Batsh*t Crazy

The Kansas City Star reports:

JEFFERSON CITY | A report from a Republican-led Missouri House committee argues that illegal immigration is partly the result of abortion and a “welfare culture,” findings that Democrats called ridiculous.

The six Democrats on the House Special Committee on Immigration Reform refused to sign the panel's final report, which was signed by the 10 Republican members. In a letter to Rep. Ed Emery, the Lamar Republican who heads the committee, the Democrats said the report included things the panel never discussed and other comments that were "inappropriate."

One of those comments was listed in the report's recommendations section, Democrats said.

"The lack of a traditional work ethic, combined with the effects of 30 years of abortion and expanding liberal social welfare policies have produced a shortage of workers and a lack of incentive for those who can work," the report said. "Today's growing affinity for government dependency has created a class of potential employees who are not eager to work."
How the hell do people who dream this kinda shit up manage to get elected to office? Really. This is just a jumble of Conservative talking points thrown out in a heap in the hope that something sticks.

'Liberals, brown people and abortionists! It's all their fault!'

Does anybody take this stuff seriously? Ignoring the fact that 'expanding liberal social welfare policies' are in fact shrinking, the current unemployment rate in Missouri is almost twice what it was at the end of the Clinton Administration. I'm guessing that there are a lot of people in Missouri that would disagree with the assertion that all the willing workers were aborted.

The fact that somebody's tax dollars paid for this mish-mash of Republican talking points should anger somebody...
