You can't make this shit up. Monty Janeaux, a 54-year-old pipe fitter in Texas, is voting for Romney. His employer won't get health insurance for him (would rather pay the fine), he believes immigrants are taking "our jobs", and he refused to take welfare after he applied and they only offered him a measley $16. Let's examine this situation since I find it emblematic of the low wage Republican supporter that willfully cuts their own throat by supporting the very people who have created the situation he loathes. Read the whole story here.
In the beginning of the article Mr Janeaux makes this comment:
"This is a big problem, and I can understand where Obama is coming from with this whole health care deal," Janeaux said. But, he said, unless the government can come up with a way to help people like him, who work for small businesses, he can't be supportive.
Ok, fine. Then this comment is made:
"He doesn't see how the Obama administration's health care plan, the Affordable Care Act, would help him. Janeaux's employer "is a die-hard Republican" who has said "no way" to following orders from the federal government to provide health insurance for his workers, Janeaux said. "He'd rather pay the penalty than pay more for insurance, than offer his guys insurance," he said.
So, to this dumbass Texan, the fact that his EMPLOYER won't provide him with the health insurance that Pres. Obama is trying to get for HIM and HIS FAMILY, it is Pres. Obama's fault. (Like I said, you can't make this shit up.)
He was unemployed and tried to go on welfare for his family. He did the right thing, put all the paperwork through, and they offered him $16 a month. His comment:
""That's nothing -- $16?" he said. It still stings, because he believes there are people who receive much more assistance who are able but unwilling to work."
Well yes, asshole, single women with children, people who can't find work because there is nothing in their field, and yes, a small percentage of people who do fit the category he described. But that number of "unwilling to work" is small compared to the others who can't and need the assistance. $16 can buy you 3 or 4 dozen eggs, a sack of potatoes, some pasta, and that's about it. That's enough to survive on if you need to survive, barely, for his family (it's really not even that much and that points out another problem with Texas welfare calculations of course, but it is the DEMOCRATS and LIBERALS and of course OBAMA this asswipe blames). But that's not good enough for this Texan who feels he deserves more. The irony is of course that he supports people who would make this payment LESS, not MORE. He's done this to himself and is too fucking stupid to admit it or see the problem.
Like most unemployed, he did find a job (with another Texas ingrate, apparently). So the assistance was only going to be temporary as intended. But he wanted steak and shrimp and ice cream. Too bad asshole, you live in a state where YOUR welfare payments are determined by REPUBLICANS in charge so bitch at them.
Mr Janeaux is also worried about support of gay marriage -another reason to hate Pres. Obama. So it's fine with him to deny rights that he enjoys to other Americans. Other tax paying Americans. Other Tax paying Americans who would agree that people in his unemployment situation need more assistance and work to get him more. But fuck them, they're gay!
You need to tread the whole article. This is the Republican base, ingrates and assholes who do not have the brains to know who has put them in their dire straights. Mr. Janeaux, to you I'll say what your Romeny/Ryan ticket will say to you (but not to your face). In the words of Judge Smails (Caddyshack),
"YOU"LL GET NOTHING AND LIKE IT!"
Texas ingrate, willfully and cognitively dissonant asshole and red state moron Monty Janeaux agrees.
