Republican senators need help with math

The level of math education among the Republican senators has got to be at the second-grade level.

They remind me of my nieces playing hide-and-seek with their dad at age four and announcing where they were going to go hide. The source of funding for this latest round of tax cuts coming from Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security? Are they? That is chump change compared to the trillions they pour into the military budget – that they wastefully spend on God only knows what.

Oh, I forget. That's where they, their families, and their donors own stock and that's what makes them all millionaires. Excuse me. Mustn't mess with senators' income.

My income? My health care? My husband's health and well-being? They don't care about those.

Well, we'll see about that. I'm helping get out the vote – no thanks to Republicans' voter suppression work, gerrymandering, and other un-American and traitorous activities.

They will pay. We will see to it.
