Was Tillis displaying, quite unintentionally, his Republican "brand"?
The sense of naked entitlement Mr. Tillis exhibited is reminiscent of Marie Antoinette. Tillis evidently regards the poor and the infirm as his pawns, to be moved about in conflict with other pawns. No, it's more like Jonathan Swift's deadpan solution for "the Irish problem." "Let's eat the poor!"
Only difference is that Tillis can't resist playing with his food.
