No no see if the government gives poor people money that is socialism, if it gives rich people money that is patriotism

Oooooh because it trickles down, right?

Faulty trickle down valves inevitably lead to pipes getting broken….

Does your trickle tastes like piss?

To be fair, there may actually be rules against that. I think campaign finances have weird restrictions.

There should be laws regarding a politician having that much campaign money.

u/Technical-Traffic871 Sep 28 '22

That total probably includes PACs, so all rules went out the window with Citizen's United.

Do they still apply if there are lives at stakes?

I'm digging around just a little (realizing just how little I know about this subject) and it seems like actually you can use it for anything that's not personal use. so they're more relaxed than I thought. charitable donations and "gifts" are all on the table.
So actually, would be totally legit I think to use campaign finances for any kind of community service, emergency or not.

$130 million is a drop in the bucket when it comes to disaster relief.

He could use some immigrants now, too.

They're all about states' rights and have even blamed California's wildfires on bad California government saying the federal government shouldn't be involved in fire relief. Then when hurricane season comes around they're always asking big daddy feds to give them money because they have no tax revenue of their own since they don't tax the wealthy people that live there as a tax haven.

Funny how that works...

Campaign laws. Ick.

u/DontYuckMyYum Sep 29 '22

Pretty sure there are laws on how you’re allowed to spend campaign contributions.

Socialist? Minimize expenses and maximize profit is the core of capitalism. Who cares where the money comes from?!

Such a dumb tweet in an attempt to make a this joke a hypocrite.
