Congressperson Madame Virginia Foxx met a throng "of more than 20" persons at the Mountain House for breakfast last week (Watauga Democrat article here) and had a few things to say about tobacco quotas and Social Security. We read it so you don't have to:
WHAT SHE SAID: "Meetings are going on now to make it as close to the quota as it should be."
WHAT SHE MEANT: I don't believe in anybody getting any federal money. Except big fat corporations.
WHAT SHE SAID: "The rules are being worked out by other groups of people."
WHAT SHE MEANT: Don't call me with your complaints. There's not a thing I can do about it. Call the Democrats. Democrats probably did it.
WHAT SHE SAID: "Nobody wants to see people disadvantaged in this situation. It ought not to be overly complicated, but when you get government involved, that's what happens."
WHAT SHE MEANT: I'm not responsible for anything. Thank God I'm in the government but not of the government, if you know what I mean. You have no idea how hard it is to maintain your self-righteousness when you're making 200 grand a year. Did I ever mention to you how poor I was when I grew up?
WHAT SHE SAID: "While I can tell [your complaints] to [Elizabeth Dole and Richard Burr], it's much more effective coming from you all."
WHAT SHE MEANT: Liddy Dole ... bitch won't return my calls.
WHAT SHE SAID: "Demographically, things have changed so dramatically in this country. [Social Security] is a broken system."
WHAT SHE MEANT: I got stinking rich. Why don't you try that too?
WHAT SHE SAID: "The president is trying to get people thinking about planning for retirement by saying personal accounts. We need a mindset change in the country."
WHAT SHE MEANT: I love a strong man. Those thighs, those... Wha? I mean, baseball. I'm thinking about baseball. Boring game. Boring, boring game. Have I mentioned to you lately how I love the Lord and shower with Him daily?
WHAT SHE SAID: "It'll take gas prices getting more expensive before people's attention will be caught."
WHAT SHE MEANT: Big corporations just get me hot.
