Posted on 03/22/2013 11:08:06 PM PDT by John Semmens
A tearful Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla) blamed heartless Republicans for the severe hardships the sequester is imposing on members of her staff.
Nearly half of my office staff has been forced to forgo lunch on a daily basis because of the cruel budget cuts that have been forced down our throats by the GOP, the Congresswoman claimed.
The toll of suffering has been less than half because some have been able to make do with sack lunches of leftovers or peanut butter sandwiches they bring from home, she explained. This is not a solution that can be applied across-the-board, though. Some simply lack the skill required to assemble their own lunches. Others feel that going out for lunch is an essential part of being a person of stature.
Wasserman-Schultz suggested that those wanting to help preserve the dignity and health of those serving in government could make a cash donation to the Congressional Aide Feeding Fund and should call her office (202- 225-7931) to arrange for automatic monthly transfers from their checking accounts.

I keep having visons of people dressed in rags bent over their desks in a counting house working by candle light.
She has enough in her saddle bags to sustain the masses.
I’m going to be laughing about this the entire weekend and likely into next week.
Every time a Democrat aide starves, an angel gets his wings.
There's always Food Stamps.
ROTFLMAO! Perfect! John, you really nailed this one!
LOL Sounds like something she would say.
That pig could feed an African village for 3-4 weeks.
