If one were dropped into the House during their sessions you would think that they were guilty of worshiping false idols of gold and coin with absolute disregard for those less fortunate and no sense of a societal responsibility to them.Once you get so far down, especially in this country unless you have a strong support system it is almost impossible to claw your way back up. The GOP is intent on eviscerating those support programs in order to give tax breaks to the wealthy.
