Oh, yum. a Satan sandwich with sugar. Emanuel Cleaver thinks that is what the debt deal represents. I was inspired to do this graphic after hearing Emanuel’s words.
Emanuel’s metaphorical skills need some work but he feels the way he feels. How this deal is antithetical to all the religions of the world and hurts the poor, aged, and vulnerable is unclear.
The Congress is only cutting $1 trillion over ten years starting in 2014 while the country is bankrupt. We won’t be able to help the poor and infirm if we’re broke.
Black Caucus leader, Emanuel Cleaver, doesn’t like the debt deal. He expressed his views during an interview on CNN’s The Situation Room when he said, “This deal is a sugar-coated Satan sandwich,” he said. “If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see…This debt deal is antithetical to everything the great religions of the world teach, which is take care of the poor, aged, vulnerable…And its worse when its been sprinkled with Potomac River water.”
