    She was on CNN talking about how Obama would not even cut Obamaphones in order to avoid the sequester.  I had never heard of them.  So I did a snopes check. Turns out that the only thing I can find is a subsidy from 1984-Reagan- to subsidize the poor (via the FCC) so that they can have land lines.  The FCC recently changed that to include cell phones.  The kicker is, they don't add to the deficit--they are paid for by taxes on our phone bills.

      let's not confuse the poor thing with facts, datum, or reality.  It's much easier for her to ignore the issues and buy votes, instead.

      She won the 2010 general election with 64% of the vote, against Democrat Daryl Romeyn. Romeyn spent only $2,320 against Mrs. Rodgers' total outlay of $1,453,240. She had won 63% of the primary vote, against Romeyn (12%), and three other opponents (respectively 9%, 6%, and 6%.)
      Emphasis mine.

      Can't explain it away with them, they are so fucking stupid.

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
