Lumps of coal for a few politicians

Congressmen like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul appear to rejoice at the thought of not passing legislation on unemployment benefits. For these men it is wrong for anyone to receive unemployment benefits, food stamps, veterans benefits, or any kind of assistance.

Please take the time to send a little lump of coal to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Cruz, Paul Ryan and Paul. And don’t forget Michelle Bachmann, who seems to have failed American history in high school.

If you have a particular Tea Party representative you’d like to thank for the recent shutdown that cost tax payers $28 billion, feel free to send them a little coal, too.

To everyone else, I wish season’s greetings and a Happy New Year!
