Last Call For Punishing The Poor

The Richest Man In Congress(tm) wants you to know that there's no real poverty in America, because our poors are just lazy, not actually, you know, poor or anything.

Darrell Issa, the richest man in Congress, said America has made "our poor somewhat the envy of the world." 
Asked by CNNMoney whether he feels personally responsible to address income inequality in the United States, the Republican Congressman from California said "absolutely." But he noted that America is the richest country on earth and implied that those in poverty here are better off than the poor in other nations. 
"If you go to India or you go to any number of other Third World countries, you have two problems: You have greater inequality of income and wealth. You also have less opportunity for people to rise from the have not to the have," said Issa. In the U.S., he noted there is better availability and access to quality public education.

So shut up you awful poor people.  If you really were moral, you'd have $450 million like Darrell Issa. Since you don't, he's obviously correct about us.

We should probably cut taxes on the 1%, just to be sure.

Darrell Issa's just upset that India has higher inequality and less public school funding than the US. Fortunately, with a Republican Congress, Mr. Issa can fight to further increase income inequality in the US and also work to gut public school funding. Yes, Mr. Issa will not rest until the US leads the world in income inequality and lack of public schools. USA! USA!
