"Fiscally responsible" Montana GOP blows off $1 billion in federal funding because it hates wolves
However, by doing this, they are also “nullifying” more than $1 billion in federal funding. (Kind of like how you have to have a speed limit in order to get federal highway dollars).
$1 billion is a lot of money for a state like Montana. That’s $1,000 for every man, woman and child in the state.
Republicans are simply pissing away $1 billion because they're bound and determined to make some statement about how they don’t like wolves.
For some reason in the Rocky Mountains, right-wingers have an outright pathological hatred of wolves ... and I do mean it is pathological ... and mystifying. The rhetoric paints these animals as evil, LITERALLY evil, not just animals, who kill out of nothing but pure bloodlust, and that they will be eating our babies any day now. We aren't talking ranchers who have lost some sheep or calves to wolves and have legitimate concerns about wolves. We're talking right-wing fanatics who hate the Department of Fish and Wildlife, hate the Endangered Species Act, hate the Environmental Protection Agency, and in general hate the federal government.
And the state Republicans are kowtowing to these folks by pissing away $1 billion in federal funds.
“Fiscally responsible” Republicans. :roll:
Make no mistake. They’ve …. gone … MAD! This is typical of how Republicans are behaving at the state level. Absolutely no common sense whatsoever.
