The screenshot taken from twitter user @Mtpols pretty much speaks for itself:
But it also highlights a very sad and prevalent viewpoint that many on the GOP side feel about these potential cuts to our state budget. These programs don’t matter, care for the disabled, poor, and elderly does society no good. Heck, Mr. Smith even used the same GOP talking points Speaker Knudsen has trotted out: cut the Helena fat.
It’s nice that Mr. Smith outed himself as an insensitive bigot. If only all people holding these views would just say so publicly with their name, photo, and profession attached.
I called the 800 number on my Charter bill to ask if this multi-billion dollar company shares the viewpoint of their VP in Montana, but they just kept trying to get me to upgrade my cable package.
These proposed budget cuts are brutal, and people like Mr. Smith just don’t seem to care.
