To forever cement his world class hypocrisy status, Rehberg showed up this morning at an event honoring senior volunteers–after an attempt to eliminate the senior volunteer program’s funding just last year.
Rehberg boldly appeared at the Rocky Mountain Development Center in Helena to say he got “a great deal of pleasure” out of seeing the programs he tried to eliminate in action.
The Retired and Volunteer Service Program, the Foster Grandparent Program and the Senior Companion Program make up what is known as the Senior Corps. The Montana Senior Corp matches the experience, skills, and talents of seniors with community needs.
After he failed to eliminate the program’s funding entirely, Rehberg later proposed more cuts to the Senior Volunteer Corps, citing the need to cut “wasteful” programs and move funds “for programs that actually help people and families.”
The Guinness adjudicator who carefully followed Rehberg’s attempt reviewed hundreds of hours of footage, clippings, and political pablum before announcing the designation as official. ”Dennis Rehberg has earned this award hands down. We’ve never seen anything like it.”
