‘Tis the Season for Demagogues

During the recent Senate debate over the Republican proposal to slightly cut federal funding, Hillary brought up the Holy Family.

While blasting the GOP for allegedly “choosing corporate tax breaks instead of foster care,” she said, “I grew up loving the Christmas season, telling the story over and over again about how Mary and Joseph found themselves with no place to stay and how Jesus was born in the manger. Many people say: Look, they were shut out, left behind. We are shutting out and leaving behind a lot of our children with these budget decisions. It is wrong.”

She didn’t mention how Mary and Joseph were “shut out” and “left behind” because Caesar Augustus wanted to tax them.
