Better Uses For $25 Million - And Response

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

So the Democrat party bet $25 million on a 30 year old Russian who has never done anything in his life running in a district he doesn't even live in? Ossoff received donations from 800 Georgians and 7,000 Californians according to an article in the AJC. And they wonder why they are a distinct minority. 

The $25 million could have been used in many more productive ways. 

The Democrats always worry about the homeless, at $100,000 per unit they could have provided 250 families with a basic house. 

They are worried about the un-insured, if you figure $12,000 a year premium, they could have provided medical coverage for 2,083 individuals. 

If you figure $5 a meal they could have provided 5,000,000 meals to the hungry. 

The  cost of higher education is always a concern, at $25,000 annual tuition they could have provided scholarships for 1,000 needy students. 

But at least our friends in North Atlanta benefited from the $25 million infusion into their economy that Nancy Pelosi and her friends provided.

It would be interesting to know how the same liberals who are up in arms over possible Russian meddling in our national election rationalize that it is okay for out-of-state liberals attempt to meddle in a Congressional election in Georgia.  With a candidate who himself was ineligible to vote there because of being a non-resident. 

Does this make any sense on any level?  Oh, I forget; it doesn't have to since liberals are involved.
