Compassionat Conservatism at Work

Increase minimum wage voted down twice.

Increased aid to the poor for heating costs voted down.

As I wrote in a post earlier this week, as the GOP starts to unravel, they are lashing out at the people least able to defend themselves from the monied power machine that the Republican party has become. We can hope that this is the beginning of the end of "movement conservatism," but we should not forget that dying animals are often the most dangerous.
