Alaska lawmaker censured for asking if fatal child abuse saved taxpayer money | Category: General Source
That’s what happens when you ask integrity compromising questions to the people with none at all.
“some have made the argument”
oh no, it’s not *ME* saying this. I would never. It’s just that I heard some other people talking about this thing and I’m just curious.
If you’re simply looking at economics there’s a lot more cost from non-fatal child abuse than savings from fatal child abuse.
This is the logical conclusion of the political ideology that centers “lower taxes” as the goal without any regard for what’s being cut. This guy was just stupid enough to the most extreme version, but when any GOP politician promises to cut taxes by cutting entitlements, it’s the same idea: it’s worth making people’s lives worse to save a little on our taxes.
As someone who currently has friends at risk of being killed by an abusive parent
Genuinely, fuck this asswipe.
Unflinching “fiscal responsibility” is indeed a lonely road to hold…
This is what happens when life has no value in your country.
When you argue against healthcare for everybody, against people being able to acquire therapies and treatments that promote personal well-being being, when you argue that guns need to be protected more than children, you are arguing that life has no value.
Life has no value in America.
I’m genuinely shocked that he was censured tbh
A modest proposal, what if we fed the dead kids to the poors as well?
