You were hungry and thirsty, so I eliminated Meals on Wheels.

You were a stranger, so I vilified you and demanded that you be deported.

You were sick, so I tried to repeal your health care.

You were in prison, so I tortured you.

You were in debt, so I increased military spending by $50 billion and raised your student loan interest rates.

You were uneducated, so I slashed education funding.

Your air, water, and food were polluted, so I cut environmental protections.

You were poor, but I didn't want to encourage dependence, so I gave more money to the rich.
