay off the #NationalDebt!!!

@RepJoeKennedy The republicans screamed about Obama’s spending and now they are doing it even more.

@RepJoeKennedy Gettem Joe. Tell it how it is.

@RepJoeKennedy You voted for the tax bill @SenRandPauI. YOU already added to the deficit! YOU and the @GOP are the reason behind the need for an increase to the spending cap. We will not stand by while you hurt 99% of us while you further enrich the wealthy.

@RepJoeKennedy Million$ to billion$ to millionaires, corporations, Congressmen, and the Pentagon. But if money is to go for the middle class the Freedom Caucus and Libertarians want to shut down the government. Without the middle class Rand Paul wouldnt get a pay check. We fund the government.

@RepJoeKennedy They are doing nothing for the opioid crisis. Sessions couldn't even say ibuprofen correct today. What a joke the GOP!

@RepJoeKennedy They have to pay for it somehow. That extra $1.50 a week isn't looking so great anymore...

Welcome to Republican majority lead government:
They're quick to spend our hard earned money but refuse to share any of it with us.

@RepJoeKennedy And they will use it as an excuse to come for our medicaid, medicare, and social security. #GOPDNA

This was always the play. Create a deficit. Then use the "state of emergency" you've deliberately made to slash away at spending for the public good. And thus you create a permanent and powerless underclass

@RepJoeKennedy @JosephBisaccia Do NOT let them come after our Social Security and Medicare!

@RepJoeKennedy @NicoletteDalto4 Joe, now that it is a #GOPShutdown, there is no reason not to stand with Nancy and demand Ryan give you the same deal as in the Senate. We cannot be blamed for shutting down a government that is already shut down!

@RepJoeKennedy Not quite. GOP “cleverly” passed #TaxScam 2 break the bank 4 other needs - unless those needs benefit GOP, of course. They are guilty of far worse than hypocrisy. The ability to use their powers of elected office 2 inflict such harm, on so many, reveals #MoralTurpitude in action.

@RepJoeKennedy The opioid epidemic is a direct consequence of the inherent conflicts of interest in a for profit healthcare system. Single payer is the only truly equitable solution. The time for incrementalism has past.

What they don’t want to fund is equality. Giving as much to the middle class and poor is not fiscally irresponsible. Building a wall, Throwing a military parade and a $1.5 trillion tax break for Corps. & the richest 1% is fiscal lunacy!

It’s only because certain TYPES of deficit spending is “great.”
Military -> Great
Corporate Welfare -> Great
Rich getting richer -> Double Great!

Caring for the sick -> Not
Rebuilding infrastructure -> Not great AT ALL!
Repaying Social Security War “loans.” -> Fuck off!

Their hypocrisy is repulsive.
The GOP is fine with a deficit created by giving tax gifts to the wealthy, but they refuse a deficit that helps —that invests in— the people of our country.

@RepJoeKennedy The other half of that is they say the new budget will add about 1.5 trillion to national debt, yet no one comments that seems to be just about equal to what’s being lost in tax revenue thanks to the Republican tax gift to the rich.
