Two Facts

1. Republicans think people aren't entitled to food.

2. Republicans do not understand what it means to be human. David O. Atkins:
Republicans are very upset that people who are working just to hold onto health insurance might be willing to quit the labor force because the Affordable Care Act will allow them to. The notion that someone might devote their time to writing poetry instead of droning away at some awful job just to cover an insurance CEO's yacht fee positively incenses them...

It is not inaccurate or extreme to declare that ideological Republicans do not understand what it means to be human. ...It's not so much that conservatives don't believe such a world of boundless human potential is possible. It's that they don't want it to be possible.
