It appears to me that in order to hold a political office one must be born without any conscience. I came to this conclusion upon hearing that Waterloo and East St. Louis “Meals on Wheels,” or senior meals, would be cut out due to Illinois not being able to reach a budget agreement.
How strange is this since they agreed on voting themselves a raise? In the real world, one needs approval of a job well done in order to get a raise and since the people in office work for us, I don’t remember anyone asking for my approval.
But I suppose the plan is to starve the elderly, therefore cutting off any Social Security they receive, so they can put it in their own pockets. What’s next? Starving children? Oh, wait, there are children starving already. Hitler would be so proud.
Never miss a local story.
