Republicans spent $1.5 TRILLION to give billionaires and corporations tax cuts while AT THE SAME TIME they claimed there was just no money to continue the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for 8.9 million disabled and sick children’s health care.
Republicans spent spent $5 BILLION MORE to give wealthy heirs an inheritance tax break than the cost of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) they refused to fund AT THE SAME TIME!
This would have taken children off cancer treatment if not for Democrats using the government shutdown of January 2018 to force CHIP funding.
Sweet-talking Republican policies CUTTING HEALTH CARE FOR TENS OF MILLIONS of struggling and disabled Americans while they SIMULTANEOUSLY shower massive tax cuts on corporations and billionaires aren’t Christian.
Deporting parents without their children, even toddlers, and not bothering to keep track of them so our government doesn’t know how to reunite families isn’t Christian.
Ordering traumatized toddlers, sometimes in diapers, into deportation court without their parents to represent themselves is totally absurd and not Christian. Holding infants and toddlers so long that when they finally see their parents, they don’t recognize them is not Christian.
By both US and international law, severely abused refugees have a legal right to apply for asylum. Criminalizing and refusing them will clearly sentence some of them to death or even torture and is not Christian.
Taking HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars from disaster funding (Federal Emergency Management Agency), from money for education, health, and social services for low-income families (Head Start), money for cancer research (the National Cancer Institute), money for HIV/AIDS, programs for mental health, pregnant women’s health, women’s shelters, and substance abuse in order to dramatically expand detention of families with children and deport people with no criminal history is not Christian.
Refusing to ban assault weapons EVEN for those on the terrorist watch list, CUTTING money for reporting crimes like domestic violence and protection orders to the database, NOT prosecuting people who lie about their criminal records or mental illnesses to get guns, and REFUSING universal background checks on guns despite regular mass murders aren’t Christian policies.
