Two Reasons GOP Congressman Steve Scalise Is Simply Deplorable

There is no way to write this post without gut honesty.  Republican Congressman Steve Scalise is one mighty deplorable person.

Today the House Majority Whip, who is still recovering from his wounds after a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress in June, told Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview for “Meet the Press” that he still stands behind an unlimited right to bear arms.

When asked if he believed the right to bear arms was “unlimited,” Scalise said: “It is, it is.”  The results of Republicans advocate for are more gun deaths and injuries which cost Americans hefty medical bills--at the same time the GOP is working to undermine health care coverage in the nation!

Then there is the matter of who helped saved his sorry ass and the way this conservative is repaying her.

A lesbian police officer helped save Scalise after the shooting but he is still going to work to undermine her dignity.  Scalise is still planning to speak at a conference for an anti-gay group.   He will address the Family Research Council’s annual Values Voter Summit on Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C. The three–thumbers at the conference are anti-abortion, anti-gay but doubtless still insist on marrying their cousins and treeing raccoons on Saturday nights.

I had hoped there might be a Saul-type moment for Scalise after his shooting.  But when one has no moral center and devoid of critical thinking skills it results in someone not caring for gun policy after being shot and then undermining someone who helped saved his life.
