Rep. Bill Young (R-FL) is a prime example of why I would never vote for a Republican even if I actually agreed with their policies. They're mean and getting meaner. Instead of actually listening to constituents, they belittle them. They pound their chests and talk about being good Christian men, but really, they're just mean, nasty, petty humans who eat too many lemons for lunch.
Constituent: Hi, I'm Pepe, how are you? Happy Fourth of July. Jesse Jackson, Jr. is passing a bill around to increase the minimum wage to 10 bucks an hour. Do you support that?
Young: Probably not.
Constituent: 10 bucks an hour would give us a living wage.
Young: How about getting a job?
Constituent: I do have one. $8.50 an hour.
Young: Well, then why do you want that benefit? Get a job.
Constituent: I have a job. It's not enough to get by on.
Got that? Mr. Constituent has a job that isn't enough to get by on, and Mr. Young's response to him is "Get a job." Would that be another job on top of the one he already has? Why not just make the minimum wage something people could actually live on?
