Republicans who wish to cut down on the burden of disability insurance would do well to cut down on the burden of guns in this country, which cause a significant amount of disabilty. Instead, they play games with the lives of our families and children. For example:
"The Republican National Committee is skewering President Obama for failing to pass legislation on gun control, despite GOP lawmakers blocking the initiative in the first place.
The ad, called “The First 100 days,” shows Obama hugging Nicole Hockley, the mother of a Sandy Hook victim, and criticizes the president for not having much legislative success in the sequester, his so-called reluctance to stay out of the immigration reform debate , and yes, gun control.
In reality, Republicans and the National Rifle Association had been rallying against the bill, which would have strengthened background checks. The amendment failed 54-46, with 41 GOPers and five rural-state Democrats blocking the plan.
“Ninety percent of Democrats in the Senate just voted for that idea,” the president said after the amendment—catalyzed by the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.—failed. “But it’s not going to happen because 90% of Republicans in the Senate just voted against that idea.” He called the failure a “shameful day for Washington.”"
