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

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

@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.

Welcome to Republican majority lead government:
They're quick to spend our hard earned money but refuse to share any of it with us.
There's never anything left for the people.

@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 @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 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.

@RepJoeKennedy The markets are finally reacting to these ridiculous tax cuts and budget deficits. @realDonaldTrump and @SpeakerRyan will try to blame Democrats but markets and the American people are smarter than that

I think we should pay for the GOP Budget Bill and Spending by reversing the Tax Cuts for the Wealthy and Taxing offshore money stashes by Corporations.

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!

@RepJoeKennedy @aishlingmara No one wants to stop the Crack epidemic that's been killing Blacks since 1983! It was put in Black communities to destroy them and it has.
Now that Opioid overdoses are killing rich & poor Whites at staggering rates every day, exceeding street drug overdoses, all hands on deck!

So let me get this straight @GOP. You want to continue the cruel and unusual punishment of Marijuana as Schedule 1 and you don't have the $ to provide for the general welfare of the country by addressing the opioid crisis that would be helped by Marijuana? About right?

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!

@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.
